D.C. Weekends: Arlington National Cemetery

Wednesday, August 31, 2016


Happy hump-day! 
I wanted to start a new series on the blog called DC Weekends. There is so much to do in DC and it's surrounding areas (Virginia and Maryland) and I wanted to share it here on the blog. This past weekend hubby and I went to visit the Arlington National Cemetery. It's the final resting place of more than 14,000 veterans including those who fought in the Civil War. It's 624 acres, so make sure you bring your walking shoes because my legs still hurt from all the walking we did in there. There's no admission to get in unless you decided to do a tour. The benefit of doing the tour, you get driven around in a trolley. If you're not a big walker I would suggest doing the tour. 



There's a few highlights that are a must see like the Memorial Amphitheater, Tomb of the Unknown Solider, the Changing of the Guard and John F. Kennedy's Gravesite. (Maybe next time). We walked so much and got lost that we eventually left and couldn't find JFK's gravesite. We did catch the Changing of the Guard and I felt like I was back in London. The Tomb of the Unknown Solider was amazing to see. It stands over atop a hill overlooking D.C. There is an unknown solider who is buried from World War I and a tomb was placed over it. There's a guard marching back and forth guarding it at all times. It was pretty amazing to watch. 

Hope you guys enjoy my pictures!





















Hope you guys enjoyed this little series because there's so much to do in D.C. in the Fall and I will be sharing it on here.
