In South Arlington, the Fairlington Village community has provided an affordable place for people to live since the 1940s. The development, known for its green spaces and community amenities, also offers something many buyers want: walkability to four shopping centers for errands and restaurants. Shirlington Village, about a mile away, includes a library, movie theater, restaurants, shops and the Signature Theatre for live theater.
