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 most hallowed grounds in our area. As a personal note, my grandfather Major Andrew F. Martin, USAF, who was killed in action is buried here with my grandmother Mary Alice. My husband Phil and I as veterans hold this site close to our hearts.

“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.”
“Huge mall with tons of shopping! Located in Arlington VA about 12 minutes away ”
“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. ”
