Arlington’s many restaurants and bars, stately buildings, and prestigious war museums have made the city an attractive destination for tourists seeking history mixed with urban comforts and energy. Located just across the river from Washington D.C and covering an area of 26 square miles, Arlington is a history-filled and dynamic city. It is home to the Arlington National Cemetery, The Pentagon, and 200,000 educated residents who give the city a sophisticated and tasteful ambiance.
Though Arlington’s climate is typically mild, visitors should expect hot and humid weather if visiting in the summer months – particularly in July, when temperatures regularly exceed 30°C. Visitors to Arlington can fly into one of the two nearby airports, Reagan National Airport and Dulles International Airport, or alternatively they can travel by train or coach from one of the many east-coast cities that service the Washington area. Once in Arlington, visitors will find that walkable streets, bike lanes, and the extensive public transport system make the city an enjoyable city to explore. Arlington is in the Eastern Time Zone (GMT-5).
With countless historical landmarks, restaurants, shops, theatres and much more within the city’s borders, Arlington holidays have something for everyone. History buffs will find Arlington a goldmine with The Pentagon, the famous Iwo Jima Statue, and The Arlington Cemetery allowing one to experience the history that has shaped the modern world. The Arlington Cemetery in particular is an essential attraction for all visitors, with nearly 300,000 graves, including those of John F. Kennedy, William Taft, and the famous and symbolic “Tomb of the Unknown Soldier”. Shoppers can find excellent shopping at both Crystal City and the Fashion Centre at Pentagon City, whilst music lovers will find the legendary Birchmere Theatre a treat. For other excursions, Washington D.C is just a short metro ride away (or a picturesque walk over a bridge!).
