Situated on the south bank of the Potomac River is the second smallest county in the United States. Arlington, a suburb of Washington, DC, was developed over approximately 25 square miles of the northern tip of Virginia. Tradition lives in the city’s historic homes, churches, and taverns beautifully preserved like a colonial sampler. The rich heritage and colorful past live also in the many specialty shops and art galleries housed in restored eighteenth- and nineteenth-century buildings. In this veritable melting pot of nationalities, excellent restaurants feature French, Greek, Afghan, Scottish, Italian, Creole, and (ah, yes!) traditional American colonial fare.
