Groveton is an unincorporated community in Fairfax County, lying almost directly south of Washington D.C. by 11 miles. At only 3 miles south of Old Town Alexandria,
that historic area lies an easy bike ride awaylies from Groveton.
With sidewalks lining one side of the roads, Groveton proves to be a fairly walkable community. Because Route 1 runs through the heart of the neighborhood, all of your major shopping needs can be found while on foot. Because this remains such a major thoroughfare, however, this frequently congested four- to five-lane highway does not have bike lanes, so biking isn't recommended in this area.
The WMATA, the transit system that services Groveton, does have a Bike and Ride program that helps make riding more convenient, allowing riders to carry and store their bikes, even full-size ones, on the bus and trains.
Groveton is served by two different bus lines on the Washington Metro, with easy connections to both rail and different bus lines, making it easy and convenient to get around the entire D.C. metro area.
The closest Metro rail station sits only 2 miles away in Huntington,
and you can take the yellow line right into the heart of DC in 20 minutes for $3.05.
There exist many cab options in the Groveton area, including the GoGreen Cab Company or the award-winning Red Top Cab. In addition to the traditional taxicab services, newer options, such as Lyft and Uber, have become available, however, with a ride from Groveton to the White House running you at least $25, the Metro might be your best option.
