The South Florida National Cemetery will never be a "tourist" attraction like Arlington National Cemetery, but the planners did a fantastic job of creating a respectful, peaceful resting place for our honored veterans.

This is a National Cemetery, and is maintained impeccably. One thing, you can't ride your bicycle into the cemetery. Although in the past I was able to, the relatively ne manager does not allow it. Says it is not a place to exercise. Strange.

This cemetery is a small replica of Arlington and beautifully maintained. Have been to a few services there and each one is given the utmost respect.
