Arlington is a county of approximately 210,000 residents in the Commonwealth of Virginia. It's located directly across the Potomac River, just southwest of Washington D.C. Arlington was formerly part of the District of Columbia. The land now composing Arlington County was retroceded to Virginia on July 9, 1846. It was called Alexandria County from that date until March 16, 1920, when an act of the General Assembly changed its name to Arlington County. Although it is organized politically as a county in Virginia, it's considered a central city of the Washington metropolitan area, along with the adjacent cities of Washington D.C. and Alexandria, Virginia. In 2005, Arlington was ranked first among "walkable cities" in the U.S. by the American Podiatric Medical Association. One of the most well-known attractions in the city is the Arlington National Cemetery, which includes the John F. Kennedy Gravesite and the Tomb of the Unknowns. Other attractions include Arlington House and the Robert E. Lee Memorial, the Arlington Historical Museum and the Arlington Arts Center. Walking tours are available and the city offers over 75 miles of hiking and biking trails and 1100 acres of park and open space. The Washington and Old Dominion Trail is a 100-foot wide park, one of the skinniest in Virginia, but also one of the longest at 45 miles in length.

Arlington Weather & Climate

Northeast Virginia's climate is classified as mild, mid-latitude, with a subcategory of humid subtropical. Northeast Virginia generally has mild winters with no dry season and hot summers. Hurricanes make the coastal areas of Virginia vulnerable, but it's rare for a major hurricane to threaten the Virginia coast as hurricanes that far north tend to weaken due to cooler coast waters and increasingly westerly winds. Heavy rain from tropical cyclones are possible, however. Thunderstorms are an occasional concern with the state averaging anywhere from 30-50 days of thunderstorm activity annually, but the highest area of occurrence is towards the west.
