First and foremost, when visiting, be respectful. Check out the Visitor Center for a tour, or you can just walk around on your own. There's also a shuttle tour. Loads of famous gravesides from our fallen soldiers, to First Ladies, to the victims of the Challenger disaster. There's even a special memorial for the Women in the Military. I highly recommend watching the changing of the guard at least once in your life. It's incredibly moving.

If you are visiting DC then Arlington Cemetery is a must to see. We were there in December and even though we are from Australia we were so touched at the care and remembrance shown by having wreaths laid on every head stone. It was very moving and interesting reading the inscriptions on the old stones.

Such a moving and somber place. Tombstones as far as you can see as reminders of the sacrifices Americans made in the name of their country. Things to see: grave of Joe Louis, Eternal Flame, Challenger memorial.

This is one of the most solemn graveyards you will ever seen. You don't realize how cluttered most graveyards are with their obelisks and tombs and monuments, until you come here and see thousands and thousands of the same gravestones -- men who gave their lives for the same causes. Very moving.

An incredible and solemn place. It's an amazing way to spend a day in the DC area, and no matter what your political opinions it's something you need to see. Be sure and catch the changing of the guard as well as Kennedy's tomb.

The amount of beauty and care given to this place is amazing. The land that the cemetery was built on has so much history before the first headstone was even placed. Please take the tour you will not regret it. Be respectful as there is almost a funeral a day in this calm place. At the tomb with the guards please do NOT cross the ropes into their area! For a wonderful view across the river into DC be sure to exit the cemetery over at the marine corps memorial and you can see straight across without any buildings in the way.

A must-see for the D.C. area. Seeing the changing of the guard at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier is very interesting. Please be quiet and respectful when visiting. The Arlington house is under construction currently but is still worth seeing for the view of D.C. from the top of the hill.

Amazing national treasure. There are no words to describe how surreal this experience is. I have been two times, both times I was in complete awe. A must see if you are in the D.C. area.

Make sure to visit here when you are in DC. This place is eye-opening and really makes you appreciate the great sacrifice that our military men and women have given in order to make our country what it is. Make sure to visit the Tomb Of The Unknown when you come here. I didn't make it to the Eternal Flame, which is JFK's grave site, and that may be somewhere you'd want to visit too. Also worth mentioning too is that this place is huge so make sure you are wearing comfortable walking shoes.

Many people have already mentioned this but make sure you're respectful. When I visited there was a funeral of a young man in process.With that being said, the rows and rows of gravestones is really impactful. I was moved walking through the cemetery.

In the information center, there is a kiosk where you can search your last name and find relatives that are buried at Arlington, turns out I had one relative buried there and was able to visit his grave.

Also check out the tomb of the unknown solider. It was raining when I went, and they still march in the rain. It was moving to see the solider marching in a downpour.
