Arlington Vacation Packages
Arlington offers convenient access to the nation's capital while radiating its own unique cultural identity. This northwest Virginia county is noted for its historical significance, diverse attractions and central location.
Arlington is composed of nine urban villages, each with small-town appeal. Enjoy local cuisine in Clarendon, a neighborhood famous for its eateries, or exciting nightlife in Crystal City, Arlington’s downtown area. Columbia Pike features the county’s largest concentration of ethnic restaurants. Pentagon City is ideal for a shopping spree and Rosslyn offers unparalleled views of the Washington, D.C. monuments.
Plan a visit to Arlington Cemetery, the final resting place of more than 400,000 servicemen and women. As you walk through the picturesque 624 acres (252.5 hectares), look for the Changing of the Guard at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, a monument dedicated to the nameless men and women who died fighting for the United States.
View the US Marine Corps War Memorial at the northern end of the cemetery. Erected to honor Marines who have given their lives in the defense of the U.S since 1775, it is one of the area’s most popular attractions. At the southern tip of Arlington Cemetery, see the Air Force Memorial, a towering structure honoring the service and sacrifice of the men and women of the U.S. Air Force.
Take a guided tour of the Pentagon for a unique glimpse into the headquarters of the Department of Defense. Make your reservations at least two weeks in advance.
Known for its bike-friendly transportation system, Arlington and the surrounding area offer 50 miles (80.5 kilometers) of off-road trails. Take the family on the city’s self-guided biking tour to learn more about the region’s history.
Washington, D.C. is easily reachable by car, bike or metro. Dulles International Airport is 22 miles (35.4 kilometers) from Arlington with convenient access via the metro.
