Clarendon

Location Clarendon is a neighborhood in Arlington County, Virginia, located between the Rosslyn area and the Ballston area. Because of the local street network configuration, many of Clarendon’s 40-45 blocks resemble triangles rather than squares. The precise dimensions of Clarendon are not defined, and several different sets of boundaries are often used.

Metro Located on the Orange and Silver lines

Character Clarendon has a commercial district that rivals many major shopping areas in DC, but it also has offices, apartment buildings, townhouses, and single family homes in the same area. It’s very compact and easy to walk around, with quiet tree-lined residential streets just a few blocks from the restaurants and bars along Wilson Boulevard

Stores to  Shop and Browse 

Revolution Cycles  An entire floor dedicated to bicycles, including a room full of carbon-fiber.

Kinderhaus Toys Kinder Haus Toys is an old-fashioned store that stands for service, selection, and style. The array of high quality children’s products includes toys, books, hobbies, crafts, clothes, shoes, and sporting goods. The toys are, for the most part, powered by imagination — not batteries

CD Cellar CD Cellar has been a favorite of music fans buying and selling CDs, LPs, and DVDs for 20 years  literally tens of thousands of titles to choose from—and best of all, you can ask to hear almost everything in the shop at one of their listening stations.
