Arlington National Cemetery is a National treasure. There are lots of memorials to visit such as the Tomb of the Unknown, the Challenger Memorial, the JFK Memorial and more. There is timely bus service to take you to the different areas of the cemetery.

This is a place should be visited with reverence. President Kennedys grave site is very unassuming but quite powerful. The changing of the guard at the tomb of the Unknown Soldier brought tears to my eyes. Not because of sadness but the sheer overwhelming event....More

NO. It's part of the Cemetary. Parking would be for the Cemetery and you would have to walk it. I suggest getting the $10 ticket for the train ride throughout the cemetery. It stops right at it.
