Currently, the Air Force Memorial has a challenging parking situation due to the demolition of the Navy Annex buildings and parking lot. However, a parking and shuttle plan has been developed to accommodate event visitors. There is limited handicap parking at the Memorial. Additionally, the Pentagon Metro and Pentagon City Metro stops are within one mile walking distance to the Memorial.
Parking options are available in the Pentagon Overflow Parking Lot at Hayes Street, street parking along Southgate Road, and at the Sheraton Pentagon City garage for $10. Royal Trolley Tours and Signature Tours will also provide a free trolley transportation service from four locations: the Pentagon City Metro, the corner of Army-Navy Drive at the South Joyce Street ART Bus stop 42/87, the Southgate Road parking area, and the Sheraton Pentagon City Hotel at Orme Street and Columbia Pike.
The Sheraton Pentagon City will offer free parking to anyone who wishes to take advantage of their special Air Force Memorial Dinner Package which includes a pre-concert dinner option at the Potomac Restaurant and Lounge from 5pm – 7pm for $25 per person.
