A very amazing place to visit! It’s overwhelming seeing so many graves. We visited the Kennedy grave site with a beautiful eternal flame and his family beside him! The writing on the walls are very touching. His brothers graves are there to see to. There...More

A must see and hop off during the cemetery trolley tour. You will see 3 of the Kennedy family members beside JFK himself and the eternal flame at this site.

While the burial site of JFK is truly unique, you need to walk the roads in order to be humbled at the sacrifice of so many for the country we live in. These men and women were willing to give their life for the freedoms...More

President Kennedy’s grave is located near the top of Arlington. Very peaceful location surrounded by beautiful trees.

I didn't realize that Arlington Cemetery was on such a hill, so there is a lovely view also. A place that everyone thankfully seemed to be respectful of, and take a moment to take in.

Political views should be put aside when visiting here. JFK was needlessly and senselessly killed. He was the President of the USA- leader of the free world. It was a difficult time in our nation and yet this monument unites us with an eternal flame...More

This stop on the tour has JFK, Bobby and Teddy's graves. It's something that one should see in Washington DC.

If you are very fit you certainly can walk anywhere especially the cemetery, but if you have any doubts look for transportation. It can be very warm depending on the season.
