National Walking Day

Wednesday, April 3

We are excited to bring you opportunities to explore Arlington, get health and wellness tips, and end your day with an evening stroll. Four pit stops will be set up around Arlington, so pick one and visit between 11:00 a.m. and 1:00 p.m. to pick up swag, fitness tips, and giveaways.

New in 2019

This year, we have partnered with Arlington Transportation Partners to host a happy hour and walk from 6-9 p.m. The evening event is an opportunity to gather with locals, discover a neighborhood, and enjoy treats from a local restaurant.
