Seeing the Sights in Arlington and Alexandria

Arlington is home to many historic monuments and attractions including Arlington National Cemetery, home of the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier and the grave of, among others, John F. Kennedy; the Pentagon, the world’s largest office building; the Iwo Jima Memorial, dedicated to all Marines who have given their lives in defense of the United States since 1775; and the Netherlands Carillon, a gift from the Netherlands containing 49 stationary bells with a four-octave range of notes. Not to be overlooked is Theodore Roosevelt Island and Memorial with its 88 acres and 17-foot-tall bronze memorial of the 26th president. Old Town Alexandria is home to a number of boutiques, restaurants, and antiques and art galleries, including the Torpedo Factory Art Center. Built in 1918 for the manufacturing of ‘no surprise’ torpedoes, the center now features 84 working artists’ studios, six galleries, the Art League School, and an Archaeology Museum that offers an interesting glimpse of the history of the city. There are a number of other historic sites, including Frank Lloyd Wright’s Pope-Leighey House, the Alexandria Black History Museum, the George Washington Masonic National Memorial, which was patterned after the lighthouse in Alexandria, Egypt, and displays a 17-foot bronze statue of George Washington and an impressive collection of Washington artifacts, and of course, George Washington’s beloved home, Mount Vernon. Don’t miss the newest attraction – the Patent and Trademark Office Museum, whose inaugural exhibition showcases inventions and trademarks that are part of our everyday life from toasters to Birdseye frozen vegetables to Pez dispensers.
