What to Do in Arlington


  • Read a comprehensive guide for visitors in the Arlington Visitors Guide.
  • This StayArlington guide gives great advice on museums, shopping, and restaurants.
  • Rent a bike to get around locally with Capital Bike Share.
  • Need a dockless scooter to zip around?  Check out Lime, Jump, or Spin.  But read Arlington’s County’s rules on motorized scooters first!
  • Feel like taking a dip in a pool?  Visit one of Arlington’s public pools, or hit a cool rooftop pool in DC if that’s more your style.
  • Want to explore the museums and monuments on your own?  Here’s some useful information.
  • We sure hope you don’t need it, but in case you or your guest gets sick, here are some urgent care options.
  • Miss the bus?  You can always call a good old fashioned taxi!
  • If the outdoors is your jam, check out these nearby hikes.
  • Feel like shopping? We’ve got you covered with this info on nearby malls.
  • Doesn’t ice skating on a hot, June day sound awesome?  And maybe you’ll see the Caps at practice!
  • How about scaling some walls?  Earth Treks is a great climbing gym close to the hotel; a day pass is $25.
  • Are you a “Chopped” or “Top Chef” fan?  Then check out Cookology (in a new Arlington location) to book a cooking class or mystery basket challenge!
  • If you are coming a few days early or staying a few days after the conference, here are some fun things happening in the conference hotel neighborhood!
