Arlington National Cemetery

First used during the Civil War, Arlington National Cemetery is the resting place of over 400,000 veterans of U.S. wars. The most famous site on the grounds is the poignant Tomb of the Unknown Soldier. It sits atop a beautiful hill and houses the remains of American soldiers who have yet to be identified. Guarded 24 hours a day by fellow American soldiers, you can see the meticulous changing of the guard if you time your visit right.

9/11 Memorial at the Pentagon

Commemorating the lives lost during 9/11 at the Pentagon and on American Airlines Flight 77, this memorial consists of 184 granite-covered benches in remembrance of each individual that lost their life. There is also an option to listen to an audio recording that describes the events of that fateful day.

Marine Corps Memorial

The iconic image of marine soldiers raising an American flag on top of Mount Suribachi in Iwo Jima was initially captured in a photograph by Joe Rosenthal. Later memorialized as a sculpture by Felix de Weldon, it stands to honor all Marines who have served this country. The Lincoln Memorial, Washington Monument, and Capitol Building provide a picturesque backdrop.
