Arlington Instagram Style


I regularly scour Instagram to spotlight cool happenings, curious people, and interesting stuff throughout Arlington, Virginia. Here’s a rundown of a few fantastic Instagram finds, including:

  • How to get into the holiday spirit locally
  • How Arlington residents pour love back into their communities

It’s Ugly Sweater Weather

Have you been waiting all year to pull out your winter sweaters for the cold season? Or maybe you’re itching to show off that perfect ugly Christmas sweater (or maybe just itching)? Here is the perfect chance. Head over to the Citizen Burger Bar in Clarendon. Combine that with drink specials and burgers and it makes for a can’t-miss event.

Holiday Shopping? Shop Local

There are a lot of aspects that go into making the holiday season jolly, and for many people that includes presents. If you’re shopping for friends, coworkers, loved ones, or someone else entirely, consider shopping local in Arlington, VA. Shopping at nearby, independently owned stores not only will feed money back into the local economy, but might just help someone else afford presents for their loved ones as well.

Buy A New Coat, Donate The Old One

With the seasonal shopping comes wonderful deals on everything from books to clothes and everything in between. If you find your closet filling up with beautiful new clothes you bought for a steal, consider donating your old clothes to those who need them. The folks in Rosslyn managed to donate 265 bags of clothes all together!

Presents Aren’t Just For Humans

Don’t forget to include our furry friends in your shopping! Five lucky dogs under the care of the Animal Welfare League of Arlington got to go to Dogma Dog Bakery and pick out presents for themselves. Scroll through to see all of the adorable photos! (And don’t worry- the other dogs back at the shelter got toys too.)

Gone, But Not Forgotten

The holidays are a time to spend with family and those you love, but we shouldn’t forget those who have passed either. Volunteers in Arlington make sure of that by putting wreaths on the graves of those buried in Arlington National Cemetery. The result is a beautiful way of honoring those who have served for our country and, for some, may not receive visitors otherwise.
