About the Falls Church Neighborhood
Falls Church is a suburban area of northern Virginia with what residents refer to as “small-town charm.” Home to families in single family homes built mostly in the early 20th century, Falls Church as an area is not a walkable neighborhood, though the hotel is a short, walkable distance to the metro. Visitors should be prepared to drive to amenities.
Head to Sweetwater Tavern for hand crafted beers and “world famous” fajitas or try the Vietnamese cuisine at Four Sisters. Falls Church does offer a few of its own attractions, such as Cherry Hill Farmhouse, a historic site; The State Theater, a music venue; and Eden Center, a Vietnamese-American shopping center that offers visitors a variety of places to eat and a cultural experience. Within close driving district is the Mosaic District, where visitors will find a variety of restaurants and shopping, and Tyson’s Corner, the largest shopping center in the area.
Getting to the tourist attractions will take visitors between 20 and 30 minutes on the metro. Those choosing to park at the metro are recommended to use West Falls Church station, which has a much larger parking facility than East Falls Church, which is closer to the Econo Lodge. Its proximity to I66 makes it ideal for those venturing farther south into Virginia to visit historic sites, particularly Civil War battlegrounds.
Bikers and joggers will enjoy the easy access to the W & OD Trial, which will take you to the heart of Arlington, VA.
