Walk Scores for 10 Arlington Neighborhoods

We did them for D.C., and now it’s time we did them for suburbia.

Today we’ll kick off the suburbs with a county that features nary a town or city, but one still brimming with people. Yes, Arlington, one of the more distinct counties you’ll find in the nation.

So, what do they call their population centers then? Urban villages. You wanna rent an apartment here and don’t have a car? Let’s see if there’s a neighborhood in Arlington where you can make it without wheels. As it turns out, there are quite a few. (And I know this from experience.)

1. Ballston-Virginia Square          Walk Score: 90
2. Clarendon-Courthouse             Walk Score: 88
3. Lyon Village                                 Walk Score: 86
4. Aurora Highlands                       Walk Score: 85
5. Colonial Village                          Walk Score: 85
6. North Rosslyn                             Walk Score: 83
7. Radnor/Ft. Myer Heights           Walk Score: 82
8. Ashton Heights                           Walk Score: 77
9. Fairlington-Shirlington               Walk Score: 76
10. North Highland*                       Walk Score: 73

*North Highland also goes by “North Highlands”; there doesn’t seem to be a consensus about the name, at least none I could find. Either way, it’s pretty walkable.
