Owner description: 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.

We visited mainly to see the grave of JF Kennedy but were amazed by the serenity of the cemetery as a whole. It is a very peaceful and reflective place which is lovingly maintained.

How does one even describe the row after row of identical markers representing Americans who sacrificed during their lives for our country? From this, to the well-manicured lawns and landscaping to the changing of the guard . . . it is a must-see for any visitor to the DC area.

Arlington National Cemetery is a somber remembrance of the many that have sacrificed and is a must visit site for any American. Walk a self-guided tour with the aid of a free map from the welcome center or a guided tram tour (prices shown in attached photo). Spend some time remembering those that have served, see JFK’s grave site and eternal flame, Arlington House, the McClellan, the Tomb of the Unknowns and many other memorials in a peaceful setting with views of bustling Washington D.C. just across the Potomac River.

The majesty of Arlington is sometimes overwhelming. Row upon row of monuments to American heroes. Name after name of the wonderful patriots buried with honor. The entire experience was awe inspiring.

While on Spring Break we took the subway to visit Arlington National Cemetery. We did pay for the hop on, hop off tram tour and I would highly recommend it. Without the tram ride, we would have missed the final resting places of many. The ride was a nice break for our legs and very formative. Also be sure not to miss the changing of the guards at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier.
