Coral’s Quick Overview
Rosslyn has worked hard to appeal to those looking to establish a home rather than just a 9am to 5pm destination. There are pockets of single-family homes, however it’s largely high rise and condo heavy so perfect for those urban dwellers.
It’s an excellent location for those commuting into the heart of DC – just a 10 minute ride, but Rosslyn also has plenty to keep residents busy and happy during non-work hours. There is several parks and family spaces in all directions including Dark Star Park, Freedom Park, Gateway Park and even a neighborhood pet garden. And of course, Rosslyn is home to some of the most attractive tourist spots like Theodore Roosevelt Island, the U.S. Marine Corps War Memorial and the Netherlands Carillon. The Observation Deck at CEB Tower has amazing 360° panoramic views. Apart of touristy hot spots, Rosslyn has 100+ restaurants, cafes, retailers, fitness studios, hair salons and super markets including Target.
What about the neighborhood scene? There are several year-round big and small events such as summer farmers market, Rosslyn Rocks! Concerts and Rosslyn Cinema + Pub in the Park. In the fall the Rosslyn Jazz Fest takes over Gateway Park with live music performed by some of the biggest names in jazz and world music today. Rosslyn is perfect to work AND live!
