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.

My husband and I had the real pleasure of visiting the Jimi Hendrix memorial and gravesite in Renton, Wa just about 20 minutes from downtown Seattle. It is a beautiful memorial, tastefully constructed and it is FREE to the public and easy to access. It is a must see, even if you are not a huge Hendrix fan. I am... More

It was so peaceful. Not an elaborate cemetery. We were the only people visiting Jimi's grave that late afternoon and it brought a solitude that washed the soul. A few guitar picks had been left for the great Jimi Hendrix, other than that, just the walls with various lyrics and drawings of Jimi. We sat for a while, reading and... More

We decided to stop by Jimi Hendirx's memorial since we had a car and some time. It was pretty cool. It is in an Asian gardens and his memorial is right in the front when you pull in. We were the only ones there until another father and son pulled up. My favorite part was that there were crayons there... More

This is a very tasteful and moving monument to, arguably, the greatest rock guitarist ever. The monument is engraved with Jimi's likeness and lyrics. This is certainly a must see for Jimi fans Only about 15-20 minutes from Seattle.
