Arlington is a city in Virginia, located right across the Potomac River from Washington D.C., and it is part of the capital city’s metro area. Along with Arlington, several other cities help round out this area, including Annandale and Alexandria.
Arlington is home to many government buildings, including the Pentagon complex. Perhaps the best-known place to visit in Arlington besides the Pentagon is the Arlington National Cemetary, which is one of the most renowned war cemeteries in the world.
Along with the graves themselves, Arlington National Cemetary contains several memorials and tributes to past soldiers, including the Vietnam Memorial. Other memorials include the 9/11 Pentagon Memorial and the US Marine Corps War Memorial, which is styled after the famous picture of Marines raising the flag on Iwo Jima.
