Arlington County welcomes thousands of visitors to the Washington, D.C. area from around the world each year. Arlington's Visitor Services have been carefully selected to provide the most useful information to visitors in the neighborhoods in which they are staying and visiting. The Arlington Convention and Visitors Service staff are here to make sure your visit to Arlington is enjoyable, fun and easy.
Arlington Visitor Services include:
- One of the first of its kind in the country, the Mobile Visitors Center is a dynamic addition to Arlington's scope of visitor services. From March through November each year, the staffed, clean-energy vehicle will be deployed near Metro stations in five of Arlington's urban villages to provide visitors with shopping, dining, sightseeing and entertainment information. In addition to picking up tourism materials and getting personalized guidance for exploring the capital area, guests can experience local sights and sounds on the center's high-definition screen; locate neighborhoods, Metro stops, shopping venues and other key sites on a large map display; or have a team member arrange dinner or theater reservations via a wireless laptop.
The Mobile Visitors Center will offer services in the following Arlington neighborhoods.*
Crystal City: Mondays from 1 p.m. to 7 p.m., 18th St. S. at S. Bell St. Ballston: Tuesdays from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m., N. Stuart St. at Fairfax Dr. Pentagon City: Wednesdays from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., S.
