Arlington

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. 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.


Here are some of the not-to-miss places to check out in Arlington:

  • The Air Force Memorial honors the men and women of the United States Air Force and consists of three stainless steel spires nearly 300 feet high.
  • Arlington National Cemetery (including the Arlington House) is a stunning and somber shrine to the thousands of heroes who have died defending our country and our freedom around the world.
  • The Marine Corps War Memorial (commonly called Iwo Jima) is the largest cast bronze statue in the world and is dedicated to all Marines who have given their lives since 1775.
  • The Pentagon (including the National 9/11 Pentagon Memorial) is the headquarters for the United States Department of Defense. Tours require reservations.
  • Theodore Roosevelt Island is a wooded island sanctuary in honor of our 26th President, Teddy Roosevelt. Hiking, birding, biking, and more.
