    Where Heros rest! It is an eye opener for sure. Many are just kids that made the ultimate sacrifice to this great nation. It is no irony it overlooks DC.

    Changing of guards at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier is pretty cool and remember to pay your respect by refraining from talking. Use inside voices and cellphones on silent!

    Great place to park if sightseeing in the city... Just park in the deck and walk across the bridge to all the memorials.

    DC by foot does great walking tours at 10 AM on Saturdays and Wednesdays leaving from the visitor center.

    The building is totally unmarked, but it's immediately to the right when you turn into the visitor's parking entrance.

    Bring your handicap parking placard into the visitor center to get a pass, and drive through the cemetery instead of parking at the visitor center.
