Quick Trip From the Airport

My husband wondered how we would find it once we got to the cemetery. You can see it immediately when you turn in. This is definitely a must if you appreciate Jimi.

First off, I'll just say that if you're a Jimi Hendrix fan, this is a must do on your Seattle area itinerary. The memorial/tribute was very beautifully done & is well maintained in honor of the legend. It would probably be best to visit on a weekday when it's a bit less crowded. There is a parking lot at the... More

I was really glad to visit Jimi's gravesite while in the area. It is in a very quite well maintained area. I was worried maybe his gravesite would be cluttered with stuff but it really wasn't. It was very peaceful and quite beautiful.

It was beautiful-physically, and all the mementos that fans have left. The flowers were nice and the memorial structure was visually pleasing.

Although I was never a huge Jimi Hendrix fan, it was touching to see this memorial for him. There were even handwritten notes left there for him. It is a beautiful place, well kept and peaceful. A lovely tribute.

Well worth the short drive outside of Seattle. Especially for fans, a beautiful memorial and well kept, lots of lip stick kisses on the pictures of Jimi, and also some guitar pics left behind :)

Renton is about in the way from SEA airport to Seattle downtown, do give a chance to make a quick stop to check Jimi Hendrix graveyard in Greenwood Memorial. If you are a fan, you cannot loose this attraction. You can drive inside to the cemetery and read the songs all over the grave and relax. If in a hurry,... More

Great tribute to a talented musician gone from this earth way too soon. Worth the time and effort to go here.

The new structure is a vast improvement as a memorial to the guitar god. It is easy to find once you arrive at the cemetery. The structure replaced a simple plaque in the ground enscribed with his name and a few electric guitars probably about 8 years ago. It resides in a suburb of SE Seattle, probably a 25-minute drive...

We were visiting Seattle and traveling to Portland, OR and looking for side trips along the way. So glad we took the time to find this site. I would say I am a casual fan of Jimi Hendrix, but found the grave site and tribute moving. When we went, we had the site all to ourselves. This was during the... More
