If you go to DC and miss Arlington, you've missed DC. This is a pilgrimage for some and a challenge for others, but it is where our American heart rests.

Excellent piece of history and reflection on those that gave everything for our country. We chose to walk the grounds and opted out of the tours so I cannot comment on those. The weather was decent and we easily spent two hours walking around the cemetery. Staff members we ran into were all friendly and assisted with directions. Well worth... More

We left too little time to appreciate this mass of history. One very practical tip - wear mosquito repellent. We were all bitten

When you look across at all the tomb stones - it is overwhelming to think of how many soldiers fought for this country.

This is one of the most amazing place I've ever been. You have to go to understand. The feeling you get, the gratefulness you feel. The emotions it stirs up in you. An absolutely sacred place.

A very touching visit resulting in so much appreciation for our deceased military and dignitaries who are buried there. The pictures and history of burial procedures is very helpful. The walk through the cemetery brings a combination of feelings of appreciation, sadness, awe and gratitude to our country.

Very heartfelt place to experience. We love this place, and if you get a chance go to Normandy France as well. Be sure to watch changing of the guard.
