Our visit was Thursday, November 29, 2007. Going through the visitors center, be sure to pick up a map. You might be tempted to buy a Tourmobile ticket to tour the cemetery. My advice is don't if you can walk a mile or 2 (more if you want to walk along every single drive) and the weather is not extreme. It is definitely not too large to walk and well worth it. You will see a lot more and won't be on the Tourmobile schedule. We walked to the 3 major highlights (JFK, Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, Arlington House) and covered well over half of the cemetery along the way. There are some beautiful views of Washington DC and a lot of memorials and plaques that will only be seen if walking. It was extremely peaceful just hearing leaves rustling and squirrles running around. It is an awesome experience if going duing the off-peak season. It was a truly amazing visit.
