Veterans of every American war from the Revolution to the country's most recent conflicts are buried at Arlington, which was officially declared a military cemetery in 1864. Among the more than 260,000 dead are three unidentified service members, buried at the Tomb of the Unknowns, and John F. Kennedy, whose gravesite is marked by an eternal flame.

Take several hours to walk the grounds and just contemplate. The grounds are beautiful year-round. Great historical site but also a living memorial. President Kennedy's is a personal favorite. The changing of the guard at the Tomb of the Unknowns is unforgettable. And you are...More

This is an amazing place to visit. I would suggest that doing research before you come to get the most out of the experience. There is a change, you now have to go through security to enter the cemetery, so give yourself a few extra...More

Being from out of country, it was incredible to see the size and magnitude of the Cementary. The areas of conflict going back 200 years, to recent events really hit home. I think everyone has to stop by, pay your respects and take away the...More

Arlington cemetery is massive, beautiful and well maintained. Very impressive. We visited on a hot Sunday in July. It was busy, and way too hot to walk. The "hop on hop off trolley tour" seemed like a great way to get around the park. What...More

NO. It's part of the Cemetary. Parking would be for the Cemetery and you would have to walk it. I suggest getting the $10 ticket for the train ride throughout the cemetery. It stops right at it.

The best way to see the cemetery is to use the tram or walking. I have personal vehicle access to visit my father-in-law's grave, but always use the tram or walk when I'm exploring as we're only supposed to use our cars to... More
