Arlington National Cemetery in Arlington County, Virginia, is a national military cemetery in the United States of America, established during the American Civil War on the grounds of Arlington House.
Beautiful and monumental cemetery. You can witness the changing of the guard every hour. Check times in advance. If you come too late for the cherry blossoms, this is the next best spot since the cherry blossoms here bloom later than the ones along the tidal basin
Our beautiful national cemetery for our war heroes. You can find my grandparents and great-grandparents in Section 30!
Check out the graves of people like JFK and Thurgood Marshall, as well as the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier.

“The view of Washington DC at night from the Iwo Jima Memorial is amazing. Many times, when you see night photos and post cards from Washington DC, it is from this vantage point.”
“Large mall, newly renovated. Usually packed, depending on season has lots of school tourist groups. ”
“There are several memorials around the Pentagon including the Airforce Memorial and the 9-11 Memorial at the Pentagon”
“This free memorial to the victims of the 9-11 attack on the Pentagon is a very special place. The memorial itself is thoughtfully planned with special meaning built in to its design. This is my favorite place in D.C. for reflection and peace and quiet when needed. Recommend visiting at dusk. ”
