Congressional Cemetery: what do users think?


Mary A. Malinconico: I visited the Congressional Cemetery, April 16, 2022. It was a wonderful spring day with the cherry trees in full bloom. The cemetery is a very nice location to take a walk and view the different styles of gravestones. There are cobble walkways and dirt paths. Be careful if you walk off the path, the ground is uneven. Loves to see thee was an active bee colony with many hives. The bee keepers were there performing maintenance.

Pat: This cemetery is essentially a dog-park that happens to have a lot of graves. I was initially surprised the prevalence of dogs but later learned their dog-walking program subsidizes 25% of their operating budget. An innovative approach to staying financially solvent. Maybe Congressional is on to something. Should we revisit how we utilize sacred spaces in our modern community? There are still several issues that bothered me during my visit today. 1) I witnessed multiple dogs scratching at a tomb while the owner did nothing. The tomb appeared to be marble, so probably not a significant scratch. However, the concept is rather appalling to me. 2) I saw three young woman having a picnic and appeared to be drinking alcohol. Is Congressional trying to become a new BarkHaus? This whole thing looked in bad taste. 3) Its obnoxious to hear constant “come here” or clapping/whistling dog noises as you walk around. The grounds are well maintained and there are some really unique people buried here. Worth a brief visit
Response: Thank you for your feedback. People choose to be buried in our cemetery precisely because of the liveliness it entails. Our cemetery is unique in its programming and outreach efforts and does not fall into disrepair thanks to the engagement of our neighbors and the public through those programs. Our dog walking membership program, as you noted, is integral to our ability to maintain the historic landscape, as it provides almost 30% of our operating revenue. While our cemetery isn’t for everyone, it would not be open at all if not for these programs overseen by our nonprofit organization. If you would like to come for a tour, you can do so on Saturdays when we are closed to dogs, and you can walk the grounds K9 free. Our national historic landmark serves our local community in innovative ways, and we are proud of the relationships we have built and the work we do.

Di “Di Soul” Gamble: This is a peaceful area. Congressional has worked with the community for years & years, extending themselves as more than just a rest home for the beloved departed. I have heard (but not attended 😔) that there are many events for the living; spanning from film viewings to book readings. It is a quiet place for walking & a unique meet up for dog walks. There are many benches for relaxing & a few tables as well. There is lots of local history located at this cemetery. The grounds are simple but mostly well kept.

Nancy Dierker: For those of you who enjoy history, this place is really worth your time. This cemetery predates Arlington going back to the earliest days of Washington. It offers a wonderful program that allows dogs off the leash.
Response: Thanks for your visit and review! Free tours at the gate, but not that the dog walking program is for members only.

Rusty Wilson: I may have to go back. I feel I missed many hidden graves. Due to a extremely hot day and it was a little after noon it was not a good time to visit. I was surprised by the many gay headstones. It's nice to see the love cannot be broken in death. It's nice to be able to research those who have gone on from this earth.

Ronda Bernstein: Great place to do a walking tour of a historic Cemetery. Self-guided or with a docent. Filled with historic DC notables. Tours brochures available at the office, at the gate or on their website. Lots of other activities throughout the year as well like yoga, 5ks and festivals.

Connor Smith: Congressional Cemetery in SE DC is full of Civil War superstars: Alfred Pleasanton, Thaddeus Stevens, and Andrew Humphreys among others. You are also allowed to walk your dog here and there is a program where you pay to maintain the cemetery in exchange for being able to walk your dog leash-less.

Teresa Ruby: This is a great place to visit with a dog or if you like history. There's a lot of cool graves to visit. It's very relaxing and refreshing to walk around.

Matthew Henry: This place is a must see while in DC. And, it's a dog park too. What a wonderful idea.

jackie brown: Look for the Benjamin Brown French tombstone! Stood beside Lincoln at Gettysburg where his poem was sung, made all the funeral arrangements for Lincoln, commissioner of all public buildings, saw laid cornerstone of Smithsonian and Capitol. Fabulous history, saw Lincoln on a daily basis and his Journal is used for historic value. Born in Chester, NH.

Rock Creek Cemetery/Churchyard: what do users think?


Mary A. Malinconico: Visited Rock Creek Cemetery on April 15…on a lovely spring day. Nice place to take a walk while viewing the grave sites. Lovely cherry trees in bloom.

Roger Blain: I visited Rock Creek after spending several crowded days at the Smithsonian, and was double struck by the peacefulness of this cemetery. The grounds are lovely and in April there were many trees and shrubs in blossom. I spent a couple hours there on a Sunday morning and was surprised at the paucity of visitors.

