Arlington, Va cited as one of the most livable cities in the US

A article in the May issue of AARP named the most livable places at 50+. The catagories for determing the most livable places included housing, neighborhood, transportation, environment, health, engagement and opportunity. They ranked the top 10 in Large (500,000+), Medium (100,000-50,000) and Small (25,000-100,000) cities. Arlington ranks in the medium category and came in at #6. The comment for Arlington was that the Bikeometer in Rosslyn averages almost 4500 clicks a day. I know I’ve contributed to that. I guess that falls under almost all the categories except maybe housing…unless you live near the bike path (which I do), so I guess it can include housing too. As of yesterday 101,632 bike passes were logged for this year.
