Situated across the Potomac River from Washington DC, Arlington offers the best of all worlds — quick access to all the amenities of the Nation’s Capital and a lively urban center all it’s own. All four of the county’s high schools annually rank among the top one percent nationally. Arlington’s healthy mix of commercial and residential development provides a strong tax base that helps keep the property tax rate the lowest of any major Northern Virginia jurisdiction. With more private office space than downtown Boston, Dallas, Denver or Los Angeles, Arlington has an estimated 200,300 jobs, and the lowest unemployment rate in the state. Arlington attracts major employers to the county, supports its award-winning schools, and has some of the best people and dog parks in the country. Within a convenient 26 square mile area you have access to wonderful libraries, diverse neighborhoods, unrivaled public transportation, and a variety of neighborhoods to fit all needs. Old and young, familes and singles — all mix it up in Arlington.
