Clarendon at a Glance

By the early 1900s Clarendon evolved into Arlington County’s original “downtown” and was named after Edward Hyde, 1st Earl of Clarendon, a leading statesman and historian of the English Civil War.  During the early 20th century, trolley lines converged in Clarendon near the current day Clarendon metro center. Today, Clarendon is a walkable urban neighborhood located between Rosslyn and Ballston. Wilson Boulevard and Clarendon Boulevard are home to many unique shops, trendy bars, and small restaurants. The neighborhood is a vibrant mix of upscale businesses, commercial retailers, and mom-and-pop shops. The major retail area is The Market Common. You’ll also find public art, lots of open space and charming residential neighborhoods. Popular events include the farmers’ market at Clarendon’s Central Park, Clarendon Day, Arlington Neighborhood Day Parade, the Clarendon Cup, the annual Mardi Gras Parade, and Tax Blues night.
