We all know there are numerous benefits of walking which include low impact, reduced stress, improved focus and the best benefit is you get to participate in National Walking Day. Walking does not require any special gear or training hence makes it feasible for all.
Join Arlington Transportation Partners and WalkArlington on Wednesday, April 1 for National Walking Day and celebrate the benefits of walking with exciting walk-inspired events. And yes—we know its April Fool’s Day but this is not a drill! Here’s the breakdown of events for the day.

Happy Hour and Evening Walk

Our friends at WalkArlington will be holding happy hour at Open Road, a new restaurant in Rosslyn, and hit the sidewalks for an hour-long evening walk.
