Clarendon is often thought of as the laid-back, cool kid in Arlington’s class of urban villages. This is a place where you can expect to see t-shirts, baseball caps, flip flops and Volvos. It’s a nightlife destination where people can have a great yet moderately priced dinner before heading to one of several local bars. Of course, Clarendon is much more than that. Not just a hip place to hang out after work, it also offers mid-sized office buildings near the Clarendon Metro station and safe, stable neighborhoods full of single-family homes and tree-lined streets, offering great opportunities to live, work, and play – no car required.
