This is a must do in everyone’s lifetime. Everyone should come to Arlington and pay their respects to all these men and women who have paid the ultimate price for your freedom. To see this hallowed ground should be part of your American experience.

The changing of the guard at the Tomb of the Unknowns is an AMAZING phenomenon and a great tribute to our service men and women. The precision and ceremony are awe inspiring.

Take some time to learn about the history of this cemetery (its linkage to the family of Robert E Lee), the Old Guard, and some of the famous Americans who are entombed here. You will not regret it.

It is particularly beautiful to see as the cherry blossoms begin their blooms.

The cemetery is hilly so expect to do some walking. There are many different sections to visit along with the Lee house.

You could easily spend the day here exploring the history and visiting the final resting places of thousands of Americans, many of them familiar to anyone with a high school history class.

Special memorials to veterans of various wars as well as both Space Shuttle crews. Several statues. Graves of JFK, RFK, Ted Kennedy, many Supreme Court Justices too.

We went partially to visit the graves of 10 of the crew from the worlds first transatlantic flight (no its wasn’t Lindbergh, it was five US Navy pilots).

There is a free app, ANC Explorer and a web site to find specific grave sites by name. The app includes GPS so you can get walking directions to any grave from where you are in the cemetery.

Entry is free but parking is $6 and the team/shuttle was $12 per person. There is a LOT of space here, consider the tram, it has 6-10 regular stops and will save lots of time and effort. Small gift shop but some good books of the history of the cemetery.

Changing of the Guard ceremony at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier is a must visit while you’re there.

A solemn, historical, modern and serene site.
The big draw card is the grave of JFK with many other notable US Military dating back to the Civil War.
The Changing of the Guard is a DO NOT MISS, happens every hour on the hour and is at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, allow at least 20 minutes to get there from the main entry.
The Big Bus Hop-On-Hop-Off bus goes there for ease of transport.

I was here for my Uncle's funeral. He was a WW2 vet and retired as a Lt. Co. I had visited before and it was an inspiring experience. However walking behind the horse drawn caisson through the cemetery was an emotional experience I was not adequately prepared for. With an honor guard, color guard , and military band it was more pomp and circumstance than I was prepared for. The reaction of onlookers who where there for their own respect for the fallen was overwhelming. This is a special place and I would encourage all to visit.
