Listed on the National Register of Historic Places

Arlington Heights is a national historic district in Virginia. The area was formed from the integration of twenty-five subdivisions platted between 1909 and 1978. Arlington Heights stands out for many reasons, but a notable aspect is its diverse population.

Easier With a Car

The community is walkable, and one of its great traits is its proximity to other neighborhoods. Depending on where you live in Arlington Heights, it’s a relatively short drive or walk to get to the nearby community. Most residents in this area go to work with a car while a surprising number also take the bus. The 77, 23A, 23B, 41, and the 4A run throughout town, while the 10B and 23T service the Ballston Metro station. This metro station runs on the Orange and Silver Lines.

Mostly Single-Family Homes

The area is primarily a single-family residential neighborhood. These single-family dwellings include a variety of styles similar to the Tudor and Colonial revival. There are also a number of twin dwellings and garden apartments found throughout the area. For those looking for a home in central Arlington then Arlington Heights should most certainly be on your list as the market is both reasonable and progressing.

Great Dining Options and a Classic Cinema

Towards the north section of the neighborhood is Pupuseria Dona Azucena. This Latin American restaurant has a simple setting but its small menu of fantastic pupusas and other Salvadoran tastings offers a very traditional feel of El Salvador.

Another pleasant dining option is located on Columbia Pike in the southern area of the neighborhood. Lost Dog Cafe is a takeout restaurant with an extensive menu of pizzas, sandwiches, and craft beers. Their dough is top quality and their beer list is constantly changing taps to keep with the season. Plus, a portion of their profits go to dog and cat rescue.

Down the road is Thai Square. Considered one of the best and most authentic Thai restaurants in northern Virginia, this restaurant offers excellent food with a wide variety of options. Some delicious choices would be the Larb Kai, Pla Goong, and any of their drunken noodles.

Staying on the same road, but much closer to Lost Dog Cafe, is Arlington Cinema N’ Drafthouse. This old-school 1930’s movie theater screens second-run flicks while serving plenty of drinking options. It also hosts comedy and live-music shows and waiters serve you beer & cocktails as you enjoy your movie or show.

Salsa Room is also a nearby attraction. This high-energy Latin nightclub & bar offers dance lessons, DJ nights, and a Spanish/Caribbean fusion menu.

Thomas Jefferson Community Center & Park
