Tysons: At A Glance

In Fairfax County, in between McLean and Vienna, the area of Tysons, Virginia, has been an office and shopping hub for decades, but it is rapidly transforming into a quintessential live-work-play community. 

Just 16 miles from Downtown Washington, Tysons is home to the corporate headquarters for several global companies, including Hilton, Capital One and Booz Allen Hamilton

But Tysons wasn’t always the bustling edge city and business district it is today. Until the mid-20th century, Tysons was a rural intersection with a few small businesses. In 1968, the Tysons Corner Center mall opened and brought a mix of retail, small businesses and foot traffic to the area. Since then, Tysons Corner, recently shortened to Tysons, has continued to flourish, attracting corporate and residential tenants. 

In 2014, WMATA's Silver Line, which connected several stops in Tysons and other Northern Virginia suburbs to the Metro system, opened for business. It brought with it even more development activity. As the Washington, D.C., metro area continues to grow, Tysons will remain a destination for visitors and locals alike.
