Signposts from the security building back to car park would be helpful plus pay at barrier machines need attending too so they issue receipts. Staff in security building friendly and helpful

The sacrifice made by so many for the freedom we generally take for granted. We have been here frequently and this past trip was as impactful as the first. The sea of white grave markers is stunning. The ages of so many young and even middle aged men and women who died in service to our nation is heart breaking.... More

Beautiful cemetery with a wonderful view of the city. I stumbled across many well known names not generally featured, such as the wife and son of Abraham Lincoln and WW II's general Omar Bradley. I also enjoyed the tour of General Lees estate and learned of his wife connection with George Washington.

The cemetery is really quite spectacular, and very well manicured which honors all those who gave the ultimate sacrifice. Remember to take your parking pass with you and pay for the parking at the visitor's center. It will save time at the exit gate.

This is a must do/see. It's a cemetery, yes, but it's beautifully designed & makes you appreciate our men & women who fought to protect our freedoms even more than you may already do. The changing of the guard at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier is one of the most moving ceremonies I've witnessed. There's a lot of walking.... More

It was very surreal seeing all of the grave markers of all of the men and women (spouses are interned here as well) who served in the nation's military over the centuries. JFK grave site was amazing, there is a constant burning flame over his site. Next to his grave is his wife's and their unborn daughter. At the top... More

If you you have never been to Washington DC, or if you have and not visited Arlington National Cemetery, you owe it to yourselves and to the brave members of our military who made the ultimate sacrifice in defending our rights to peace and freedom. It is overwhelming to see the thousands of grave markers displayed over acres of gently... More

Very nice cemetery to walk around on a nice day. Very close walking distance over to D.C. national malls and a lot of hotels nearby to stay at.

I attended a memorial service at Arlington National Cemetery. The service was precise and cordial. The caisson procession was amazing and humbling. I felt honored to attend.
