  • I felt it is a famous tourist destination, not attractions particularly is the building itself. DC views from the hills, however, views are worth a try once.

  • Arlington House, The Robert E. Lee Memorial, formerly named the Custis-Lee Mansion, is a Greek revival style mansion located in Arlington, Virginia, United States that was once the home of Confederate General Robert E. Lee. It overlooks the Potomac River and the National Mall in Washington, D.C. During the American Civil War, the grounds of the mansion were selected as the site of Arlington National Cemetery, in part to ensure that Lee would never again be able to return to his home. The United States has since designated the mansion as a National Memorial to Lee. Although the United States Department of the Army controls Arlington National Cemetery, the National Park Service, a component of the United States Department of the Interior, administers Arlington House.
  • My dream is to go to this magnificent place of our history; it truly would be an honor.
  • It's a little steep trek to the top but well worth it the views of the mall from here are very impressive and whilst the house itself isn't that big it's a grand structure which you can walk around.
