Really cool to finally see this memorial in person after seeing photos of it for so many years. This is very easy to get to and well worth the visit.

Hi Judi; I believe you already have the answers, but; I'll throw my "two cents" in. 1. About the tram; I originally believe it was and on and off type trolly where you could get off at a stop and wander and then get on a subsequent bus and continue... -Yes this is correct. You can get off at any stop, wander around at your own pace and catch any subsequent tram to continue through the circuit. 2. If it is the LAST stop, at what point do you see the Changing of the Guard at the Unknown? -They will tell you at each stop what is nearby to see, visit. They will let you know "Here you can watch the "Changing of the Guard" at the Tomb of the Unknowns. 3. Also, is the walk from Arlington to the Marine Corps Memorial difficult? -The tram/tour trolley has a stop that is at a side gate. The USMC Memorial is through the gate and across the street. It is a short walk and rather easy stroll. There is a "security" guard at the gate to check your bags as you come back into the Cemetery. 4. And, do you have to pay again and go through security again to return to Arlington? -No, there is no charge to enter Arlington. HOWEVER, keep you trolley ticket. You may be required to show it whenever you get back onto a tram/trolley. I hope this helps! Enjoy your trip. OUR capital is a wonderful place to reflect on the GOOD this Country has brought to the world.....Indeed we are an EXCEPTIONAL Country and People!
