Arlington, Virginia is site for the famous Arlington National Cemetery, established during the Civil War as an American military cemetery but an Arlington vacation can include much more. If you enjoy biking, why not try the Arlington Virginia 23-mile self-guided tour that includes 12 educational stops along the way. You can also take a relaxing hike on the Arlington Virginia W& O.D. Railroad Trail that will wind you through both the urban areas and the countryside of Northern Virginia.
If you need to pick up a new pair of sneakers after your hike through the Railroad Trail or your visit to the Arlington Cemetery, visit the Fashion Centre at Pentagon City, a four-story mall boasting 130 upscale stores, a sunlit food court, and six movie theatres. After you shopped till you dropped, eat out at an Arlington restaurant specializing in seafood, such as RT's Seafood Kitchen with a selection of fresh seafood, sandwiches, salads, Po' Boys, as well as Cajun and Creole specialties.

SKYLINE DRIVE... The Skyline Drive runs 105 miles north and south along the crest of the Blue Ridge Mountains in Shenandoah National Park and is the only public road through the park. You can enter Shenandoah at four places: Front Royal near Rt. 66 and 340, Thornton Gap at Rt. 211, Swift Run Gap at Rt. 33, and Rockfish Gap at Rt. 64 and Rt. 250 (also the northern entrance to the Blue Ridge Parkway). It takes about three hours to travel the entire length of the park on a clear day.
As you travel along Skyline Drive you will notice mileposts on the west side (right side if you are traveling south) of the road. These posts help you find your way through the park and help you locate areas of interest. The mileposts begin with 0.0 at Front Royal and continue to 105 at the southern end of the park.
The speed limit is 35 mph, so you can roll down your windows, feel the breeze and experience every curve and turn of this beautiful drive. There are 75 overlooks that offer stunning views of the Shenandoah Valley to the west or the rolling Piedmont to the east. The park purposely leaves the roadsides unmowed so wildflowers put on a show all year long.
