    The iconic image that took place in 1945. It's in Arlington's upper side. So, prepare a good pair of shoes, a camera and...go!

    Worth the walk but leave it till last as it is a short walk from here to Roslyn metro stop to get you back into Washington. Or if you have the energy, walk to DC across the bridge from here
