  • This is a lovely monument in the middle of an island in the middle of the Potomac River. Access is from the Virginia side of the river near Rosslyn. It is a great chance to see wildlife and get a nice...  more »

  • Nice place for hiking or trail running. You can get their through the walking bridge from Virginia side or sail on a kayak from DC. Nice spot for fishing as well. The Roosevelt Monument was damaged by earthquake and fountain was not operational. The place doesn't have public restrooms.
  • A wonderful wild place in the urban world. Tucked between Rosslyn and Washington DC in the Potomac River. There is the memorial to Theodore Roosevelt and the trails on the island. Bicycles are not permitted on the island but multi use trail runs in front of it. Downstream is Alexandria, Washington Sailing Marina, Dyke Marsh and Mt. Vernon.
  • My favorite monument. Rugged nature with a hidden away mpnument that gives honor to what the man stood for, using his own words. I couldnt imagine a better way to memorialize the guy, and the place fills me with joy everytime I visit to see the nature, be reminded of some better times in our history, and leave rejuvinated by his words.
  • Great spot off the beaten path. Los of walking, but well worth it.
  • Beautiful, serene, almost surreal. A perfect place to wander by yourself or with a friend.

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.
