No food allowed, but bring water -- water is available in the information center, but at almost $3. I also brought a pocket-size snack such as peanuts. No mess; it is truly a sacred place.

It is very convenient to parking but it is expensive, I paid $10.50; the metro stops conveniently and so do buses.

Pictures, videos, even with the changing of the guards; quiet is the respect you feel at the ceremonies. No cell rang at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, respect was just came naturally

The weather was warm/then hot.. I wore Jeans, t-shirt, good walking shoes. Make sure you have on comfortable shoes as there is a lot of walking and standing. .

Longer than 3 1/2 hours so be prepared. Route was too tiring for older friends due to the length
