Arlington may be just outside of the district, but with 11 stops on the DC Metro, it’s an ideal spot to explore the capital city. From the hip to the historic, Arlington’s own neighborhoods reward exploration. Visit MedStar Iceplex, the 20,000 square foot training center where you can watch the Washington Capitals practice free of charge. Arlington also offers high-end shopping and breweries as well as some of the nation’s best-known monuments and memorials like Arlington Cemetery and the Marine Corps War Memorial. Arlington is a step away from the District, but it’s still at the heart of the city.
