Go sailing or jog by the water then cross the Potomac to enjoy all the arts and entertainment that Washington DC has to offer
Get up early and head to the water where you can cycle along miles of trails running alongside the Potomac River. As you pass Arlington Memorial Bridge, look across the river, taking in views of the nation’s capital and the Lincoln Memorial. Pedal or jog further along the Potomac Heritage Trail and look over to Theodore Roosevelt Island as you plan future picnics for sunny days. Come back through the acres of green space that surrounds Arlington National Cemetery.
Save time to explore the neighborhoods of Arlington. Sit and read over coffee in one of Clarendon’s cafés, like Boccato Gelato & Espresso, or feast on tacos at Fuego Cocina y Tequileria, lingering in the evening for tequila tasting at the bar. Go shopping at The Village at Shirlington where you can pick up a new pair of jeans, then eat at restaurants, listen to live music, catch a show at the theater, or check out events like music or beer festivals.
The Metro will take you across the water and drop you directly in the heart of the nation’s capital in less than 10 minutes. Explore museums and galleries along The Mall, heading towards Capitol Hill. Walk in the gardens around The White House, go out for drinks in Adams Morgan, or shop in charming Georgetown. Of course you can’t live in Arlington without going on a tour of the Pentagon before you leave, marvelling at the building's unique architecture from the central courtyard.
