Quick Guide to Tysons
Tracing its roots back to postmaster William Tyson, Tysons, Virginia started off being known as Peach Grove. In the 1960s, it boomed with the opening of Tysons Corner Mall, which was then the largest enclosed shopping center in the world. More recently, large corporations have move into the area, including Capital One, Hilton and Freddie Mac. It has transformed into a typical edge city, near both Washington DC and Arlington, Virginia.
As with all edge cities, transportation is at the heart of Tysons. In the next few decades, massive urban development is planned, with 75% of building to be within 0.5 miles of a metro station. We are happy to provide expanded bus service connecting Tysons with DC, NYC, NJ and other Virginia locations.