Austin Graff: If you're also oddly inspired by cemeteries, you hit the jackpot with Rock Creek Cemetery. Not only if this cemetery sizeable and with many gems inside, it's next door to another equally interesting cemetery- Soldiers Home Cemetery. Both are located in the Northeast neighborhood of Fort Totten close to several restaurants, parks, and even breweries. As you walk through the main gate, you'll read a sign that notes the cemetery was established in 1887. However, its story begins in 1719 when Maryland was under British rule. The cemetery was in the churchyard of St. Paul's Episcopal Church. When the British left, the area became part of D.C., and years later, it became Rock Creek Cemetery. The cemetery itself has well-kept paths through the property. There are thousands of gravestones, mausoleums, and sculptures. There's also a chapel in the center of the property. The cemetery houses not only politicians but also athletes, writers, journalists, etc. One of the best-hidden gems inside is the Adams Memorial in honor of a photographer. You'll know you stumbled upon it when you see a circle of well-kept bushes. There's a small path leading inside to the eerie memorial.

Joel Kubicki, Jr.: Such a beautiful cemetery. Always a favorite to visit on a nice day outside. I have been here a half dozen times and still have not discovered all the unique memorials. This cemetery is always a nice place to visit. For some reason, it is always on a rainy day that I happen to stop by. Springtime is always a great time to visit; so many cherry blossoms.

Henry Mesias Jr.: One of the best cemeteries you will ever visit. The Mausoleums are plentiful and this place is just incredibly peaceful. Paul Tully's grave wins top prize for creativity. A chair, with a coffee cup and a newspaper that has the front headline of Bill Clinton winning the presidential election back in the 90's. Visit in the fall when all the leaves are changing color.

Katie Willard: Beautiful cemetery where many big personalities are buried, including Alice Roosevelt, Gore Vidal, and what feels like all owners of the Dupont Mansions. Also home to beautiful sculptures like "Grief."

Mark McGrath: Home of what has been called the greatest work of American sculpture ever created, the Adams monument by Augustus Saint Gaudens. While he never named it -- and said that had he done so, he would have called it "The Peace That Passeth Understanding" -- it has often been called "Grief", supposedly based on a description of it attributed to Mark Twain (it has also been called "Peace" or "Nirvana"). Nearby is another noteworthy bronze by Gutzon Borglum (who is better known for Mt. Rushmore), "Rabboni", depicting Lazarus walking out of his tomb. A number of other noteworthy sites are listed on a map available at the church office.

Graff Corby: The staff are so helpful and knowledgeable about the history of the cemetery! A beautiful place for family members to rest peacefully eternal! Thanks so much!

j craig: Peaceful and Beautiful. But it's not a Park so please don't go there walking your Dog and exercising its disrespectful because it's a sacred place and they will tell you to leave!

Kevin Spann: Grounds are well manicured and the staff is friendly. Ver peaceful and quiet surroundings.

Arlington National Cemetery: what do users think?


Ashok Patel: Arlington National Cemetery is the sacred resting place for those 400,000 veterans who gave ultimate sacrifice for the country. Veterans of all major wars fought by United States are buried here, including two US Presidents. There is lots of walking involved in the cemetery sprawled in 620 acres. Please wear good walking shoes. Alternatively, you can take a tram tour with historical interpretation. This was the home of the George Washington’s family before. The Tomb of the Unknown Soldier is very moving marble memorial and one of the highlights of the cemetery. The Changing of the Guards take place every half an hour here which is a sobering experience. There is a grave site of President John F Kennedy here. The Memorial of Arboretum is very beautiful with green gardens. There is so much to see here so it is advisable to plan your trip in advance and decide what do you want to see. Every US citizen must visit here and honor our heroes.

Don Ora9111: What can I say that has not been said. As a veteran I had tears in my eyes watching the changing of the guard. This place represents so much more than a place to bury the dead. Each military member can sacrifice their life in their course of duty and it affects alll those close to that person. To lay down your life is the ultimate sacrifice. I give thanks to those that died for our freedom and their family. The grounds are immaculate. The memorials are moving. General Lees home was interesting. It was nice to take the tram that you can hop off as long as you please and just catch the next one. This place must be explored so allow plenty of time to visit. And the next time you meet a service person thank them for their service. Arlington is a must see when visiting Washington D.C.

Ryan Bibler: A visit to the national cemetery is a must for every American. We took our kids there today and explored the grounds for a few hours. The number of military buried there is incredible. The grounds are beautifully maintained. Highly recommended for everyone to visit at least once.

