Kennedy Family Graves
Reminisce about the family that left an indelible mark on the lives of all Americans. Of the beloved family, six were laid to rest in Arlington, including President John Fitzgerald Kennedy, Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis, Robert Francis Kennedy, two infant Kennedy children and Edward (Ted) Kennedy.
Tomb of the Unknown
Watch the changing of the guard at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier. Here Unknown Soldiers from WWI, WWII and Korea are buried in front of the Memorial Amphitheater. The Unknown Soldier from Vietnam was exhumed and reburied at his home in Saint Louis, Missouri after his remains were identified in 1998 through DNA testing.
Come see the mansion that was constructed by the first president’s adopted grandson, George Washington Parke Custis. George’s only child, Mary Anna Randolph Custis, married her childhood friend, Robert E. Lee. During the Civil War the federal government auctioned the property after refusing to accept payment of taxes from the Lee’s representative. The law at the time stipulated that property tax had to be paid in person.
Pierre Charles L’Enfant
Visit the man who designed the original layout of the nation’s capital who was laid to rest overlooking the glorious city that he designed. L’Enfant’s layout is forever engraved on the top of his table-like tomb on the hilltop overlooking Washington.
Challenger and Columbia
Pay your respects to the fourteen astronauts who lost their lives on NASA’s Challenger and Columbia shuttles, which broke up during launch and reentry respectively.
Mast of the USS Maine
Behold the mast of the battleship USS Maine, which sank in Havana harbor on February 15, 1898. The sinking eventually led to the Spanish-American War. The cause of the explosion is still a point of contention of whether the ship sank due to a Spanish mine or an internal mechanical malfunction.

“What a special day with a fun and knowledgable guide, Bo. He shared interesting stories and expertly guided us through the grounds at our own pace. He patiently dealt with our energetic eight year son. We all had a great time and would highly recommend it to others!”Doug, Trip Advisor
