Well worth a visit if even if you don't like it, it will give you perspective and understanding of tradition and sacrifice. Even if you have no connection with the military it is a place for contemplation and reflection. If it is your first visit then take the tour to get an understanding and an overview. Be respectful and show understanding for the sacrifice they have done, it is a good final resting place.

My mother, along with some of her church family from St. James African Methodist Episcopal Church (Cleveland) had the honor of placing a wreath at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier at Arlington National Cemetery on Sept 25, 2016. What an honor. Future spectators, if you plan to visit soon... I would suggest that you wear comfortable walking shoes and possibly carry a bottle of water if you're doing the walking tour. The bus tour (of the grounds) is just $12/person. Lastly, visitors parking was $1.75/hour I believe and cash or debit was accepted. *** Debit pay was more convenient tho.

A very restful, peaceful place for our fallen service members. Parts can be crowded but there are plenty of places to walk around and immerse yourself in the place. The changing of the guard is very interesting . I like the bit where the Sargeant(?) tells people to stand during the ceremony, sitting is not allowed. Not a huge place but sometimes individual graves are not easy to find.

Tips for Getting Here, Don't Miss Moments, Photos Arlington National Cemetery is one of the most beautiful and peaceful place. You can take the subway or bus across the Potomac and then it is a short walk to the Welcome Center. They can set you up with a tour and information. Consider the hop on hop off tram tours. Or it is a nice walk up past the resting place of Oliver Wendell Holmes and John F Kennedy grave and Eternal Flame to the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier. Time it so that you can see the Changing of the Guard on the hour. You will never forget this moving experience. On your way out, don't miss the Memorial Amphitheater, the USS Maine Mast, and the Space Shuttle Columbia Memorial. There is the Lee House and hundreds of other memorials. The Marine Iwo Jima Memorial is next door. So many heroes, men and women, are buried here. Take your time to soak in this hallowed ground. You can download the ANC Explorer app for your phone to show you around. Don't miss this humbling experience. See the photos.

We visited while the cemetery was "decorated" with wreaths for the holidays. Solemn and somber place, but beautiful to visit. Amazing to think of all the men and women who served our country. Also amazing to think about the 8,000 volunteers who took the time to place the wreaths to honor our service men and women. Be sure to visit...

While this may be a cemetery, it is truly a sign of the cost of freedom. Acres of neatly placed crosses pepper the landscape; each a soldier who made the ultimate sacrifice to his or her country. Tour the area quietly and turn off your phone out of respect for these American Heroes. Watch the changing of the guard at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldiers, representing the men and women who were missing in action or prisoners of war who never made it home. JFK's eternal flame is located here as well, honoring the fallen President. This place is filled with patriotism and will change your life forever. God Bless America.

The best known of America's national cemeteries. It should be a required visit for all citizens. It's humbling in its size and its pristine condition. When you think of the magnitude of the sacrifice of those buried here and their families, it's hard to find words to describe. Light many lamps and gather round his bed. Lend him your eyes, warm blood, and will to live. Speak to him; rouse him; you may save him yet. But death replied: 'I choose him.' So he went, And there was silence in the summer night; Silence and safety; and the veils of sleep. Then, far away, the thudding of the guns.
