Another Perk of Living at The Maxwell: The Nearby Metro Lets You Easily Explore D.C.

The Maxwell is an amenity-packed apartment community. And the list is (thankfully) long. The building is located in the heart of bustling Ballston—one of Arlington, Virginia’s most happening spots—and features a club-inspired residents area that’s complete with lounge seating and flat-screen TVs, a fitness and business center in addition to a secluded courtyard that includes an outdoor lounge and fireplace. But one of the biggest perks of living at The Maxwell is that it’s within walking distance to the Metro. Maxwell residents will even receive a $65 metro card upon move in. In case you’re not familiar with it, the Metro is D.C.’s biggest public transportation vehicle. You’ll love that it takes you to spots all over Virginia, Maryland and D.C. The Metro can come in handy when you’re catching a flight as it goes straight to National Airport, but it’s also just a great way to explore your surroundings. Follow this guide to soak the best of what these Metro stops—all on the Orange and Silver lines—have to offer.

Tysons Corner

Maxwell residents who love to shop should rejoice at this stop. Recently built, this gives you access to the region’s largest and nicest mall. You’re bound to find a shop you love at Tysons Corner Center. Catch a film, ride the upstairs train if you’ve got kids or grab a bite to eat at Shake Shack—the popular New York City-based burger chain’s first outpost in Virginia.


Arlington’s upscale Clarendon neighborhood is always worth a trip. For starters, some of the city’s top restaurants are located right by this stop. Grab a beer at Galaxy Hut or the Arlington Rooftop Bar & Grill. And if you’re looking for the region’s best beignets or just some really good Cajun-inspired cuisine, head to the Bayou Bakery.


For a hearty dose of culture, be sure to get off at the Rosslyn metro stop. Swing by the Artisphere to catch a musical performance, watch an outstanding film or channel your inner muse by taking an educational class here.


When you’re new to the D.C. area, going to the Mall and its many world-class, free-admission museums is a must. Snap Instagram-worthy shots of the iconic buildings downtown. The Capital building is stunning, and the reflecting pool looks gorgeous too. As the title of this Metro stop suggests, you must go to the Smithsonian, even if you hate museums. Check out the Hope Diamond and just marvel at this museum’s impressive collection.
