With so many people living and working around the Washington, D.C. metro area, information on what’s happening can oftentimes be overwhelming and scattered. There are several websites and outlets that list events happening, what restaurants are doing what, where to go, etc., but we wanted to point out one or two that we’ve found helpful.

Arlington Events

As you already know, Capitol Shine has an Arlington  shop located in the Courthouse neighborhood. In addition to the events page in the latest Arlington Connection newspaper and the ARLnow event calendar, we also recommend the stayArlington events page.

The websites are updated weekly with events ranging from marathons to museum tours and everything in between. This weekend, for example, has 15 events listed on stayArlington alone including:
