Tomb of the Unknowns
Arlington, Va., is the perfect getaway location for any American history buff. Located just outside of D.C, this area contains monuments, museums and other bits of national history. Fill up the gas tank, grab your family or a few friends, and go see what the capital’s next door neighbor has to offer.
Soldiers are placing more than 220,000 small U.S. flags at Arlington National Cemetery to mark the start of Memorial Day weekend activities.
