Arlington General: 44 reviews and 99 photos

Favorite thing: As the name implies, the Court House Station area is home to courts--Arlington's county courts as well as the rest of the county government. This neighborhood also has plentiful shopping, dining, and nightlife options, just two stops from DC on the Metro. Furthermore, the Washington Post calls this neighborhood home.

One of the centerpieces of the neighborhood is Courthouse Plaza, a pedestrian mall with 19 shops and restaurants, and outdoor concerts in the summer. This area also has a movie theaters with six screens and a Saturday farmers market. For dining, not many places in the entire DC area beat Ray's The Steaks or Ray's Hell Burger. For nightlife, Court House has several Irish pubs including Kitty O'Shea's and Ireland's Four Courts.

This area also has some small historic sites such as remnants of the Civil War forts that once formed a defensive ring around the capital city. Fort Woodbury once stood near the site of the current Arlington County Courthouse, where Woodbury Heights, a high-rise condominium, now stands.
