Arlington is a huge area just outside of DC that includes massive government offices in the Pentagon, major tourist and historical draws such as Arlington National Cemetery and the Iwo Jima Marine Corps Monument, the area's only dense area of high-rise office buildings in Crystal City and Rosslyn, famous shopping in Pentagon City and Clarendon, and renown nightlife in Ballston. All of these areas have undergone massive development and growth with the establishment of the DC Metro.

Arlington is actually a county with numerous distinct neighborhoods, but no true cities. The entire county was once part of the Capitol City of Washington, but was retro-ceded back to Virginia in 1846. Today it is the smallest county in Virgina in terms of land area, as well as the smallest self-governing county in the United States.

    So many great memorials to see, and you did an excellent job of discussing those, as well as the pictures enhance the pages to read. Maybe we can get there soon.

    I lived in Arlington years ago. Is the Afghan Restaurant called the Kabul Karavan still there?
