Tomb of the Unknowns Arlington, VA
#1 of 21 Sights & Landmarks in Arlington
In addition to the tomb of the WWI soldier and the Korean War / Vietnam / WWII graves in front of the tomb, there is a museum adjacent to the site describing the history of the tomb and of the guards.
Be sure to arrive a bit early to get a good spot to view the ceremony and if you stay a bit after, you may be fortunate enough to witness a wreath laying ceremony as well.
