Steeped in American history, Arlington County is on the Potomac River in Northern Virginia and home to approximately 210,000 people. With Washington D.C. right across the river, there are many government headquarter buildings here, including the Department of Defense and the United States Drug Enforcement Administration. This factor contributes to the economy in a big way and has helped make it one of the highest-income counties in the country. Temperatures in Arlington fall right in the middle of the United States averages throughout the year.
Average commute time to work for residents is thirty minutes, which is only two minutes longer than the national average. Public transportation is available, including bus, commuter rail, and even a hybrid-electric taxi company called EnviroCAB.
