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.

Admittance is free and beyond the extensive grounds, there are free tours of the Lee House and some other areas. People sometimes forget this is a cemetery, and the staff there gets understandably irritated if people are running around or talking inappropriately or just generally...More

Visiting the cemetery due a stay in June 2016. Plan only a short walk to see J.F.K but expand the walk up to 2 hours. To see the complete cementery you should be good by foot.

The event was moving, honorable and memorable. The administration building and personnel were engaging and helpful. The place is well kept, including the bathrooms. The layout provides for ample gathering of families and the photographs tell many stories. The staff is professional.

I would like to return and take one of the tours that stop through the cemetery and also see the changing of the guard. The metro stops right at the cemetery then you can walk across the bridge to the Lincoln Memorial.

Visiting Arlington National Cemetery is a sobering experience. The rows of perfectly maintained graves serve as a reminder of the sacrifices so many have made in service of the United States. The gravesite of John F. Kennedy is a must see, as is the Tomb...More

We walked to all the main areas in this cemetery. It was a beautiful area and all the graves had an amazing final resting area. It didn't matter what angle you looked at the headstones they were all very straight in line. The whole area...More

Was here for a funeral so I am not sure but I think the cemetary itself is free but you have to pay for parking at the visitors center. Will definitely make a trip back to explore. The size and enormity of this place will...More

I don't know what Arlington House is? Lee Mansion is there but we were there for a military interment.
How do I get around the cemetery after parking in the visitors center? Is the tram the only way around?

No, you have the option to walk around if you wish. The team however is worthwhile as you are given a tour and may get off at any point.
