The Friday blog series, "Welcome to Our Town", introduces you to different towns/areas in Maryland, Washington, D.C. and Virginia. When contemplating purchasing a new home, it's always good to do your research on the area. We hope this blog helps you to choose your forever home in a fun and exciting town
that you love...and when you find it, give us a call to discuss your financing options.
Welcome to Arlington, VA! This town sits directly across the Potomac River from Washington, D.C., in the Northern Virginia region. It is the site for the famous Arlington National Cemetery, established as an American military cemetery during the Civil War. President John F. Kennedy is also buried in this cemetery; his grave marked with the Eternal Flame.
Known as a very bike friendly area, bikers can enjoy a 23-mile self-guided tour of Arlington with 12 stops to learn history along the way. A great place to hike and bike is the W & O.D. Railroad Trail that traverses the urban heartland and countryside of Northern Virginia. Here you will find just a few of our favorite places and spaces!
