May 18, 2010 Washington DC

Posted by on May 18, 2010

Our tour of the Pentagon today was basically a tour of a mall and suburban office complex. We covered  about 1.5 miles in a little less than an hour with lots of info and little time to look at anything. But there wasn’t really much to look at  – lots of hallways and doors, as well as Starbucks, Godiva, and a DOT driver’s license station. The one place where we paused briefly was the Memorial to those killed during the attack on the Pentagon on September 11, 2001.

On our way back to the city we stopped at Arlington Cemetary. We didn’t have a lot of time, so we took the Tourmobile Hop-on, hop-off bus. It gave us plenty of time to see the graves of JFK, the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, and the Changing of the Guard at the tomb. We didn’t stop to see Lee’s mansion, but you could. I would have liked to wander a little more, but we saw the main sites.

Our tour of the Bureau of Engraving and Printing was really lame. It lasted about half an hour and we didn’t see much.
