“Semper Fi”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 July 2012

I have visited DC before but this time I got to see this Parade. It was great! These men and women of the United States Marines based in DC are wonderful. From the Marines standing assisting with crowd control to the music, drills and precision of the Corp was magnificent! I say try to see the parade when it happens while you are in the area. It is on Tuesdays this summer.

“One of the most inspiring and memorable DC experiences”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 July 2012

If you are in DC on a Friday night, be sure to attend the sunset parade at the Marine Barracks in DC. Moving, inspiring, beautiful and awesome display of military skill and dedication.

“second time seeing it”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 July 2012

Second time seeing it and was even better than the first time.

great dedication to duty!!!!!

fanatstic to see the bands and the marching and the rifle drill team

best to set in the bleachers facing the field!!, and if you are by yourself or one other, and they give you a south seat, just non chalantly walk to where the seat face the field, just do not set in the middle section kind of VIP!!!

you can catch the metro to esatern station and about a block and half walk.

there are some small resaturants if you go early, to eat at


go online and request tickets ahead of time, as soon as you know you are going, they are free

they provide water to drink

“Precision”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 July 2012

For anyone who appreciates precision drills/marching and great music. Very moving with the Iwo Jima statue in the background-Marines paying tribute to their own.

“Most impressive”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 July 2012

During the summer, the Marine Barracks performs a Sunset Parade at Arlington Cemetary on Tuesday evenings. It is most impressive. Our grandkids sat in awe watching the silent drill team and listening to the band. A real treat most people don't get to experience.
