Arlington, Virginia is a world-class urban community that was originally part of the 10-mile square parcel of
land surveyed in 1791 to be the Nation's Capital. It is the geographically smallest self-governing county in
the United States, occupying slightly less than 26 square miles. Known for its urban villages and transit-oriented
development, Arlington maintains a rich variety of stable neighborhoods, quality schools and enlightened land use.
Home to a number of federal agencies, including the Pentagon, Arlington stands out as one of America’s preeminent
places to live, visit and do business.
