Looking for adventure? You don’t have to head out on the highway. Adventure is all around you—right here in Arlington. WalkArlington will get you there with our series of neighborhood Walkabouts. These self-guided walking tours help you discover the beauty and history of Arlington neighborhoods.
Click on the Walkabouts listed at left to explore your options, from urban villages to rolling parkland, quaint neighborhoods to city streets. Each Walkabout map lists the starting point, distance, and type of terrain you’ll find, plus a description to give you a feel for the neighborhood. Pick the Walkabout that sounds best for you. Or start with the first tour and set a goal of walking all 20.
Eighteen of our 20 Walkabouts are also available in a brochure, which can be downloaded here in one very large PDF file: WalkArlington Walkabouts brochure (PDF, 9 MB. Adobe Reader required.) You may also download full-page Walkabout maps for individual neighborhoods by selecting from the neighborhoods listed on the column at left.

Gulf Branch park, Blacksmithing, The utterly fantastic Gulf Branch Nature Center and MIles of trails!
All this .. and only a mile to DC !

What a great site.
Wish you would add the Shirlington/South Arlington area to your maps. Shirlington is an eating/entertaining/happening place. Easy walk from many surrounding communities, from King Street to Four Mile run - Dog parks, Bike Path, Community Center, Animal Shelter (always has something going on), Near Columbia Pike Plus easy transportation - if you get tired of walking - to North Arl or Alex or DC.
Thank you for caring and sharing.
