Why Should You Visit Arlington?

In the state of Virginia’s Northern Region, the city of Arlington may be found right over the Potomac River from Washington, DC. The well-known Arlington National Cemetery, which was initially constructed as an American military cemetery during the time of the Civil War, can be found on this land. Veterans who served their country in conflicts ranging from the American Revolution to the War on Terrorism in Iraq are laid to rest in the Arlington National Cemetery, which is located on the grounds of Arlington House, the home of Confederate General Robert E. Lee. The cemetery was established on the grounds of Arlington House. The resting place of former President John F. Kennedy is also located there, and it is denoted by the Eternal Flame. The Tomb of the Unknowns and the Iwo Jima Memorial are two further monuments that can be visited.

In addition, Arlington is home to The Pentagon, which serves as the headquarters for the United States Department of Defense.

Bikers can take advantage of the self-guided tour of Arlington, which spans 23 miles and includes 12 historical stops along the way. The W & O.D. Railroad Trail, which runs through the middle of Northern Virginia’s urban core as well as the surrounding countryside, is a wonderful spot to go hiking and biking.
