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.

Both of my parents are buried here. It is a humbling experience to visit. My dad's funeral was very moving. He was a 38 year career Naval officer. Arlington provided a touching ceremony and funeral. Many thanks to Arlington for giving him the respectful send off he deserved.

Seeing the rows upon rows of graves of those who fought for the liberties we freely enjoy is a sobering experience. We had purchased tickets for the heated trolley tour and had a wonderful driver and tour guide. It would have been a blessing any day, but especially on a frigid one at the beginning of a snow storm.

There is nothing that can equal the emotional feeling which overcomes you when you visit Arlington National Cemetery. Even if you don't know anyone who is buried here you are overwhelmed with the fact that so many of the men and women who laid down their lives for us are buried here. It is particularly impressive at the holidays with... More

Although not the best time to go, it was beautiful seeing the grounds snow covered, unfortunately, when I arrived, I was told all the teams had gone out at once, for a large group, and there would not be one coming along for over an hour. Walking was not too difficult, and very moving. I especially enjoyed the changing of... More

For me this has always been a must see, it was a very spiritual experience. The grounds are very well taken care of. I could have spent an entire evening here but it was closing time so I had to go. Words can't express the beauty of Arlington, it is simply a must see for every American.

the problem that we had when we went there last weekend was that it was snowing heavily and it was unbelievably cold. We eft the Metro station, which is right at the cemetery and went to JFK,s grave and saw the eternal flame, which of course is worth seeing. We then wanted to see a lot more but were so... More

My wife and I went in early November which was a great time. It was really cold, but there was still some fall foliage. I think we got there around 4pm. We hiked straight up the hill to the Kennedy graves and then to the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier. At 5pm we caught the ringing of the bells from... More
