Careful urban planning decades ago helped shape Arlington into the comfortable, car-optional city that it is today. Many residents bike across the Potomac River to work in nearby Washington DC. The Metro runs underground rather than along highways, yielding stops in more convenient locations for residents. Each of the 11 Metro stations showcases the unique personality of the neighborhoods served—from the somber stop at Arlington National Cemetery that is roofed only by the Memorial Drive Bridge to the bustling Ballston Station where people watching is almost as much fun as grabbing a beer at a bar packed with political interns. There is no shortage of restaurants to choose from at any given stop either, with both American and international cuisine to satisfy even the most discerning palettes of the approximately 225,000 people that live in Arlington.
