One of the most beautiful cemeteries Ive ever visited. Its so overwhelming at times, it moves you. It is breathtaking. These men and women are the reason we live in the best country in the world. Its very very large, they have tours, trolly service or you can walk. You can only drive if you have a family member buried... More

I recently toured the cemetery with 49 middle shcoolers and chaperones. It was a moving experience for all. It is hard to believe that there are over 430,000 buried there with an average of 20-30 burials daily. The changing of the guard at the Tomb of the Unkown Soldier is a definite must see as well as JFK's burial plot... More

Highlight to be able to visit on Veteran's Day. While a sombre place to visit it is well worth dedicate 1/2 to a full day to visit.

Breathtaking. Beyond description. The most difficult and most beautiful experience. If you are visiting Arlington National Cemetery and are blessed enough to be in the presence of a military service, show the respect and keep your distance. Remember this is a REAL cemetery not just a tourist site.

This is a must see for every American. The tour is a little pricey for what it is but it is the best way to get around and to have an appreciation for the size of this place. The tour guides are very knowledgeable and pleasant.

This is definitely the hallowed grounds of those that gave us the freedoms that we enjoy. We watched a funeral that was done with such precision respect for the one being laid to rest. A caisson carrying the coffin was being pulled by horsemen with one riderless horse. A military band played at the end of the procession to the... More

Went to visit to help orient me for planning my mother's and father's burials. The staff were very friendly and helpful with my planning. The property is meticulously maintained (Dept of Army), and there are staff around the property to help you with directions or information, and to maintain a solemn tone, since scads of tour buses abound. However, because... More

I had visited DC a number of times but never took the opportunity to visit Arlington National Cemetery. It's well worth your trip. We walked around on foot very easily and saw many of the more prominent figures' (such as President Kennedy's) graves as well as Arlington House. We also watched the changing of the guard ceremony, which is a... More
