Walking around this amazing location is moving. The heroes that rest here assured us our freedom, explored outer space or led the nation as Presidents. The walk, views and serenity is a fitting tribute. I conducted three funerals here representing the Marines while I was stationed at the Pentagon. No other cemetery provides such a moving final salute to our... More

This huge cementery monument is one of the main symbols of USA. It is worth the visit, it is a must see indeed. No way you go to Washington and you don't stop by it.

I go to Arlington Cemetery often as both my granddads and one grandmother are buried here. It is a place of reflection and a place where I can pay my respects to those who gave the ultimate sacrifice as well as those who served their time, died and were buried here with honor. Highly recommend everyone, US and non-US alike,... More

Arlington is a wonderful place to bring your older children. They will see the headstones and hopefully understand how these people sacrificed their lives for their country. It is well manicured, and I can highly recommend the bus tour. We arrived around lunch and left around 5. Our teenagers never got bored. More people need to walk Arlington.

My wife's father is buried at Arlington National Cemetery and we have been there many, many times, but each time is like the first. There is no place in this country or any other where you will feel more reverence, respect and emotion than this sacred ground. The sheer volume or stones is breathtaking and reading even a few, will... More

This cemetery is breathtaking with so much history and beauty. Beautiful walk up to the Tomb of the Unknown soldier. The eternal flame at JFK's gravesite brings back a lot of memories when I visited as a child right after his assassination. Wonderful tribute to our Military men who served our great USA.
