Arlington National Cemetery welcomes visitors to explore the rich history found within the cemetery grounds. Arlington National Cemetery Tours, Inc., provides an interpretative tour bus service through Arlington with weekday stops at the Ord & Weitzel walking gate to see the U.S. Marine Corps War Memorial, President John F. Kennedy gravesite, U.S. Coast Guard Memorial, U.S. Army Gen. John J. Pershing's gravesite, the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, and the Arlington House (The Robert E. Lee Memorial).
