If you have no experience with the military, you may find the guard station interesting, and the dorms, Base Exchange, bowling alley, and chapels, etc. Generally, it was an ordinary Army base. It was more beautiful than most, because of Arlington National Cemetery in the background, and the lovely trees.

Where the Tomb Guards live is a beautiful Post. The back entrance into Arlington Cemetery and the Old Post Chapel showcase the start of a Soldiers Final Review. Stand quietly and reverently and see the gentleness and caring manner provided to those on their way to burial at one of the many famous areas within Arlington National Cemetery. If you... More

We love the inexpensive classic bowling alley at Ft. Myer. You have to go through an inspection to get on base but the low prices and family atmospher make it a great place to hang out with friends and bowl a few games. The wine selection leaves a lot to be desired but what do you really expect from a... More

We visited onm a Saturday and ran into restrictions and closed gates. The signs were not helpful and one does not know that a gate is closed until one gets there. Not tourist friendly.

I grew up in Arlington in a military family. We spent so much time at Ft. Myers. Swimming, bowling, the military parades which were absolutely beautiful to watch, especially at night. Ft. Myers has px, commissary and medical facilities and is right next to Henderson Hall and Arlington National Cemetery.

Small, nice post. Was there for business/government training. Nice spacious community club. Can see the edge of Arlington Cemetery just past the community club.

The famous home of the most precision military unit in the world. The 3rd Infantry Regiment (Old Guard) and their elite Tomb Guards diligently train and prepare for their somber duties on these beautiful grounds.

We were told about the Army Tattoo and it was in walking distance. It is held on a parage ground overlooking DC - great view. The music and drill was excellent and the kids enjoyed it.

We came to Fort Myer to watch the 4th of July fireworks. Although MWR was having a ticketed event that day, it ended by 6 p.m. We set up our picnic blanket on the lawn at Whipple Field which overlooks all of DC from atop a hill. They had coolers of ice water set out and Gatorade and other drinks... More
