National History, Local Flavor

Located just across the Potomac River from Washington, D.C., the county of Arlington blends big city and sprawling suburban environments. Seamlessly linked to the nation's capital city by a convenient metro system, the county successfully maintains its own way of life, known locally as the "Arlington Way." An ideal base for any exploration of the capital and its surrounding areas, this small county boasts a remarkably diverse dining scene. With over a thousand restaurants, Arlington offers you a chance to experience all types of eateries, from hole-in-the-wall pubs to fine restaurants. With our custom trip planner, United States vacations can be built around trips to Arlington and other destinations in United States.

Where to stay in Arlington

If your trip to America's capital city doesn't include a big budget for accommodations, consider staying on the other side of the Potomac River in the county of Arlington. You’ll find a good selection of both expensive and economical hotels inside Washington, D.C., proper, but staying in Arlington county removes you from the big crowds and allows you to choose from a range of budget-friendly inns and motels. This area also offers extended-stay apartments, many located near the Ballston neighborhood's metro stop.
