What travelers say:

The Pentagon is the seat of the US Department of Defense and is located in Arlington County, Virginia, southwest of Washington, DC. Due to its special function, sometimes the word "Pentagon" not only represents the building itself, but also often used as a synonym for the US Department of Defense and even the US military authorities. On September 11, 2001, on the day of the 60th anniversary of the Pentagon’s groundbreaking, the September 11 terrorist attack occurred. American Airlines Flight 77 hijacked by terrorists crashed into the west side of the Pentagon and crashed.

Additional Information


The Pentagon is the headquarters of the United States Department of Defense, the part of the US government charged with coordinating and supervising all agencies and functions concerned directly with national security and the United States Armed Forces. The Pentagon is located on the banks of the Potomac River in Arlington, Virginia. Dedicated in 1943, it is the world's largest office building. A well-known misconception held the most sensitive materials were housed in the building's central courtyard, resulting in this location being a prime target during the Cold War should hostilities have erupted between the United States and the Soviet Union.
