Ballston-Virginia Square Walkabout

Anchored by George Mason University, the Arlington Arts Center, and Quincy Park, Virginia Square is the educational, cultural, and recreational hub of Arlington. Ballston, the county’s west-end downtown, includes the Ballston Common Mall, topped off with a public skating facility that’s used for hockey practice by the Washington Capitals. This Walkabout also offers opportunities for quiet contemplation in parks, the Central Library, Welburn Square, or the tropical atrium of the National Science Foundation.
