Info on Arlington VA
Are you new to the area or thinking about moving here or visiting for a short term stay? Almost Home Corporate Housing offers the following area information for the benefit of our potential Arlington VA corporate housing clients.
Arlington VA temporary housing residents in the area for business will find the business environment very positive. Its proximity to Washington D.C. makes it a natural solution to those wanting to be in close proximity to the administration of the country. The largest source of income for the workforce here is the Federal Government, who directly employs more than 17% of the county’s population. Many of the extended departments of the government like DARPA, DEA and even the DOD are housed in Arlington. The next strata of employers, not directly related to government, are the companies that serve and provide services to the Federal Government. Examples would be defense contractors like Boeing or companies that serve the population that work for the government, like Arlington Asset Investment.
Arlington VA corporate apartment residents are living in an area with a very intricate and rich history. Arlington traces its illustrious heritage to the Washington and Lee families, two names that have come to symbolize profound character. It was originally bestowed by the British monarchy to Thomas Fairfax, namesake of Fairfax county and city, part of which once included Arlington county. Arlington gets its name from Henry Bennet, the Earl of Arlington, whose name was on the land adjacent to the Potomac. In 1802, George Washington Parke Custis, Martha Washington's grandson, purchased this land. The entire estate was passed down until it found its way to Mary Anna Custis Lee, General Robert E Lee's wife.
Finally, in 1870, the City of Alexandria was separated from the County of Alexandria. Because of the confusion between the names that ensued, the county was renamed in 1920 to its present name, Arlington County.
Arlington corporate housing clients, if they are in the area long enough, will enjoy four distinct seasons, with temperate summers reaching a high of 89°F in July, followed by a Fall that ranges between 50 and 70°. Winters start mild and get cold, reaching the lowest point of approximately 36° in January. Spring temperatures resemble Fall's. May showers are the heaviest while January and February have the greatest snowfall.
