It was a spectacular grave, but nothing more than that. Renton's a fairly long trip from downtown Seattle or Bellevue, so unless it's on the way, wouldn't rush. It was kind of cool to be be able to say I visited it, however.

We visited to pay our respects on the way from the airport to our hotel - it's maybe a 10 minute detour off the route to downtown Seattle The day we were there, there was a gentleman with a boom box playing Jimi's music, flowers all over the memorial, fans switching out old flowers for new, and visitors paying their...

Located in the Renton Highlands, this is easy to get to and well maintained. For the music buff or those who want to check it off their rock n roll grave tour, this is worth the respectful stop. Don't mind the Purple Haze.........

Jimi's grave site is a work of art that suits the icon resting there and his family. The cemetery itself is a beautiful setting with easy access to the Hendrix grave site that doesn't intrude on others visiting their loved ones. The grave site is sprinkled with personal messages from fans and lipstick kisses to remind you that this guy... More

Despite the bad weather that day, our group was able to visit and pay respects to Jimi Hendrix, a rocker who tragically died in his prime. The memorial was wonderful, and there are plenty of people that left their own tribute in memory of Jimi Hendrix, including flowers, guitar picks, hand written notes, and one person poured some alcohol on...

That is quite the shrine for Jimi. I'm not a huge fan but the guy had talent. The site was nice. Worth seeing.

People from all over the world come here to pay tribute to Jimi Hendrix at this beautiful monument. The marble walls have engraved depictions of Jimi as well as some of the lyrics from his songs. It is a powerful statement to the loss of a very talented young man and definitely worth the trip which is only about 2... More

Peaceful site. Not a single person was there. Nicely displayed and easy drive. Flowers were blooming and the site was very clean. Being a music buff or not this is an excellent place to swing by. And the nice thing as mentioned is it's free:)

I go here every time I am in the Seattle area. The setting is really nice. It is a really calm beautifull graveyard surrounded by nature. On a nice day the view of the memorial, surrounded by purple flowers against the backdrop of Mount Rainier is just amazing.

This beautiful memorial was not in our plans but once my son discovered it was so close, we decided to visit the gravesite as he is a fan. Easy access and worth the drive.
