Visit the final resting place of American presidents and luminaries. – Overview
As the burial site of presidents, military figures and other national heroes, Arlington National Cemetery is the closest thing the United States has to a pantheon. Perched on a hillside on the Virginia side of the Potomac River, the site also provides a commanding view of Washington's landmarks and monuments.
Among memorials too numerous to list are the gravesite of President John F. Kennedy, the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier and a monument to the victims of the Space Shuttle Challenger. With its acres of white headstones--many belonging to casualties of military conflicts--the site is at once sobering and inspiring.
Arlington National Cemetery – I went there and it was such a touching and wonderful place! I recomend it to anyone...
An amazing experience! – Arlington was the most unbelievable site. The cemetery was not extremely busy but if you are looking for a more personal experience I recommend arriving there early in the morning to miss some of the crowds. A day trip. Visiting the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier is a must. I recommend walking around all of the tombstones and wandering off the path. I remember one in particular. They were two brothers who were buried next together. On their stones each of them had four engraved stars representing that they were four-star generals. They were among the thousands of heroes resting in peace there. If you do go to Arlington please respect that it is a cemetery and that many of us have family members resting there. It is not a place for your children to run around.
