Begin your half-day Arlington experience at the historic Arlington National Cemetery. Take a ride with Tourmobile Sightseeing(SM)where you can sit back, relax and listen to your tour guide weave interesting biographical sketches of the lives of the heroic men and women who are buried there.
Once you have completed the Arlington National Cemetery tour, hop on Metrorail and take a quick ride over to one of Arlington’s most bustling “urban villages,” Ballston! Here in the Ballston neighborhood, you’ll find endless places to grab a bite before checking out the Ballston Common Mall, where you can shop till you drop! The mall includes Macy’s numerous specialty shops, a 16-unit food court, and restaurants like Chevy’s Fresh Mex, Noodles & Company, Panera Bread, Rock Bottom Restaurant & Brewery and Union Jack’s British Pub. Ballston is also home to the 12 screen, stadium-style Regal Cinema and the Comedy Spot.
Last but not least, located right above the mall, you can check out one of the National Hockey League’s premier facilities, the Kettler Capitals Iceplex. Here, you can have fun and get a real workout by taking either figure skating, ice hockey or skating lessons. You never know, during the NHL season you just might catch the Washington Capitals practicing “live”!
