If this is your first spring break living in Arlington, you’re probably overwhelmed just thinking about an itinerary. After you’ve said goodbye to your Arlington moving company, it’s time to start planning your family’s week in this new city. Here are some of our best tips of places you must see during your time off.
#1 Tomb of The Unknowns
Be taken back by this memorial for unidentified soldiers from the two World Wars and the Korean War. Guarded 24/7 by the Army’s 3rd Infantry, visitors are speechless when they take time to remember all of the soldiers that have sacrificed their lives for our freedom.
One visitor from Trip Advisor describes it like this: “The dedication of the soldiers to this hallowed place is inspiring to see. A solemn and quiet spot that serves as an enduring tribute to those lost in battle.”
#2 Arlington National Cemetery
Visit Arlington Cemetery to pay respect to over 260,000 Veterans from every American war. Stop by the reception area to look up family members or gravesites such as John F. Kennedy and The Tomb of the Unknowns before your venture out into the winding paths. This moving experience is something you will never forget.
#3 Gravelly Point Park
Visit this park when planes are using Reagan International’s southern approach. Let your imagination take you away, as large planes glide right over this grassy park. Bring a Frisbee and a picnic to enjoy all of the park’s amenities.
