Across the Potomac River from Washington, D.C. you will find the county of Arlington. Arlington once belonged to the District of Colombia but was given back to the state of Virginia in the early 1800s by Congress. One of the most famous places in Arlington is the national cemetery were over 300,000 men and women, the majority from the armed services, are buried. The Pentagon is also located in Arlington along with the popular visited Marine Corps Iwo Jima memorial.

Some popular places include Bertucci?s, Sawatdee, and L&N Seafood Grill. Don?t hesitate to spend an entire day in Arlington because the area is wide and full of many exciting sites to see.
