Best things to do in Arlington and sightseeing in Arlington
Cowboys Dancehall - Arlington
Six Flags Over Texas - Arlington
Arlington National Cemetery - Arlington
From there we visited the Arlington National Cemetery. And again, what a somber moment. Americans are truly proud of their country and you can feel it wherever you go around the States. When we arrived at the cemetery, it was “the changing of guard” at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier. The guard is changed every hour on the hour Oct. 1 to March 31 in an elaborate ritual.
Marine Corps Memorial - Arlington
After some spectacular views at Lincoln Memorial we were headed across the Potomac River over the Memorial Bridge to the Marine Corps Memorial or the Iwo Jima Memorial. The memorial depicts one of the most enduring images of World War II, Associated Press photographer Joe Rosenthal’s Pulitzer prize winning photograph in which he snapped five Marines and one Navy corpsman raising the American Flag on top of Mount Suribachi during the battle for Iwo Jima. Andy showed us a mystic of the memorial, he said us to keep our eyes fixed at the flag post as the bus drove very slowly around the monument. It seemed that the flag is being hoisted and finally the flag pole gets erected.