H Hosier: Somber yet awe-inspiring place to visit. It reminds you not only of our history as a country, but also all those whose lives it has taken to have our country. There is parking on-site. It is $3 an hour with a max of $12. It is also super easy to take the Metro and walk there. We recommend the trolley system for getting around Arlington unless you have wonderful shoes, good health and a lot of time. You are able to get on and off at some of the different spots. But you also may not see everything you want that that either. There were restrooms at every spot we stopped in the trolley. There are funerals and services held most days so be aware that areas may be closed off and be respectful of those who may be grieving. Also as with most things in the DC area, be prepared to go through security upon arrival.

Desiree Shalley: What a wonderful experience! We took our sons, 17 & 18. It was such a great opportunity for them to truly realize the history of our armed forces and their sacrifices. The changing of the guard in conjunction with the history and donations from other countries. over the years, really brought home that we aren’t alone in our losses and our pain. Beautiful tribute! We were truly surprised by how clean everything was. The headstones were immaculate! Even the oldest ones! Also was truly humbled at the amount of reverence in a place that had THOUSANDS of tourists! There were 24 funerals that day. Amazing to watch that kind of reverence in a tourist spot. Our tour guide, Beverly, was outstanding! She was kind, knowledgeable, and you could tell she really enjoyed her job. My husband and I both ran into her separately at the end of the day and discovered we had both told her what an amazing job she had done. Truly appreciate her!

Jake Laird: As a vet, walking through Arlington feels like walking through hallowed ground. The cemetery is kept in immaculate condition and the staff were very professional. The tours were informative, and noteworthy locations are easy to find and access. Make sure you're wearing comfortable shoes for the considerable walking you'll do, and respect this place and those who rest here.

Sean Morris: A wonderful place to visit. My last visit was more than 30 years ago. I visited with my youngest son and wife who had never been here before. I had not seen the memorial to those who died aboard the USS Maine. My great grandfather worked on raising the Maine after it was sunk. That, along with the Tomb of The Unknown Soldier were highlights for us.

Mariah: Even if you do not have loved ones burried here, it is an amazing place to visit. Unfortunately I forgot my mask so I couldn't go in the main visitor center, but I did take a 2 mile walk around the cemetery. The parking garage costs $3 per hour, so keep that in mind. We arrived kind of late in the afternoon and we were looking for my great great grandfather, but unfortunately they were working on the roads in front of his section so we were unable to see his grave. They also have maps located around the cemetery or you can use their free app to see the map or look up specific graves. I will definitely be back to check out the other parts of the cemetery I was unable to see.

Rebekah Diaz: The cemetery was beautiful, and the Visitors center was well equipped with bathrooms and small museum. If it is raining, make sure to bring good shoes & an umbrella. Make sure to take the time to see the changing of the guards.

Fill-up Prior: I visited Washington DC in 2017 while attending AAPM conference and took many pictures during this time. I spent one day at Arlington National Cemetery reflecting on the sacrifice those service personal made four our country. I watched the changing of the guard several times. Enjoy!

Big Bus Tours Washington DC: what do users think?


C.B. Ballew: Loved the Night Tour! Pick a day when the weather is in the low 70’s - it was perfect! The driver was really nice and helpful. The route the bus takes is organized so that you see a Georgetown and buildings that you need to see in the light before the sun goes down. Then you travel to the Lincoln Memorial and the Reflecting Pool as night falls. Perfect!! Take this tour - no downsides at all.
Response: C.b. Ballew, reviews like this give us motivation and help us ensure we provide high-quality care.

Ashley Beth: Fabulous tour and a really fun and informative way to see the DC area! The signage and pickup locations were clearly marked so we knew right where to go (to get on the bus and at any of the drop-off points as well). They had headphones for our family of five and the info on the narration was interesting, relevant, and entertaining. The bus departed on time and returned on time. Ms. Gale was an outstanding tour guide and she knew all the fun, quirky tidbits of information that made our night tour of the DC area extra special. Highly recommend!
Response: Thank you Ashley! So informative and helpful. We loved having your family on board with us!

Holli Allen Magill: What a fabulous experience. These friendly and very accommodating people really go out of their way to make sure you have the best experience. Frederick was so kind and helpful.. Our bus driver even dropped us right at our hotel! Thanks for a great time, definitely recommend this tour.
Response: We are so happy you enjoyed the experience. Thank you for pointing out Frederick's service to your group. He is one of the groups of stars that shine bright for us. Please come back and visit with us again!

