homes for sale: Where is Aurora Highlands? - 03/24/14 03:58 AM

 
Across Eads St. relatively close to the Crystal City Metro is the neighborhood of Aurora Highlands.
 
 

 
Aurora Highlands is in Arlington County and dates back to the days when Arlington County was a sleepy rural suburb of Washington DC. One of the most interesting assets of Aurora Highlands is the row of shops and restaurants along 23rd St. in Crystal City.
