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.

“You have to be humbled.”
Reviewed 6 March 2012

Just the magnitude and the knowledge that every one here died for their country is humbling. Then there's the eternal flame on Kennedy's grave and the tomb of the unknown soldier. Just amazing.

Reviewed 5 March 2012

“Somber yet amazing !”
Reviewed 5 March 2012

Lots of walking, but worth it. Changing of the Guards is amazing, as is seeing JFK gravesite. Not so much for very young children.

“Moving”
Reviewed 3 March 2012

You will be amazed at the size of this cemetery = so many having given their lives. If you can go for the changing of the guard at the top of the cemetery it is well worth the visit.

When we were there there was a funeral with full military honours of a serviceman lost in duty - a very moving experience. One of the best visits for Washington
