Anchored by Signature Theatre, a movie theatre and WETA, the region's leading public broadcasting station, Shirlington is Arlington’s art and entertainment center. It is defined by its European-style promenade flanked by over 30 restaurants and retail shops that line a walkable, urban streetscape. Just a short walk from the downtown area, Shirlington is surrounded by parks, trails and the historic Fairlington neighborhood. Shirlington is also home to many businesses and corporations, large and small. Though a pedestrian paradise, Shirlington is well connected to the Washington, D.C. metro region with direct access to I-395 and a transit station that connects to the Pentagon and National Landing.
