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.
Start off your visit on the 1st (Sat): get to know the fascinating history of The Tomb of the Unknown Soldier and then explore the different monuments and memorials at Arlington National Cemetery.

For other places to visit, maps, where to stay, and other tourist information, go to the Arlington tour itinerary builder app.

Philadelphia to Arlington is an approximately 3-hour car ride. You can also do a combination of train and subway; or fly. Expect a daytime high around 76°F in May, and nighttime lows around 58°F. Cap off your sightseeing on the 1st (Sat) early enough to go by car back home.

Old Dominion
The home of the first permanent English colony in the New World, Virginia is a prime holiday destination for those looking to immerse themselves in American heritage. Proud of its colorful history, distinct culture, and southern drawl, Virginians see their state as the place where the imaginary line between the north and the south is drawn. With scenic beauties as diverse as its people, Virginia is a land of rolling hills, rugged mountains, lush valleys, dense forests, and secluded beaches along picturesque bays. Bordered on the east by the Atlantic and the west by the Appalachian Mountains, with rolling farmland in the middle, the state offers countless places to visit for history buffs, nature lovers, and passionate foodies.
