The house is located across the street from Bon Air Memorial Rose Garden Park. This expansive 24-acre park includes a basketball court, child's playground, 4-mile Run bike/running trail, tennis courts, volleyball courts, baseball diamond, scenic creek, picnic areas with charcoal grills and a large open field.
North Arlington is already one of the lowest crime and safest areas of the country. My home is located on a dead end street so even lower traffic and more safety. Feel safe going for a walk in the neighborhood, a run on the bike path or a picnic in the park.
If it's winter and there is snow, we have some great hills to sled!
There is free parking on the street in front of my home. However, I will need to provide you with a pass. Please return it upon your departure.
Convenient access to MetroBus and MetroRail. It is an easy $1.75 bus ride to Ballston Metro, one mile away. Buses run every 12 minutes during the week from 6am to 8pm. Every 30 minutes before and after that and on weekends. Any #1 bus (1A, 1B, 1E, 1Z) will get you to Ballston Metro. Any #1 bus (1A, 1B, 1E, 1Z) will return you from Ballston Metro. If needed, I can provide you a link to the schedule.
If you will be touring the city using the MetroRail, it is best to purchase a SmartTrip card. Transfers from MetroRail to MetroBus using SmartTrip cards are free. Bus usage without transfer but with SmartTrip card are discounted. I can provide you with more information about getting around DC using public transit. It is a very efficient and enjoyable system to use.
If you wish to drive from the house and park at the Metro, the best station is East Falls Church. There is a large parking lot and it is only two miles away.
