First of all, you should get information about the routes that lead to Arlington and also try to get information about the public transportation facilities.
You will find many public transport facilities and Metro is one of them. Visitors from all over the America usually use Metro to get there at Arlington.
Using Metro for going to Arlington is the best option because finding parking for private vehicles at Arlington National Cemetery or National Mall area is very difficult. That is why; reaching at Arlington through Metro helps in avoiding the hassle that many face in finding the parking areas for their private vehicles.
You need to go to the Rosslyn in Virginia which is the first Metro stop which is almost six blocks away from the Iwo Jima Memorial.
However, if you do not feel comfortable using Metro then you can also use your car. You should go to the Marshall Drive and turn to the north which is around the Iwo Jima Memorial. Proceed to the north highway and follow the brown signs of directions which will lead you to Iwo Jima Memorial.
If you are going in your car then try to arrive at Iwo Jima Memorial as early in the morning as possible because you will not face any problem in finding a parking area at this early hour in the morning.
Besides getting parking, there will not be much crowd as tour busses usually arrive at noon and after their arrival, it becomes a packed area as a huge number of visitors come to see Iwo Jima Memorial every day.
Thunderstorm and rain is a routine in the weather of Arlington and you should keep a rain coat with you in order to keep yourself away from getting wet.
The Iwo Jima Memorial presents a pleasant picture as this beautiful sculpture grabs the attention of visitors and they cannot resist praising the man who is its maker.
