Walk to the Pentagon from the Daventry Neighborhood in Springfield (VA)

Daventry in Springfield VACindy have you lost your mind?  You can't walk to the Pentagon from Daventry in Springfield (VA).  It's 20 miles.  You will be arrested as soon as you set foot on I-395 aka Shirley Highway.  What is wrong with you?

Alright already but you can walk to the direct Pentagon Slug Line at the entrance to the Daventry neighborhood.  From there you will be whisked safely down the highway to the drop off point at the Pentagon.  If you aren't familiar with the term "slug lines" in relation to Northern Virginia commuting don't panic. It is a unique and legal way to hitch-hike your way to the Pentagon, State Department, World Bank or many other locations in DC.

Slug Line Staging Area in DaventryA free ride isn't the only reason that Daventry is a popular neighborhood in Springfield. The community offers a community pool, community center, tennis courts, four tot lots and access to walking paths connected to the huge Fairfax County Park Authority network of trails and access to Lake Accotink.

Daventry offers a variety of housing including 512 townhouses most with garages, 212 single family homes and Ramblewood at Daventry offers 160 condominiums.   In addition to the ease of commuting to the Pentagon using the slug line, it is also within 5 miles of the Springfield Metro Station accessible by driving or taking the Metro or Fairfax County Connector Bus also located at the entrance to the community. 

Multiple shopping centers are close by featuring Giant Foods, Trader Joes and Whole Foods.  You can find plenty of places to eat including Mikes American Grill, Five Guys Burgers & Fries, Austin Grill and Chicken Out.

Daventry sounds like a very convenient location for anyone who would be working at the Pentagon, or anywhere else up the 395 corridor for that matter.

By the way with the new FFX County Parkway extension will be a boost to Daventry owners.
