Arlington’s Arts and Entertainment District
With its established café culture, live theater and pedestrian promenade, Shirlington has become the arts and entertainment capital of Arlington. Anchoring the Village at Shirlington is a multi-million dollar theater-library complex, home to Arlington’s nationally-known Signature Theatre, and the state-of-the-art Shirlington Library. Added to the mix are new condominiums, lively restaurants and exciting shops, all with easy access to Washington and close-in proximity to Interstate-395, the Pentagon and Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport.
