Area Information:

The following information is from Stay Arlington, the Arlington Convention and Visitors Service website:

"Ask someone to describe Arlington in one word, and you'll get a variety of responses: urban, exciting, hip and accessible are the obvious ones. Throw in hospitable and charming, add in easy and affordable, and you’ll have a pretty clear picture of all that Arlington has to offer."

"In addition to our many historical attractions, Arlington offers visitors first-class shopping, diverse dining and an eclectic local arts and entertainment scene. Here, you can discover American treasures including Arlington National Cemetery, the Marine Corps War Memorial (Iwo Jima), the Air Force Memorial and The National 9/11 Pentagon Memorial. And when you’re done, you can experience Arlington’s charming restaurants and cafes, funky boutiques, nationally-renowned theater and intimate live music venues. Plus, we're just minutes by Metro or car to the National Mall and other regional attractions."

"When you stay in Arlington's walkable, Metro-centered "urban villages," you get the best of everything when it comes to national historic attractions, local culture and fun!"
