From the apartment, you may walk across the picturesque Key Bridge in 10 minutes or so to D.C.'s trendy Georgetown neighborhood of ethnic restaurants, lively bars and busy nightlife. Everything is at your fingertips here -- it's ultra convenient for touring Washington D.C. and surrounding areas. Also in walking distance is Theodore Roosevelt Island, an 88.5-acre nature preserve in the Potomac crisscrossed by nature trails and boardwalk that transports you from the urban environment.

This apartment overlooks the Iwo Jima Monument National Park -- home to the huge sculpture by Felix de Weldon based on the iconic photo Raising the Flag, taken during the Battle of Iwo Jima by Associated Press photographer Joe Rosenthal. The property also lies close to jogging and biking trails along the Potomac, trendy shopping in nearby Clarendon and acclaimed restaurants. You may want to try the successor to Ray's Hell Burger, where President Obama treated then-Russian President Dmitry Medvedev to a fat, juicy sampling of what many still deem the area's best hamburgers.
For touring, the apartment's location is unsurpassed: 5 minutes' walk to the Rosslyn Metro station, an intersection of three metro lines -- Orange, Blue and the (new) Silver line to Tyson's Corner. Only one stop away on the Orange line is DC's Foggy Bottom Metro stop, which serves George Washington University, the World Bank and the State Department. Separately, a $1 shuttle bus whisks you over the Key Bridge to Georgetown and then to DuPont Circle, the heart of DC's intellectual life (home to some of the nation's most prestigious think tanks and research institutions, including the Brookings Institution, the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace, the German Marshall Fund, The Eurasia Center, the Peterson Institute and the School of Advanced International Studies of The Johns Hopkins University).
Restaurants, shops, post office, bank, CVS drug store and Arlington's art showcase Artisphere are all just around the corner from River Place, either on or next to Wilson Boulevard, Arlington's main road.
Notes: The Iwo Jima Marine Corps War Memorial adjacent to River Place is a major D.C. landmark, visited by more than 1 million annually. It's home to the Sunset Parade, a rivetting free performance Tuesday evenings during the summer months by the United States Marine Drum and Bugle Corps with the Marine Corps Silent Drill Platoon. Crowds also gather at the Memorial on the 4th of July to watch the national fireworks display.
The D.C. Circulator bus runs between Dupont Circle, Georgetown and Rosslyn. For just $1, you can hop on the Circulator at the corner of 19th St. N. and N. Moore St. -- about five minutes' from River Place -- and zip across the Key Bridge into D.C. For the return trip, pick up the bus in Dupont or Georgetown. Buses run every 10 minutes from 7:00 a.m. - midnight Sunday through Thursday and 7:00 a.m. - 2:00 a.m. on weekends. Seniors over 62 ride at half price.
There are two private bus companies that run between Rosslyn and New York City. Vamoose Bus provides service several times daily from 1801 N Lynn Street in Rosslyn -- about five minutes' walk from River Place -- to Penn Station/Madison Square Garden in midtown Manhattan. The cost ranges from $20.00 to $30.00, depending on the time of day. Tripper Bus provides daily service from nearby 1901 N. Moore Street to the Macy's flagship store on 34th Street in Manhattan, for a similar charge (as of February 2015).
