Directions to Cemetery
Navigation systems do an adequate job finding the cemetery. When you arrive, please follow the people and signs to the site of the ceremony itself.

Due to anticipated congestion at the Arlington National Cemetery Metro stop, recommend exiting via the Rosslyn and Pentagon Metro stops and walking to the cemetery. From these locations it is a short 15-minute walk to one of the cemetery entrances.

If taking the Pentagon exit, recommend using the cemetery’s South Gate entrance.
General public parking will be available at the Pentagon North Parking Lot (Lanes 50-60), South Parking Lot (Lanes 1-18) and the Pentagon City Mall parking garage (small fee associated). There will be volunteers and signage positioned in the parking lots guiding visitors to walk to the nearest cemetery entrances. For those parking in Pentagon South Parking and Pentagon City Mall Parking garage, recommend walking to the cemetery’s South Gate entrance for screening and entry to the grounds. For those parking in Pentagon North Parking, recommend walking to the cemetery’s main entrance on Memorial Ave. by using the Route 27 pedestrian walkway.
