Did you know that bowling is the number one participation sport in America?

The industry makes approximately six million dollars every year, and the United States Bowling Congress has over 2.5 million members.

If you would like to enjoy a night of bowling, the best alleys near our Kingstowne apartments include:

Fort Belvoir Bowling Center

The Fort Belvoir Bowling Center, located a 14-minute drive away, is where friends meet for a night of fun. It offers state-of-the-art lanes featuring jumbo screens and a cosmic and laser system you have to see to believe. Open bowling is available daily, and it costs three or four dollars a game depending on the time. 

Inside the onsite Vortex Grill, the chefs create a menu full of diverse flavor profiles. Options include bison burgers and barbecue pork baked potatoes. 

AMF Marlow Heights Lanes

Marlow Heights Lanes offers a bowling, dining, and nightlife experience that’s unlike any other. It boasts that its forty lanes are the hippest around, and the video walls show everything from music videos to live sporting events. Black lights enhance the experience, and the soft lounge seats are where visitors can enjoy laneside service. The menu includes a Monster burger which pairs well with a pint of local craft beer. 

After bowling, visit the arcade. It’s where you’ll find an array of classic games including Mario Kart and Pac-Man. AMF Marlow Heights Lanes is a 21-minute drive away.

Lucky Strike (25 minute drive)

Nestled in the heart of D.C.’s Chinatown neighborhood, Lucky Strike offers a chic setting where groups gather for a night on the town. It opened in 2003, and has become a leader in the boutique bowling industry. The lanes are modern and sleek and feature neon lighting and lounge seating.

In the kitchen, the chefs make from-scratch dishes using locally sourced ingredients. Choices include chicken tinga quesadillas, surf & turf, and Margherita pizzas. Lucky Strike is a 25-minute drive from our apartments.

Bowling is just one of the activities that you can enjoy as a resident of our apartments in Alexandria, VA. To call our community home, please contact us. We would love for you to see The Elms at Kingstowne firsthand.
