Shirlington is a population center (or "urban village”) in the southern portion of Arlington, Virginia. The neighborhood gets its name from combining Shirley (Shirley Highway) and Arlington. The area is known as a predominantly residential community, but has undergone many upgrades over the years, resulting in many upscale residential and retail areas.
Located in the valley of Four Mile Run, a tributary of the Potomac River, Shirlington is a beautiful, conveniently located community with so much to do! The Village at Shirlington offers a unique shopping experience with many stores and restaurants to choose from. Popular restaurants and shops in Shirlington include Aroma, Cake Love, Bear Rock Cafe, Johnny Rockets, Capitol City Brewing, Best Buns Bread, Bungalow Billiards, Caribou Coffee, Bistro Bistro, Luna Grill and Diner, and more. Get your grocery shopping done at Harris Teeter, which has a pharmacy, too. WETA is located here, as is Signature Theatre, a popular professional playhouse in Arlington.
For golfers, Shirlington is located near several golf clubs throughout the region, including Washington Golf and Country Club, the Army Navy Golf Club, and Bethesda's Congressional Country Club -– home of the 2011 U.S. Open!
This particular community is served by several Metrobus stops, all of which connect you to the nearby Pentagon City and Crystal City Metro stops, allowing quick and easy access to Washington, D.C. for professional sporting events, sightseeing and nightlife opportunities and much more.
