    Arlington is a suburb of DC and a big military town. The National Cemetery and the Pentagon are here. There's lots of brass walking around, and you can't throw a stone without hitting some General's aid.

    Aside from the river you would be hard-pressed to know when Arlington begins and Washington ends. With easy access to the metro it is fully integrated into DC. There are plenty of restaurants and bars between Rosslyn and Balston Metro. Arlington is also home to a large community of Bolivian, where you can find some of the better authentic Bolivian food in the U.S.

    Spectacular view of our fallen heroes of past wars, plus JFK grave, and of course the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier.

    A city that is rich in history that once belongs as part of the land that was given to our county, now given back to Virginia. In its boarders house the Pentagon, Marine Corp Memorial, and Arlington Cemetery. Disability Access within the city call the VC to request a parking pass, so you’re able to park at meters with no charge.

    Arlington, Virginia is a combination of residential areas. historic sites, and businesses. Time in Arlington should be part of any first visit to Washington, DC. Be sure to spend time at Arlington National Cemetery, visit one of many shopping areas, and walk around various neighborhoods. Parts of Arlington are easily reached from Washington via public transportation.

    Very interesting history here, from the Civil War onwards. The formality of the ceremony at the Tomb f the Unknown Solider. The mournfulness of the Kennedy graves. A lot of history and deep American cultural influences.

    Was here when they buried my dear friend Officer Denise Smith. Killed in the line of Duty. Gave her life on a Domestic Violence call. May you rest in peace my friend.

Description

Considering it was once part of Washington DC – and then returned to the state of Virginia for political reasons – it's no surprise that government is the biggest action happening in Arlington. Government also holds the biggest attractions in this miniature city-county: the Arlington National Cemetery, the Pentagon, and several war memorials all pull DC tourists into Virginia. To lighten the mood ... read more
after those visits, go ice skating, check out a comedy show or catch a Shakespeare play at the Synetic Theater at Crystal City. Because the city is so compact – just 26 square miles – many visitors find it easiest to get around on public transit or by cab, rather than battling traffic or paying for parking.
