The Washington, DC region is great >> and it can be greater.


Watch Arlington's "Bikeswell"

Arlington produced a half-hour documentary about its bike planning efforts, and how it became one of the east coast's best cycling towns. Give it a watch.

Left: Watch the movie (you'll probably want to full-screen it).
Right: Nifty movie poster.

Two seconds in, Arlington proves it doesn't even know what Arlington is. (County, not "city.")

Arlington isn't a city correct.

But it is the densest jurisdiction in Va., has three subway lines running through it, is building two streetcar lines, and has the tallest buildings in Northern Va.

So functionally, it's a city since so much of the county is urban.
