Veterans of every American war from the Revolution to the country's most recent conflicts are buried at Arlington, which was officially declared a military cemetery in 1864. Among the more than 260,000 dead are three unidentified service members, buried at the Tomb of the Unknowns, and John F. Kennedy, whose gravesite is marked by an eternal flame.

Thought provoking! A must do!

Seeing the rows of headstones reminds me of the huge debt small countries like Ireland owe to the U.S. . Naturally, for me the plot of J.F. K. was very emotive on the day. My... read more

I never imagined it was so large. JFK's grave is impressive. I saw the changing of the guard at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier.

Seeing the rows of headstones reminds me of the huge debt small countries like Ireland owe to the U.S. . Naturally, for me the plot of J.F. K. was very emotive on the day. My mother who passed away recently, was distraught in 1963 when she heard the news. The whole household sunk emotionally for the rest of the day.... More

I am drawn to Arlington because my niece is buried in Section 60. Her father was placed in the same area just last year. I enjoy the extreme quiet and peacefulness that surrounds you. Section 60 has trees that have really grown since my last visit. The whole cemetery is a beautiful reminder of those who have given the ultimate... More

Easy parking and free entrance Started walking with map provide at guest service and turned around to take trolley tour. It was so hot and we had a small child with us. Had to wait a half hour before we got on trolley but thank goodness we took it. Perfect way to get around and see the highlights. So humbling,... More

We went to visit Arlington with my husband the past week. He wanted to see Kennedy's gravesite and the Tomb with the changing of the guard. My husband is 100 % disabled and can not walk very far so he was in his wheelchair which I had to push. Arlington is not wheelchair friendly! Then we were told, that we... More

The grounds are amazing. Extremely well kept! They have maps available and all the roads are clearly marked. We had no problem finding points of interest including JFK's final resting place and the Tomb of The Unknown Soldier. Seeing the Tomb guarded and what they do to watch over it is simply moving. Just a great, sobering experience. Parking isn't... More

It is interesting to visit, if you have time and looking for patriotism of americans. Cemetery of marine's militars, as Generals, Majors, etc. It is nice place with trees and gardens. And the view of The Capital is excellent.

Must see location for visitors to DC. A lot of walking, but you appreciate the sacrifices all of these individuals after visiting.

We decided to walk rather than take a trolley tour and found this to be a very humbling experience to see so many graves. You realise how many have made sacrifices to allow us to lead our lives the way they are. The cemetery is kept in a wonderful state which shows the respect deserved.

The tram is like a hop-on, hop off. It will drop you at the Kennedy gravesite (Robert and Ted are close-by), the Tomb of the Unknown soldier (be sure to watch the changing of the guard ceremony from right side of stands), and the Robert E. Lee house. The grave of Audie Murphy, the most decorated WWII soldier, is near... More
