Historic, symbolic and very moving. Well worth a visit. Pay for the train ride to hop on and hop off. Arlington house is well worth a tour. Do not miss the Women's Memorial near the visitors centre. Probably allow for 60-90 mins. Lots of walking up and down steep hills. Be prepared.

All should have the opportunity to experience Arlington. Having done so many times, I thought I had been respectful, appreciative and had learned. Today I went for the specific purpose of paying my respects at the grave of two friends. Moving, humbling, rewarding.

I walked to Arlington Cemetery in the early morning from the National Mall. It was December 2015 to be accurate but I have been slack reviewing. It was not long after Memorial Day, so every headstone had a wreath laid on it. This just added to the experience and made it a special visit. I Entered as soon as it... More

We had to transfer from DC to head to the mall and Arlington is where you get off. Massive cemetery for all the war dead. Never ending graves. Also, JFK I buried here. No admission charged.

A very old friend was buried with full military honors. The experience was moving and the professionalism of the cemetery staff was outstanding. The soldiers, who participate in the funerals are great young Americans and deserve out appreciation and support.

This cemetery is just incredible as far as the eyes can see. I encourage you to ride the shuttle...they give you lots of information and tons of little stories. Do not miss the changing of the guards but ride the shuttle...its a BIG HILL to walk up. Gift shop is nice also.

If anyone ever asks what the Cost of our Freedom is, take them to this hallowed ground. It was an amazing tour that give you perspective on what it takes to keep our nation free. Go and witness the changing of the guard at the Tomb of the Unknown and be respectful as the Guards will not tolerate any disrespectful... More

I visited as a chaperone to a high school band that is playing in the inauguration parade. There are no words to express what a honor it was to be there. This is my favorite place in DC.

It's always humbling to visit the graves of men who fought and died making our country. But if walking a lot is not in your DNA take the tour buses
