Marine Barracks Reviews & Ratings
I loved this place. Full of culture, history, and motivation. The Friday evening ceremony was amazing and choked up during taps. Make sure to reserve your tickets in advance!! Everyone should go if you are visiting the DC area.
The Oldest Post in the Marine Corps! Fascinating history. If you ever have a chance, visit!
Semper Fidelis! To all those who served in the beloved Marine Corps, to those who are currently serving and to those who will one day step onto the yellow footprints Semper Fi and thank you for your service. I was privileged and honored to attend a night at the Marine Corps Barracks. the Oldest and most prestigious barracks in the corps. The performance of the Marines was spectacular. I rode my motorcycle across the US from Los Angeles to DC for Memorial Day and this was a HUGE Highlight of the trip. If you are a Marine, you need to visit.
Such a cool place lots of history. If you ever get a chance to go see the sunset parade in the summer time do it, you will not be disappointed.
What an amazing group of Marines!
