Our kids love to go bowling so Bowl America is great place. Cleaner than other local bowling alleys. Food not too bad either.

A bit dated, but a friendly place and everything works. Ultimately, we understand this will be torn down and moved as part of renovations to downtown Falls Church. It's a fun place to go, it may not have all the jazzy features of some of...More
