Things to Do

It's been said that Arlington is the place where history and fun intersect. We've been part of Washington's history since the very beginning: Arlington was once part of the original Federal City designed by Pierre L'Enfant.

And while we’re proud to have some of our nation's most impressive and world-renowned monuments and memorials, you'll also find attractions here with an Arlington edge: different, intriguing, off-the-beaten-path and perhaps unexpected. Arlington is the ideal hub for visiting the Washington region. Many of the region's most popular attractions are conveniently accessible by the Metro subway system, and virtually all of Arlington's 43 hotels are just minutes from one of 11 Metro stations in the County. And Arlington is super-walkable: bike paths, sidewalks and pedestrian-friendly bridges mean you can park your car and head out on foot.
