This is where people want to be. They want to be someplace that’s vibrant—where they can get to work one way and decide they want to go meet friends for dinner another way. That’s what Arlington is all about, a place where people don’t necessarily have to drive to do what they want to do. We’re honored to recognize Champions that make this possible,” said
