    I truly believe that the Netherlands cleaned there garage out and gifted this to us because it was easier than recycling. Great view of DC though

    Bit of a bizzare monument but it does have a great view of DC

    Very cool in the spring with the tulips surrounding it. Also a good view of the DC skyline.

    Best ground level view of DC - the tourbuses drive by here every day for the view, if you walk up near the Carillon, you'll get an even better one!

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.
