  • First time visiting the Air Force Memorial and it was truly an honor to see memorial commemorating the men and women who served our Nation bravely. An amazing tribute and design of the monument! Today we get so caught up in pointing out the flaws and shortcomings of people, that we forget to appreciate our own freedom due to the selfless acts of our service people who keep our country safe. Love is the greatest commandment of all, and the Love for our country demonstrated by our service heroes just makes this monument that much more special. A fitting and unique memorial and the views of the nation's capital from the memorial are awesome as well! Definitely recommend this location to visit.
  • You can see the tall structures from the distance and they look amazing but visiting the memorial up close is even better. There is quite a bit to see and read here. It’s away from the busy part of the city so it’s a nice relaxing stop. Parking is free. Great views of the DC National Mall from up here on the hill.
  • Stunning architecture at this memorial for the branch of service my brother Carmine served. Was there as part of a Villages Honor Flight trip. The flight members had lunch here a delicious sub that Firehouse delivered. The owner of the Firehouse franchise was a Vet herself.
  • This a small but really thought provoking memorial . The four statues are really good three. men and one woman service personnel .Glad our tour guide took us. The 3 spires are beautiful and fitting for this air force memorial.
  • An amazing structure to see ; congratulations to the men and women who have and still do serve our country and protect us !!!

Where to stay in Arlington

If your trip to America's capital city doesn't include a big budget for accommodations, consider staying on the other side of the Potomac River in the county of Arlington. You’ll find a good selection of both expensive and economical hotels inside Washington, D.C., proper, but staying in Arlington county removes you from the big crowds and allows you to choose from a range of budget-friendly inns and motels. This area also offers extended-stay apartments, many located near the Ballston neighborhood's metro stop.
