The Ballston neighborhood is located in downtown Arlington just South of Interstate 66 or the Custis Memorial Pkwy. It is technically right in the heart of Arlington and Virginia Square. Named for the Ball Family, relatives of George Washington, Ballston is one of the more popular neighborhoods in the entire Arlington County area and the hub for the commercial and industrial parts of Arlington.
In addition to dozens of restaurants, fabulous shopping, eclectic, trendy coffee shops, and fabulous food, Ballston is also the host of the annual Taste of Arlington Food Festival. Started in 1987, this foodiestreet fair draws nearly 20,000 visitors each year and is organized by the Ballston-Virginia Square Partnership. Living in Ballston means you don’t have to worry about parking or transportation; simply walk to your favorite dining destination.
Each year hundreds of restaurants and local vendors turn out to showcase and highlight their most treasured dishes. Happening about the third Sunday of May each year, you can enjoy delicious food and lively entertainment that literally takes up several streets. There are over 40 restaurants that participate in this annual event such as The Melting Pot, PF Chang’s, Willow, Front Page, ethnic favorites and tried and true comfort spots. Most of the proceeds from this event go to the Virginia Hospital Center and Arlington community foundations.
There is something for everyone at the Taste of Arlington. You can stroll the streets, find your favorite restaurant, and chat with the chefs; you can do it all at the Taste of Arlington in the Ballston Neighborhood.
In addition to foodie events such as this, there are also over 50 restaurants within the Ballston and Virginia Square area. Whether it’s authentic Mexican food, hometown southern comfort, the best of smokehouse and tavern barbecue, Asian delights, or Polynesian treats, there is something for even the most discriminating palate.
Looking to be close to all the best foodie spots in Arlington? Consider a home, condominium, duplex, or estate in the Ballston and Virginia Square neighborhoods. Prices start at about $600,000 and go up from there depending on size and location. Most of these homes were built prior to the 1940s so you’ll find many two-story and three story brick homes with just a few modern styles. Many of the homes will either offer a carport or a one-car garage underneath. Call me today to show you that Ballston Neighborhood is great for Foodies as well as homes.
