Arlington Economic Development, an organization committed to helping Arlington thrive as an economically vital, competitive and sustainable community, describes what the area is like:

“Whether you’re seeking swift access to the nation’s capital or to countries around the world, Arlington, VA is an East Coast hub like no other on the map. Renowned for its proximity to Washington, D.C. and the entire D.C. metro region, this 26 square mile walkable, urban market is home to some of the country’s most influential businesses, like Amazon, Microsoft and Nestlé. What’s more, it is located just minutes from the power and influence of Capitol Hill, is only an Amtrak ride from key markets like New York City, Philadelphia and Boston, and offers nonstop flights to business centers across the globe via Arlington’s own Reagan National Airport, nearby Washington Dulles International Airport and Baltimore/Washington International Airport. Arlington makes it easy to get where you need to be and even easier to come home again.”
