Arlington County, Virginia Travel Guide

Complete Vacation, Recreation and Tourism Information

Arlington County, a suburb of Washington, D.C., sprawls out alongside the opposite bank of the Potomac River, connected to the nation's capital by four big and busy bridges. At just under 26 square miles, the county is the third smallest in the U.S. but densely packed with history, home also to important governmental facilities like the Pentagon and a long list of memorials. An array of ethnically diverse restaurants, a changing line-up of live music at spots like the restored State Theatre and a multitude of shops compliment visits to this area's historic sites.

Arlington National Cemetery, where more than 260,000 U.S. veterans from every war are buried is easily one of the county's highlights, sweeping in peaceful splendor over several hundred acres of grave-dotted lawn. Millions visit the Tomb of the Unknowns and the site where former President John F. Kennedy is interred, best-known for the eternal flame which flickers in his honor.  Look near the main entrance for The Women in Military Service for America Memorial, and Arlington House, the one-time home of Robert E. Lee, which is also located on the cemetery grounds (near the Eternal Flame), along with a further list of memorials which honor America's fallen. At the north edge of the cemetery find the iconic statue of the U.S. Marine Corps troops raising a flag on Iwo Jima (U.S. Marine Corps War Memorial), near the Netherlands Carillion, where visitors can catch a scheduled carillion performance during summer months.

Outdoor fun awaits on Theodore Roosevelt Island, an 88-acre park and monument to the eponymous 26th U.S. president. Located in the Potomac River between Arlington and Washington, D.C., the island has numerous trails open to joggers and walkers. Other trails include the 18-mile Mount Vernon Trail (which runs along George Washington Memorial Parkway to Mount Vernon) and the North Potomac Heritage Trail, which follows the Virginia side of the Potomac past streams and wilderness.

Arlington County is located in Northern Virginia, less than five miles from Washington, D.C. across the Potomac River between I-66 and I-495.
