Best Views for Fireworks in Arlington

best condo views for fireworks

Arlington has some of the premier views of our nation’s capital and people will pay top dollar for one. Here is my list of the best condo views. Many of them also provide a prime vantage point to view the annual fireworks on the mall. Here are the top ten condos to view the show:

  1. Prospect House - Not the newest building on the block, but the views are priceless. Huge balconies and 18' floor to ceiling windows make for good views inside and out. 
  2. The Weslie - This non-descript building of million dollar condos is right next door to the Prospect House. If you saw the movie ‘Charlie Wilson’s War’, which had some scenes shot from one of the penthouse units, then you know the amazing views from this building. 
  3. Waterview - Although none of the units have balconies, the rooftop has a fantastic rooftop terrace to view all of DC. 
  4. Turnberry Tower - The ultra luxury building in Rosslyn provides fabulous views from the upper floor balconies. 
  5. The Odyssey - One of the best rooftop terraces around provides panoramic views from the National Cathedral to the Masonic Temple in Old Town and a straight shot view of the monuments.
  6. The Representative - This Arlington Ridge landmark building provides sweeping views of the city. 
  7. Woodbury Heights - Some owners lost their view when the Palantine was built, but some still have a one of a kind view on the upper floors. 
  8. Clarendon1021 - Units on the 7th floor and higher on the eastern side have the view and everyone enjoys the view from the rooftop pool. 
  9. The Bella Vista - This Crystal City highrise has panoramic views from the upper floors.
  10. Liberty Center - Although a little distant in Ballston, this luxury highrise has a fantastic view on the terrace rooftop and the name alone earns a place on the list.
