Depart Your Apartment in Arlington for a Relaxing Day at Potomac Overlook Regional Park

Between news updates, social media notifications, and the occasional mobile game, the average person spends plenty of time on their phone—not to mention the time spent working or otherwise browsing on a laptop or desktop computer. With so much screen time, it’s only natural to want a bit of time outside the four walls of your apartment for rent in Arlington, VA.

Potomac Overlook Regional Park will give you (and your eyes) that well-deserved break with that connection to nature that you crave. Stop by for a workout in the great outdoors or set out on a hike with your family or dog over the 67 acres that make up the park. Or, visit their educational and demonstration gardens to learn about the plants, insects, and animals that make up the natural world around us. 

Your stress relief doesn’t need to end after a day at the park either. Head to the Potomac Overlook website to download coloring pages featuring Twiggy the barred owl, Sugar and Spice the corn snakes, and Squeaker the red shouldered hawk; research shows that coloring promotes mindfulness, letting you escape from your screen-filled daily life a little bit longer.
