Located just minutes from the nation's capital in Arlington, and a stop on the Yellow and Blue lines of the region’s Metro system, Fashion Centre is one of the most popular shopping and tourist destinations in the Washington, D.C. region. The lineup of stores and restaurants includes some of the most sought after names in retail. Avenues of fashion and boulevards of style await, including Nordstrom, Macy’s, Apple, Coach, Michael Kors, Tourneau and Garrett Popcorn Shops. The annual October Mosaic International Showcase is a unique event that celebrates the diversity of its shopper population and invites people to submerge into various cultures with food samples, live musical performances from neighboring dance groups, arts and crafts and more.
Arlington’s Pentagon City neighborhood is also home to two American treasures: the National 9/11 Pentagon Memorial, honoring the 184 people who died there during the Sept. 11, 2001 terrorist attack, and the Air Force Memorial, commemorating the service and sacrifices of the men and women of the United States Air Force. Visitors can also explore the Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) Museum and Visitors Center, educating about the history of drugs, drug addiction and drug law enforcement in the United States through engaging and state-of-the-art exhibits, displays, interactive stations and outreach.
