What: You are cordially invited to the debut of the Arlington Ridge-Aurora Highlands Walkabout, the 20th in our series of neighborhood walking tours and the first of our limited edition Walk Friendly Community Walkabouts!

Join Arlington County Board Chair Mary Hynes and neighborhood residents on a shortened version of the two-loop Arlington Ridge-Aurora Highlands Walkabout, stopping at community gathering places, historic sites, scenic overlooks, world-class shopping destinations, and verdant parkland to share the stories and secrets of this vibrant, multi-faceted community.

The route was developed by four longtime Arlington Ridge-Aurora Highlands residents who nominated their neighborhood during WalkArlington’s Walk Friendly Community Walkabout campaign, launched in recognition of Arlington’s 2011 designation as a Gold-Level Walk Friendly Community!  The seven-stop, two-mike Walkabout begins and ends outside the Aurora Hills Community Center.  So mark your calendars, lace up your walking shoes, and come on out!
