Start your day in Arlington, Va., and Washington, D.C., by enjoying a Tourmobile Sightseeing(SM)American Heritage Tour. Beginning at Arlington National Cemetery, you’ll enjoy monuments and museums, plus history past and history in the making. Tourmobile narrators will give you information on exhibits, architecture and the people who inspired it all. Stop where you want, stay as long as you’d like, then reboard and ride to another historic site.
After a morning exploring our Nation’s Capital, venture from Arlington National Cemetery by Metrorail to lunch at the Fashion Centre at Pentagon City, featuring Nordstrom, Macy’s and nearly 170 other restaurant and shopping choices. Next door you’ll also find Pentagon Row, with more than 45 restaurants and shops.
From Pentagon City shopping you’re just a short walk to Arlington’s two newest memorials: the stunning, 300-foot high Air Force Memorial, and the touching site of the Pentagon Memorial, honoring those lost there on September 11, 2001. If you’re still up for more sightseeing, you can cross the street and be fascinated by the history of American drug enforcement at the Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) Museum and Visitors Center.
And when you’re ready for evening fun, you’ll find an amazing array of diverse restaurants and shops in one of Arlington’s favorite “urban villages,” Shirlington. Not only can you choose from more than 20 fantastic dining options – most with charming outdoor seating much of the year – but you can also experience Tony Award® winning performances at Signature Theatre before returning to your choice of one of Arlington’s more than 40 hotels.
