Better pest control in Arlington
Originally part of the 10-square mile area allocated for the nation's capital, Arlington, Va., has evolved from a small town named Alexandria, into the second-largest principal city in the Washington metropolitan area. Just across the Potomac River from DC, Arlington is actually the smallest self-governing county in the US. Without any incorporated towns, Arlington County functions as its own city with countless unique qualities.
Nearly 60 distinct neighborhoods is one of these unique characteristics. Bluemont, in the center of Arlington, contains many retail stores and restaurants. While the Clarendon-Courthouse neighborhood, the epicenter of Arlington, is the place to be on a weekend evening, patronizing the countless restaurants, bars, and shops. And home of the well-known Farmers Market, Columbia Pike also hosts movie nights in its public parks. With dozens more civic districts, there's enough to keep you exploring every day of the year.
While small in geographical size, Arlington includes nearly 150 parks, 52 miles of trails, 13 community centers, and eight libraries. And don't forget about the nearly 500 restaurants in this 26-square mile metropolis. Enjoy a pizza and shop for authentic Italian foods at Italian Store. Enjoy Turkish cuisine at Yayla Bistro, or a Peruvian dish at Ell Pollo Rico. And for a more local taste, Carlyle's crab cakes just can't be beat.
From major universities to the Pentagon, there's no shortage of knowledge and history. Step back to the founding of this nation with a visit to George Washington's Mount Vernon and a walk through Old Town Alexandria. Pay your respects and stand in awe at Arlington National Cemetery and the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier. Further your history and experience by visiting the U.S. Marine Corps War Memorial and the Pentagon Memorial.
It doesn't stop there, though. While in Arlington, you're just minutes away from the Peterson's House, where President Lincoln died, as well as Lincoln's cottage. Combining history with architecture, Tudor Place Historic House & Garden, as well as Woodrow Wilson's House, is just around the corner. And all of this in addition to countless parades, events, and gatherings throughout the year. June brings the Columbia Pike Blues Festival, August the county fair, and September the Rosslyn Jazz Fest; there's no shortage of events in Arlington.
Offering a complete view of the history and beauty Arlington has to offer, The Observation Deck at CEB Tower is nearly 400 feet high with 360_ views. If heights aren't your thing, the Mount Vernon Trail will give you equally impressive views of the monuments. Continuing with fresh air and unique perspectives, Theodore Roosevelt Island Park boasts almost 90 acres of walking trails, situated right in the center of the Potomac River. And if you want to get up closer, the National Mall is just a quick Metro ride away.
Rich with history and culture, Arlington is a place like no other. But with hot and humid summers, no one really wants to be stuck outside spraying for bugs. Or worse, stuck inside fighting for the AC unit with some unwanted guests. Stop the fighting. LawnStarter is the area's choice for professional pest control services.
