A Silver Lining: Tysons Corner
The latest edition to the Metro system brings even more promise to an already developing area in the DMV. Tysons Corner is a microcosm of the expansion happening throughout the McLean area foreshadows more development as the silver line continues to grow. If you’re looking for something new to do this weekend, or for some good retail therapy, go to Tysons Corner. It’s one of the must-see stops on the newly operational silver line and it sure feels like it.
The sparkly platform of the metro leads to the escalators, which are decked out with lights so you can see your feet, even at night. A bridge with modern glass windows leads out of the station, and over the highway to the consumer paradise of Tyson’s corner.
You will arrive at a beautiful outdoor space boasting an urban pirate ship playground and a tempting Shake Shack. Inside, the mall presents over 100 shops. Attached is an AMC movie theater for shoppers who want to relax and sit down in front of a big screen after a full day. A variety of restaurants, such as Tuscany-themed Brio, and other standard mall eateries like Panera Bread and California Pizza Kitchen give shoppers a place to relax and grab a bite. In the center of the mall is Wasabi, a new kind of restaurant that serves sushi and other dishes from a conveyor belt that circles a booth-style dining area.
Tysons Corner Mall will be sure to satisfy shoppers and locals as the area continues to economically expand.
