As we head into a week of giveaways for our Rosslyn Staycation series, read up on all the ways you could make the most of an overnight getaway right here in the neighborhood.
What better way to welcome springtime than a Staycation right here in Rosslyn? As the weather gets warmer, it’s time to get out and take advantage of everything the neighborhood has to offer.
Whether you’re looking for date night ideas, a fun day with friends or a solo adventure, Rosslyn has just the thing! We’ve compiled the perfect itinerary for you to enjoy an overnight stay, including ideas for delicious food and drinks, a great workout and of course, a little pampering.
Before enjoying your day in Rosslyn, please note the most up-to-date guidance from Arlington County surrounding COVID-19 protocols, and remember to wear a mask and practice physical distancing!
Kick start your day with a quick workout at E60 Fitness.
Get your day started on the right foot with a quick workout! While Rosslyn has plenty of outdoor space for fitness and wellness activities, E60 is centrally located and has all the equipment you need to get your sweat on. Head to 1524 Clarendon Blvd and purchase a day-pass to kick your Staycation off on a healthy note.
Reward yourself with a delicious breakfast from Eclairons.
What’s the point of a good morning workout if you don’t get to treat yourself after? Pick up a delicious reward from Rosslyn’s patisserie, located at 1737 Wilson Blvd. With everything from delicate french pastries to homemade mediteranean food, you don’t need a sweet tooth to love their menu (we recommend it, though!).
It’s not a Staycation without a little pampering! Rosslyn’s newest luxury nail salon has just the services to relax you into full vacay mode. Kick back with a complimentary glass of champagne or craft beer and enjoy PAINT’s non-toxic approach to self-care. While you relax, read up on what makes this woman and veteran owned business tick from our recent feature! Find them at 1520 Clarendon Blvd (just a 5-minute walk from Eclairons!)
By now you’ve probably worked up quite an appetite! Head to 1201 Wilson Blvd where you’ll find Open Road, right in the heart of Rosslyn. You can’t go wrong with any of the American-style classics on the menu, but we have a soft spot for the French Onion Burger — overflowing with Gruyere cheese, caramelized onions, crispy onions and steak sauce aioli. Just beware of a serious food coma!
Did you know that Rosslyn has the most public art in Arlington? Check out WalkArlington’s guided sidewalk tour of Rosslyn’s public art to get outside and walk off that lunch! WalkArlington’s interactive tour is a great way to explore the neighborhood and take in some of the beauty right here in our own backyard. And if an art walk isn't your thing, nearby trails like Mt. Vernon, Heritage and the Custis are easily accessible, so check out this compilation of scenic routes to enjoy around the neighborhood.
Nothing marks the beginning of spring like an outdoor happy hour! Located at 1901 Fort Myer Dr (just down the block from Open Road), Continental has daily happy hour specials from 4-7 p.m., not to mention it’s family and dog friendly! Come for the craft beers and cocktails, stay for the laid-back atmosphere that makes any afternoon feel like a vacation.
Cap off the night with a delicious Italian dinner and specialty cocktails at Rosslyn's Sfoglina.
Handmade pasta? Now that’s amore! Sfoglina’s menu of fresh pastas, small plates and a few meat and seafood entrees, coupled with the elegant, comfortable decor is the best way we know how to cap off the day. Find Sfoglina at 1100 Wilson Blvd and wind down from your day of self-care while you enjoy something off of the extensive wine and cocktail list.
Put the finishing touch on your perfect day with a luxurious overnight stay at Le Méridian.
We don’t know about you, but our perfect day definitely ends with a great night’s sleep in a big, comfy hotel bed. Less than a 5-minute walk from Sfoglina, up-level your Staycation with a reservation at Le Méridien Arlington. Located at 1121 N 19th St, Le Méridien has the views and accommodations to close out your Staycation on the best note.
