Westover Village in Arlington, Va.-My “walk to” neighborhood

I just posted a link to an article talking about how Arlington is one of the most walkable cities. I live near the East Falls Church Metro and my “walk to” neighborhood is Westover Village. The commercial area of Westover is located on Washington Blvd between N. Mckinley Rd. and Longfellow Streets. The businesses here and the the library provide a modern urban feel to this neighborhood. Residents in this area also have easy (healthy walk, or metro bus) access to the East Falls Church Metro.

In Recent Years, the Westover Beer Garden has provided a neighborhood gathering place. On warmer evenings you can find gatherings of friends and families listening to music and sampling some excellent craft beers. The beer garden also now has an indoor bar and restaurant. The adjacent grocery has a decent stock of must haves.

Ayers General store has pretty much everything you need. All kinds of hardware, gardening supplies and that birthday gift for the childrens party this afternoon that you forgot about until just now. Here is a photo I just took in front of Ayers….ready to start gardening?

After you load up your car with all your Garden supplies don’t forget to stop into Toby’s for an ice cream or latte. YumIMG_4671
