Description

Travel over the Potomac to Arlington, Virginia to walk among the sober gardens and clean white gravestones in the 600-acre (242 ha) Arlington National Cemetery. Explore the reverent monuments and memorials of this hallowed ground on a convenient trolley that takes you to the cemetery's major sites.

The land that is now Arlington National Cemetery has played an important role throughout American history, serving as a camp for Federal Troops during the Civil War and as a safe haven for slaves entering the free North. It began to be used for military burials in 1864. Learn about some of the 400,000 heroes, presidents and veterans buried here, and watch the sombre Changing of the Guard at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier.

You can move through the cemetery at your own pace, stepping off the trolley for a closer look at different stops which include:

  • Marine Corps War Memorial
  • President John F. Kennedy Gravesite
  • U.S. Coast Guard Memorial
  • Pershing Gravesite
  • Memorial Amphitheatre
  • Robert E. Lee Memorial

The staff at the front desk didn't see very well versed on how to handle these electronic vouchers so it took about 10 minutes to get our real tickets but the rest was very memorable and humbling to say the least
