Lyon Village

All the Fun but None of the Noise
Lyon Village is one of the most friendly neighborhoods in Arlington. Numerous parks with children's activities and its quiet community gives it a very fun and homely feel. It is away from the bustling city life but does have some popular places such as small boutiques, grocery stores and restaurants a few blocks away for shopping, hanging out or simply walking. Commuting has never been a concern in this part of the city.

Reviewers claim it's a hidden gem right outside of DC and you won't find a safer spot. It's very easy to get to downtown DC and it never gets too noisy or loud.

Lyon Village — 7.7/10 Rating (based on 20 neighborhood reviews)
So much to do, so many restaurants, so many bars, great shopping, many cafes, four grocery stores within walking distance! Lots to do, but also quiet and has nice suburban feel. Can't say enough great things!

It's basically DC. That is NOT a good thing. Traffic patterns are ridiculous and the trees to buildings ratio is abysmal.

The neighborhood has a very busy nightlife. It has several bars and lounges in the area, as well as a great selection of late-night eateries. During the day time, the area is very peaceful. Great places for brunch, shopping, and groceries.

Clarendon is the most similar to D.C. as far as an Arlington neighborhood goes. There are tons of bars, restaurants, gyms/yoga studios, grocery stores. Walking around, you will see tons of young professionals/graduate students. It's really clean and quiet. It's on the silver/orange metro line so you can really get anywhere. It's super closer to major highways/the airport, so if you have a car, there is not a single place that's too far away.

The Clarendon
Living in Clarendon is fun, though there can be noise at night on weekends because of its proximity to bars. I definitely recommend Arlington for the commute time (read: ~25 mins door-to-door), but I may move to Courthouse if I decide to move again.

The Clarendon
It's a neighborhood where the majority of the buildings are private houses. That makes the living experience so much more enjoyable because although you're right by the Lee Highway, 7 minutes' walk from the Courthouse Metro, 10 minutes' walk from the Clarendon area, you get a suburban feeling day in and day out. Our apartment complex has our own yard and out-door parking lot, it's a hidden gem right out of DC! Grocery stores (Giant, Wholefoods) and pharmacies (CVS and Walgreen) are also all within a 10-minute walk range! Commuting was extremely convenient. I work part-time at McPherson Square and I can take both a bus right outside my building or choose to walk for 7 minutes to the metro stop. I'm honestly in love with my neighborhood, it's my everyday getaway from all the craziness and stress from my busy life :)

Lyon village is a great place to live because it it really close to Clarendon with all of the night life and restaurants, but you don't have to deal with all the people and noise. It is very safe - as a female I never feel insecure when walking around at night alone.

very easy to get to DC or the more "hopping" parts of Arlington (Clarendon, Ballston, etc). All of the amenities are right there though. Would recommend for anyone who enjoys a safe quiet place just outside the bustle.

Super close to CVS, coffee shops, metro, and you can walk to Clarendon without living in it. Noise level can be high with Wilson Blvd and the fire and police stations. Overall, very convenient!

When I first came to school everyone said DuPont circle was the place to live and I wanted to be in the scene with everyone. After living in Arlington, I do not regret this decision at all. Everything is so clean and classy and safe. It is really the perfect community filled with young professionals. I personally think it is a better place for networking than the city.
