    Pet-friendly park. Arrive early to beat the crowds. Not accessible by public transit is a fail. Picnic tables near the visitor center and a snack bar window make it perfect to bring the dog. 🐶🍁🍃🍂

    This park is the best! Obey the signs please. Do not drown. We live near the park and hear the sirens way too often.

    Best place to snap a sunrise shot of the falls is the Virginia side! Such gorgeous nature so close to civilization!

    Perfect place for hiking and/or relaxing...go early...$5 for entrance and cash is quicker...Instead bringing lunch try BBQ, it is more fun...restrooms are miserable but who cares.

    You might as well get a year-long parking pass. It's $20, and goes to a good cause! You'll get your money's worth in 4 visits.

    Incredibly beautiful park ~20min from downtown Arlington. Busy, but great trails lining the river which are not to be missed. ~1.5-2hr for a hike along the water, looping back to the Visitor Center
