Our Downtown Arlington, VA apartments are a luxury living community just across the river from the nation’s capital in Washington DC. There is plenty to do on our property with our communal amenities, but when you want to spend the day outdoors in the town and surrounding areas, check out these fun activities.
Spend the day at the zoo with your family or friends! Admission is free, so this is activity you can enjoy without spending money. Explore the zoo on your own, without a guide and experience wild animals up close. This zoo is home to common animals that are not endangered to more exotic animals that are critically threatened in the wild. There are also educational classes offered to both adults and children if you want to learn more about the exciting animals at the zoo.
If you need some fresh air near the water, head to Yards Park. It is located along the Anacostia River and features a green space and water activities to enjoy. The Dancing Fountains are at the park’s entrance for kids and adults to splash around in. At night, the fountain area is illuminated with color-changing lights. There is another area to cool off in called the Canal Basin and Waterwall, where visitors can wade in the water. You can also bring your dog to the park because there is a dog run where your pup can enjoy being off-leash.
Take a little road trip, about 50 min from our community, to Chesapeake Beach! Located in Calvert County, Maryland, the community has a quaint historic downtown to explore and features quiet secluded beaches and waterfront restaurants. If you want to get away from the busy city life in Arlington, spend the day visiting Chesapeake Beach.
Another short trip you can make to spend the day outdoors is one across the river to Capitol Hill. Explore the beautiful residential area around the Capitol, or actually tour the Capitol anytime between 8:30 a.m. and 3:20 p.m. The United States Botanic Garden is on the Capitol’s ground if you want to experience natural beauty as well.
