The nation’s capital is at your fingertips from the west bank of the Potomac.
- Public Transportation
Directly across the Potomac River from Washington, D.C., Arlington is less a suburb than an extension of the nation’s capital. It’s the home of the Pentagon, Arlington National Cemetery, and Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport, with Potomac Park offering beautiful views across the river to the National Mall.
The community provides a wider range of living options than most of Washington proper, and has long been a popular home base for government employees as well as military personnel. A major reason for Arlington’s popularity is that there is so much to do: Washington may be packed with monuments, museums, and other sightseeing landmarks, but Arlington holds the advantage when it comes to the more day-to-day shopping, dining, entertainment, and nightlife.
You’ll have several options for getting around town or into D.C., whether you choose to drive, take the Metro, or ride your bike -- Arlington has earned a silver rating from the League of American Bicyclists.
