Considering moving to the DC area and curious what the age demographics are in Arlington and Alexandria. Is it just suburbs with families? Or is it decently young since it’s right out of DC? I’m a 24 year old F if that helps!

It’s quite a young area, especially near the metro stops and “downtown” areas. Although what you described is a very large area.


Clarendon and courthouse are very young. But a lot of Arlington is suburbs too. Like D1 said, near a metro tends to be younger.


Arlington courthouse area is young, but very homogenous (read: lots of white people). Alexandria downtown-ish area skews younger but anecdotally seems a little more toward early thirties. Any reason you wouldn’t live in DC? 24F seems prime age to live in DC - either downtown or anywhere in the orbit (SW, DuPont, AdMo, NoMa etc)


Clarendon/courthouse for Arlington. The Bartlett building if considering Pentagon city. Dunno about Alexandria


24 is fine for Arlington. Some neighborhoods better for younger people than others


If ur under 28 just stay in DC unless you’re single and want to remain that way
