Situated in Northern Virginia on the southwestern bank of the Potomac River directly across from the nation’s capital, Arlington is a thriving hub of industry, government, education, and entertainment. The city, populated by 230,050 residents, is the fifth highest-income county in the U.S. by median family income and consistently has the lowest unemployment rate of any jurisdiction in the Commonwealth. It is also home to some of the nation’s most venerated landmarks, including the Pentagon, Arlington National Cemetery, and the Marine Corps Iwo Jima Memorial. Known for attracting a high concentration of young professionals, Arlington was named the fittest city in the nation in 2018 by The American College of Sports Medicine due to its health-centric residents, access to parks and public transportation in the city, and low smoking rates. Arlington is beloved by its residents for its strong economy, countless amenities, and perfect urban/suburban feel.
