Arlington, VA was ranked the wealthiest and most highly-educated community in the United States. Set right on the edge of Washington, this growing city is full of those who want the DC culture without all the bustle of the capital city. But Arlington has many sites of its own.
Head to Arlington National Cemetery, the military cemetery holding the remains of several presidents and more than 400,000 members of the armed forces, as well as the constantly guarded Tomb of the Unknown Soldier.
Check out the DEA Museum to learn about drugs, addiction, and what the DEA does. Dark Star Park is a great outdoor option. The unique sculptures serve as a monument to the day the land was first purchased by William Ross in 1860. Hang out for an afternoon at Gravelly Point, a waterfront park so close to Reagan National Airport that you can watch the planes fly right above your head.
Columbia Pike is the best place to be for food from every corner of the earth, while Courthouse is a good stop for trendy bars. Head to Clarendon for unique shops, or for upscale stores, head to the malls at Pentagon City or Crystal City. Right on DC’s metro line, Arlington also has easy access to all the museums, monuments, and fun of the capital city. Locals in Arlington tend to be young professionals or high-powered DC professionals.
The best time to visit is in the spring or fall. Catch the right week in spring for the Cherry Blossoms in DC, but watch out for the large crowds. Summers in the area can be incredibly humid, so best not to plan your trip then.