Roger & Ashley Freese: This is one of the best experiences I have had in DC in the many years I've been visiting. Ms. Gayle was amazing and gave us plenty of time to snap good photos as well as take in the scenery. It's really amazing the amount of growth the area has seen through Georgetown and Reston as well as the additions in D.C.
Response: Roger and Ashley; Thank you for sharing these wonderful photos. It’s so lovely to see our guests thriving and sharing their experiences here! Take care!

Samantha Carp: None of our busses had AC at the bottom and I really wish they drove threw the Arlington cemetery like I thought but they just pull up & drop you off. Then they was 45mins late picking a stop up & my mother almost missed her flight because we expected to be back by our car in time to drop her off and I tried contacting the Big bus company but they said there was nothing they could do & didn't know why it was late.
Response: Hi Samantha Carp thank you for taking the time to leave us your honest feedback.

Jamie Lowe: We had a 2 day pass and evening tour. All experiences were great! Highly recommend evening tour. A beautiful glimpse of the city and all its landmarks. Staff was friendly and helpful. Gregory at Spy Museum stop was super friendly and entertaining. A shout out to Romero who remembered my grandson at every stop he saw us…both days! Romero made him feel like he had a friend in an unfamiliar place. Great experience for us!
Response: Jamie Lowe, we are so pleased you enjoyed your visit to Big Bus Tours Washington D.C.!

Jodie Martin: We have used Big Bus Tours in several cities throughout the US and have never been disappointed! DC tour was fantastic! You have to keep in mind DC can have closures for different reasons so just download the app and check to see if any events are happening and if there is a slow doen for pickup. You can literally watch the buses on the app. Some stops may be closed for sifferent reasons, again, doenload the app it will tell you. All employees are so friendly and very helpful! Gregory was very upbeat, friendly, and just a top notch nice man. We watched him stop traffic for a girl on crutches who was trying to cross the street. Night tour is a MUST!! You see several different things that aren't on the day hop on hop off. It includes a stop at the Lincoln monument and the entire city is beautiful at night. We were lucky enough to have Ms. Gale for our night tour and she was the best!!! Lots of fun and very entertaining! We will definitely be recommending to others for their visits and will continue using big bus tours!
Response: Jodie! Your pictures are fabulous! What courage to place your vision on this forum. Thanks for the encouraging feedback. Please refer us to family and friends. We appreciate your support!

Miranda: I bought the Groupon that included hop on and hop off for 48 hours and a night ride tour! Worth every penny! Easy to use. You go to one of the stops to have them print your tickets and then you can start riding. Download the app because you can see where the buses are in real time. We waited on more than 20 minutes at a stop for another bus to arrive. The bus wasn’t crowded at all. They supply headphones to listen to a recording about the monuments as the bus passes them. The night tour was awesome!! Easiest way to see the parts outside of Washington DC such as the pentagon, Georgetown, downtown Arlington. Be sure to tip your driver!! 💵
Response: Miranda: We are so grateful for your experience. We especially appreciate the detailed information you left here. It was a pleasure to read your kind review. Take care and we look forward to seeing you again.

Mack Ivy: Our tickets were purchased Monday for Thursday night tour and said "meeting time 07:45 PM" and we arrived in line before that. Gregory was talking at front of the line, but us at the back could not hear him. I had my hand up for several minutes to ask him to repeat what he was saying but he indicated that he would answer me later. Later never came, and after several busses were full at the top, Gregory finally spoke to us at the end of the line and told us to return tomorrow. We are leaving town tomorrow, so that was not an option. He told us to sit on the bottom of the bus. I can post some very disappointing photos at ground level with cars in the way or monuments on the other side of the bus and passenger heads in the way. Our bus Dionte did his best to make the most of a situation that he did not create. This was my son's only chance to see the monuments at night and I don't know how the BigBus management can make it up to us since they obviously overbooked the busses and our views were blocked throughout the tour.
Response: Mack Ivy, we pride ourselves on providing exceptional service, so we are disappointed to hear that your visit with us was anything less than satisfactory. With the unprecedented concert and last minute security plan reveal, we were forced to close last minute. If we had known this prior to, we certainly would not have sold tickets or promoted service. We attempted to run as long as we could until local authorities shut down the roads. Thank you for the feedback.

Greg Burkett: Vida was a great tour guide on our bus. She took family photos of us and gave us tips when asked of DC food and sites.
Response: Greg!!! These photos are absolutely beautiful. You have a real gift! Thank you for allowing us to be a part of your wonderful experience with your family. Vida is a true professional in our employ. We are glad to have her!!

