Arlington Boulevard Trail Professional Reviews and Guides

"Arlington County is on the west bank of the Potomac River, just across from the nation’s capital, where it enjoys all the advantages of its close proximity to the center of government and international business.

Arlington’s many attractions draw millions of visitors from all over the world. Arlington National Cemetery, with its Eternal Flame at the gravesite of President John F. Kennedy, is the most visited of these attractions, followed by Arlington House Robert E. Lee Memorial and the Pentagon.

Just across the river in Washington, in addition to the Kennedy Center, is the Lincoln Memorial, the Smithsonian Institution, the White House, the Capitol, the Washington Monument, the Supreme Court, and many other famous points of interest."

"A number of ways exist to approach a hike in Arlington National Cemetery. With its acres of tree-shaded lawn and rows of uniform white tombstones, is a refuge of calm and contemplation."

"This ride, which requires you to carry your identification, will take you by one of our national capital’s most iconic memorials, as well as right by some of its newest. By the time you close out this loop, you will have ridden past the Iwo Jima Memorial, through one of the nation’s oldest forts, through hallowed ground, and by the 9/11 Memorial at the Pentagon. This moving and tranquil memorial is the scene of one of the most pivotal moments in our nation’s recent history."
