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... read more

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

We flew from Australia for this and it was one of those bucket list things to do for my husband (we also visited the Fender guitar factory in Corona/LA). First we found his statue on Capitol Hill and then we made our way to Renton to visit Jimi's grave and then to the Hendrix Park that fans/locals are trying to... More

This is on maps in Renton. The picture here is the only way to find it. There may be a crowd but not much of one unless it is a clear summer day.

It's so touristy now that it felt a bit disrespectful to Jimi, really. There's not a lot more to say than that. No moving experience. Just something to tick off the Seattle list, just like the Crocodile Bar...All a bit meh, sadly.

We stayed in Renton, and I mentioned we were going to the rock museum near the Space Needle to our shuttle driver. She told us about this place. Took us about 10m to get there. As everyone has said, it is a very lovely tribute to him and his family. It does not feel "weird" to write about it. This... More

I found this in a Renton Flyer & decided to make the trek. It's in a most unusual spot with a McDonald's across the street & a Vietnamese section of the cemetery within yards. I was surprised to not be the only visitor that day. Lots of photo taking, still fresh flowers at the site. Certainly worth stopping by, especially... More

This is just the heighth of weirdness, dontcha think? I mean, it's a grave, yes? (Had to "rate" it just so I could write about the sheer oddity of the experience.) I mean, what would happen if it got poor reviews? Would the "owner" strive to make "improvements?" It's pretty freakish to list a person's grave on the same page... More

who knew he ended up in Renton? My nephew lives nearby and gave me the heads up that my sixties idol was taking his dirt nap nearby. Had to go a play some air guitar and think about the old times doing Purple Haze
