Arlington, Virginia | National History
Originally part of the “10 miles square” surveyed in 1791 to be the Nation's Capital, Arlington offers views of Washington, D.C. and the Potomac River that are simply beyond compare. And with more than 40 hotels offering rates averaging 20 percent lower than those in downtown D.C., it’s an easy choice for vacationers seeking the perfect combination of convenience and value.
With national treasures like Arlington National Cemetery; Arlington House, The Robert E. Lee Memorial; the Marine Corps War Memorial; the Air Force Memorial; and the National 9/11 Pentagon?Memorial, Arlington’s a wonderful place to honor and remember America’s past. And with five bridges connecting to the District of Columbia, Arlington’s just a short walk or quick Metro ride to the National Mall, Smithsonian Museums and other major attractions, plus major-league football, baseball, basketball, hockey and soccer.
There are countless other ways to enjoy yourself in Arlington, once you’ve seen the sights. Whether it’s an all-American feast or a sampling of our incredible array of international cuisines, sidewalk dining is a favorite pastime much of the year. You’ll also find abundant shopping at Fashion Centre at Pentagon City, Market Common Clarendon, Crystal City Shops and local boutiques.
