Tucked about 1.5 km behind Lincoln memorial is Arlington cemetary. It is within walrking distance and free entry. You can pay a small feee of about $8 pp if you want to take the tour (not recommended). Besides the tomb stones, JFK and his wifes graves are in the same area in addtional to teh tomb of the unknow soldier.... More

This is a place that everyone should visit. Cemetery is well done and maintained and provides a great tribute to our country. Visiting the Tomb of the Unknowns and watching the changing of the guards was the highlight of our trip! This is a must visit when in the Arlington area, and makes you very proud to be an American...

Everybody should visit Arlington National Cemetery. This beautiful cemetery is something to behold. Don't just visit JFK's grave - make sure you try and see the changing of the guard at theTomb of the Unknown Soldier, the memorials to both lost Shuttles and the Pan-Am Memorial. A word of warning - this cemetery is huge so I suggest you spend... More

Very nice place to visit. Everyone is very respectful and it is mind blowing how big the place actually is. Very pretty, and pictures and shows on TV don't do it justice. Nice to reflect and think about all of the people who have passed fighting and protecting our country.

Nothing prepares you for the emotion of Arlington National Cemetery. To see the commitment that these brave Men and Women gave to our Country is awe inspiring. Logistically it was easy to get around - metro stop is very convenient, the hop on hop off Bus is super. We had Folks that had trouble walking so this made the journey... More

If you love our heroes, this is a place to visit hen your in the DC area. The backdrop of DC in the background reflects our countries ability to honor its men and woman in uniform and quantifies the cost of our freedoms.

We visited one morning whilst in DC. Stop by the visitor centre first and you can pick up a guide which will show you where the memorials are which you may wish to visit. It was raining when we came however we took time to view some of the graves and memorials. Sad and moving in many ways to think... More

My friends and I decided to take the tram tour around the cemetery. It was a great tour that focused on the highlights of the cemetery. It is a narrated tour, and we were allowed to get off at certain points, such as the Kennedy burial site, Tomb of the Unknowns, and Arlington House. One can then take in each... More
