I was stationed at Ft. Myer in the mid 90's. It is a beautiful base with a lot of history. Security is tight so you just can't drive in. We were able to see the regimental ceremony and monument dedication. Everyone was friendly and professional.

The Old Guard gave a wonderful tour of the caisson barn and history of the unit. We got to see them make a shoe a horse as well. Don't let the paperwork of getting on base intimidate or put you off. Everyone was very helpful....More

It was such an awesome experience to be on an active base! We also got to see the Caisson Platoon Stables which was fantastic!

We have military base access and were able to drive on the base with no problem. I don’t know how this works for civilians without access. We found the stables and started to tour on our own. We entered through a side door. After a...More

This is a little-known place available for anyone to rent -- not just those with military ties. It's a bit of a hassle to find your way there and you need photo ID to enter. (Everyone also had to pre-submit information for a background check.)...More

We attended a wedding reception there, so we had reservations. We filled out a form for a background check prior to going, and then we just needed one photo ID to verify who we were when we went in.

I went with a tour group, there is no place to park so I would look for a tour company if I were you.
