Crystal City is a popular neighborhood in Arlington, Virginia and one of the closest Virginia suburbs to Washington, D.C. Many residents live in the area, but commute into the nation's capitol for work everyday. Residentially, Crystal City is largely composed of apartment buildings and condominium complexes. Commercially, Crystal City has several hotels that are popular with D.C. tourists, a national gym chain, several chain and local restaurants, and Crystal City Shops, a popular shopping mall with plenty of shops and restaurants. With its own stop on the D.C. Metro, Crystal City has easy access to Washington, D.C. and its surrounding areas. 

Arlington is almost treated as an extension of Washington, D.C. as it is also home to Arlington National Cemetery, a national airport, the National 9/11 Pentagon Memorial and the Pentagon, the headquarters for the U.S. Department of Defense and the military forces. All of these landmarks make this area a bustling metropolis.

Crystal City is a very urban environment with tall buildings, plenty of traffic, and very few mature trees. Thankfully, Crystal City has plenty of well-maintained sidewalks and, like much of the greater D.C. area, is extremely pedestrian-friendly. In fact, many local businesses will often have doggie water bowls out on the sidewalks during hot summer days. 

Crystal City is also a relatively flat neighborhood, meaning you and Fido shouldn't have too much difficulty getting around. 

The boundaries of Crystal City include 15th Street, Army Navy Drive, and 6th Street to the north, George Washington Memorial Parkway, a Metro line, and a greenway to the east, Four Mile Run and 24th Street to the south, and South Eads Street along with South Fern Street to the west. Richmond Highway is a major roadway through the neighborhood and it runs north to south, making it an area that should likely be avoided if you're not interested in maneuvering your way through traffic.
