Across the Potomac River from Washington , Arlington is famous for its large military cemetery. Originally known as Alexandria County, Arlington and the neighboring city of Alexandria were part of the District of Columbia from 1801-1847. Five major business districts – Crystal City, Pentagon City, Rosslyn, Ballston, & Courthouse – give it a distinct multi-peaked skyline, easily appreciated from airplanes landing at Arlington's Washington National Airport.
