This segment of our trip was actually the first thing we did once we arrived in Virginia. I was super excited to visit Mount Vernon, only because it was in National Treasure 2 and I’ve loved that movie since middle school. We also visited Arlington National Cemetery which was beautiful and sooo much bigger than I ever thought it would be.
*Tip: if you are visiting Arlington and want to see the Changing of the Guard, just go to the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, because its in the same location. Something we didn’t realize and so we walked around for about 20 minutes trying to find it.