Big Bus Tours Washington DC Visitor Center: what do users think?


Delaney Gellert: Such a cool way to explore all around DC and lets you see a lot in 1-2 hours. Getting on was somewhat confusing and you might not be with your family altogether since there are not assigned spots. The audio is okay but gives you a lot of information for when you are near tourist spots. There was only one hop off spot at the Lincoln Memorial but it is not for long so its more to stretch your legs and see the bottom of the monument. I recommend going more at night time because it nice to see the sunset on DC and was a lot cooler for when you are going in the summer time :)

Kayla Kirkpatrick: Ms. Gale was a great driver and made sure we all had a safe and enjoyable trip! My parents and I loved our trip and would definitely recommend big bus if you want a scenic route around the city!

D'Andrea Wright: GREG was so awesome! He was funny, organized and gave us lollipops. The bus ride was also fun! However, the entire right side of the bus didn't have working audio, so I missed out on all of the historical information and it was super cold.

nailah morris: Love the concept of the tour! Make sure you plan accordingly so you can see all the major sights! Also listening to the headphones are a great idea they give you a lot of information! John Dickey was such a sweet fantastic driver! Overall a great experience!

Patrick Billerman: There are several things that come to mind after using big bus tour today in Washington DC. First off the buses are designed with uncomfortable hard plastic seats. They also have plug in earbuds for you so you can listen to the commentary that has been pre-recorded. Some of the commentary is too early and some of the commentary is too late since we passed the item they were speaking about. The first go around we try to get on a bus and it was very difficult at the 10 stop of the tour route. While the busses come every 15 minutes we could not got on the first one at 11am after we waited 15 minutes for it to come, we had to stand there for another 15 minutes for the next bus. I’m just glad the weather was nice. When we finally got on a bus we had to sit In the lower seats since they have limited open air seats. These lower seats on these buses have a very bad sight lines to the monuments around Washington DC. On our last bus that we hopped on we had to sit downstairs since there were no seats upstairs in the cool air. The driver never put on air-conditioning so we were very warm and uncomfortable on the bottom level. We got off of at the next stop and walk to where we wanted to go. Don’t even get me started on that app that doesn’t work.

Ganeshan Venkatesha: Contrary to my belief, I had best experience while making a trip between Vienna Metro and New York on 18th and 21st. I travelled in Bus for the first time in 30 years in the US. First it was very well organized. It was punctual. Inspite of many road constructional delays, the bus driver tried to maintain punctuality. I was very impressed with the driver whose name I do not know. . He is tall black very well built. He was so disciplined and professional. He never indulged in talking nor did he waste time in stops. He just stopped for 12 minutes for a single short break. Never applied breaks suddenly. The drive was so smooth at consistent speed. All in all I would prefer bus ride instead of a driving in car. The only inconvenience was that I could not reserve seats even 15 days earlier. First come first served appears good but hurts those who plan early. Hope the bus reserves at least 25% of seats for advance reservation. That would be a very good thing. Ganeshan Centreville VA

Pippela Pam: We purchased the deluxe ticket + night tour which was well worth the price. The narrators all had different levels of knowledge about DC which made for interesting rides, even if we had been by the same place. All the staff from drivers to ticket sellers were awesome! For the ticket price you can get on and off for 2 days which was a great way to get around the city. We went on the boat, Madame Tussands and the night tour which was gorgeous and loved that we all were able to use the upper deck to see the sites. We highly recommend using Big Bus tours and will definitely use again when available at other cities or when we are in DC again.

Alla Kotlyarova: It can only be good if you hop on the bus at the stop number 1 and don't leave the bus. I purchased a deluxe ticket that comes with a night tour and a 2-day tour. I got to use the night tour only. I couldn't find the bus for the day tour at the designated stops. The bus didn't stop twice on those stops, even though they saw Mr. I did city sightseen bus in NYC and it was great! Lots of busses which come frequently. This big bus in DC was horrible. If I knew, I would just purchased a night tour with no stops.

Ameet Sandhu: Tour is decent though I wish there was a live tour guide not an audio recording. Also the buses are old and outdated I wish there were outlets for charging. The staff could also be more friendly.

Latoya Fletcher: We purchased the red line tours...which I thought was a good enough for my group...it started at Union station...we we're lucky to have decided to do our tour on a Sunday as we were lucky to get free parking on the street and more importantly if the town was that busy I would not want to see a week day. We hoped to start the tour as they opened .. but finding the place took us some time so we lost 2 hrs...we had to move fast through the various stop and we could not come off at most, we choose a few and we still had to run to catch the last bus.
