Welcome to Arlington, Virginia
Arlington, Virginia, is known to many as the home to the Pentagon and Arlington National Cemetery, as well as the iconic Iwo Jima Memorial. It's also easy to get to for a quick day trip from Fairfax County. Situated on the south bank of the Potomac River, and directly across from Washington, DC, Arlington is roughly 26 square miles.
Arlington has a number of unique "urban villages," filled with eclectic dining, boutique shopping, historic buildings, and monumental views of the Nation's Capital. You can walk across the Key Bridge from Rosslyn to D.C.'s trendy Georgetown area, or browse the weekend arts market in Courthouse, frequent the hipster hot-spots in Clarendon, or try some of the best ethnic restaurants in the area on Columbia Pike.
