Guide to Tysons Corner, VA
Tyson’s Corner is an unincorporated community in Fairfax County, Virginia. The houses here are as varied as its residents and restaurants. This neighborhood is more than its mall and office parks, but allows easy access to Arlington and Washington, DC and eventually Dulles Airport with its new Silver Metro line.
Situated Between Vienna & McLean
Tyson’s Corner is roughly restricted by Electric Avenue to the south, Westwood Country Club and a portion of Wolftrap Creek to the west, the Dulles Access Road to the north, and Route 650 to the east. This census-designated place is between the community of McLean and the town of Vienna. Falls Church and later downtown Arlington are further out towards the southeast, Dunn Loring, West Falls Church, Merrifield, and Mantua are to the south, and Odrick’s Corner and finally the Potomac River are to the north.
Peach Grove to William Tyson
Originally named Peach Grove, this area received the designation Tyson’s Crossroads after the Civil War. After the war, Lawrence Foster sold a tract of his land to William Tyson. Tyson, a Maryland native, served as a postmaster of the now discontinued Peach Grove Post Office. As recently as the 1950’s, Tyson’s Corner was a quiet, rural intersection with a few small stores. In 1963, the Tyson’s area moved from a country crossroads to a giant commercial urban area with the advantage of awarding contracts at the interchange of Route 123 and Route 7. One of the most important additions at the time was Tyson’s Corner Center.
Four Metro Stations
Depending on where you decide to commute from, you might be closer to one station then the other. Towards the west is Spring Hill located on its namesake Road, south near the Pike Plaza is the Greensboro Metro station. Across the street from its center, Tyson’s Corner dominates most of the traffic, while further east is the McLean station. All four stations run on the Silver line and easily connect Tyson’s by rail with Reston, Arlington, and Washington, DC. Further extension of the line west to Washington Dulles International Airport is projected for completion in 2018.
Mostly Condos & Townhouses
Keep close attention to the housing options in Tyson’s Corner. Although there aren’t many housing developments in some areas, there are plenty spattered around Tyson’s Corner Center. Branching out of the center you can find some single-family homes, a couple of new high-end developments beyond Route 267, and more quiet streets lined with row houses, and split-level homes near the south.
Tyson’s Corner Center & Nearby Restaurants
Tyson’s Corner Center is a massive mall that opened in 1968, becoming one of the first fully enclosed, climate-controlled shopping malls in the Washington metropolitan area.

Bean, Macy’s, Microsoft, American Girl, and Apple—the first one built in the world. A few of the restaurants located within the center are Seasons 52, Brio Tuscan Grille, Gordon Biersch, California Pizza Kitchen, and Wasabi.
Tyson’s Galleria is an overlooked, upscale three-level mall located across the street from Tyson’s Corner Center. This shopping mall features high-end boutiques and department stores, plus dining options. However, if you’re looking for dining options beyond the mall check out Chef Geoff’s Tyson Corner. This consistently good mini-chain is reasonably pricy but offers a delicious bacon bar with some upscale dishes like the Madras Curry Chicken and the Jumbo Lump Crabcake. A wonderfully hidden gem of Tyson’s is Shamshiry, located on Westwood Center Drive. This Middle Eastern restaurant is tucked away in an office park and produces some of the best Iranian cuisine in the area with classics like barg kebabs and the fluffiest of rice dishes with naan.
Tyson’s Corner offers a small amount of acres set aside for parks and other recreational activities. However, hovering on the northwestern edge of the neighborhood is Wolf Trap. This parks partnership between the National Park Service and the non-profit Wolf Trap Foundation for the Performing Arts allows offers of both natural and cultural resources. Its 7,000-seat theater is its main tourist attraction as it produces performing arts, orchestras, live music, and other events. The park also features kid-friendly shows at the Children’s Theatre in the Woods, and adjacent to that is Meadow Pavilion. There are also tour guides by rangers, hikes, summer programs, and junior ranger days.
Westwood Country Club is located on Maple Avenue and separates Tyson’s from Vienna. This fabulous golf course provides a driving range, chipping and putting greens, a pool, tennis courts, banquet facilities, steam rooms, dining rooms, and a ballroom great for special events like reunions and weddings. Some urban parks located throughout the area include Raglan Road Park, Wildwood Park, Heritage Resource Park, Springlake Park, and Freedom Hill Park.
Tyson’s Corner is a historic area tucked away between Vienna and Arlington. Its known for its mall and office parks, but its recent, radical change from car centric to pedestrian friendly city allows a terrific balance for homeowners to consider when looking into real estate in Northern Virginia.
