Changing of the Guard at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier
One of the most visited places in the Arlington National Cemetery is the Tomb of the Unknowns. The changing of the guard is a moment that is awaited by the big number of tourists visiting the cemetery, created after the Civil War of the US. It is a simple ceremony, but full of solemnity and respect. Keep in mind that this place is visited by over 4,000,000 foreign tourists and Americans. The memorial to the Unknown Soldier, is made of 7 pieces of granite, with a total weight of 72 tons and was opened to the public in the year 1932. The Unknown Soldier has a permanent guard 24 hours every day of the year. When you reach the entrance to the cemetery will deliver a brochure and map of the site, which is immense, must take into account that it is one of the largest cemeteries in the world.

Museums in Arlington
I do not know if it's interesting to someone who is not a journalist. On the terrace there are amazing views of Washington. The part of the 11 / S is moving, how could it be otherwise, and the hotspot of games was fun. The store, as always, wonderful. When I went there was an exhibition of Elvis, I´m not sure what to do with the press.

The Fashion Centre at Pentagon City
The Fashion Centre is a real American shopping centre. It has palm trees, escalators, teenagers spending their money, etc. It's a way to experience the real life of Americans. In the United States, everything is like what you see on TV. You would think that things would be different in reality, but they're really not. To enjoy your visit even more, I recommend a good ice cream at Häagen Dazs.
