The climate of Arlington (Virginia - United States of America)
Arlington is a county in Virginia. This region was donated to Washington DC as a census designated place. However, in 1846, Congress returned the land donated by Virginia due to issues involving Congressional representation and the abolition of slavery. Arlington is located on the banks of the Potomac River, across this the river Washington is located. Two famous attractions can be admired here: the Pentagon and Arlington Cemetery. The Pentagon is the headquarters of the United States Department of Defense. This characteristic five sided polygon was built here during WWII and has been the center of the United States forces ever since. Arlington Cemetery is one of the most important and biggest military cemeteries in the United States. More than 300,000 people are buried here, including former president John F. Kennedy.
