DC Trip - Arlington National Cemetery

Day 4

Thursday, we took the Metro out to Arlington National Cemetery. We quickly signed up for the Tourmobile tram tour that has four stops: the visitor center, the Kennedy graves [photoblog.com] (Jack, Jackie, Bobby, and Teddy), The Tomb of the Unknowns [photoblog.com], and Arlington House [photoblog.com]. We were able to get to the Tomb of the Unknowns [photoblog.com] just in time to see the changing of the guard, which is a fantastic sight.

After spending much of the day in Arlington, we headed back to The District for some lunch at the Old Ebbitt Grille. On the way, we stopped by the front lawn of The White House [photoblog.com].

After our late (3pm) lunch, we headed back to the National Gallery of Art [photoblog.com]. It seems that during our Wednesday trip to the art museum, we missed the gallery's hallmark piece, DaVinci's Ginevra de' Benci (aka “The DaVinci”). It is the only portrait by DaVinci in the Western Hemisphere.

After seeing The DaVinci, we headed next door to the East Wing of the National Gallery of Art [photoblog.com], which houses modern and contemporary art (Picasso, Warhol, Matisse, etc.).
