Visited Arlington Cemetery in June 2018. It is an amazing cemetery, well maintained. They have shuttles which take you around and explain the area for you. The changing of the guards is amazing. Well worth the visit.

If you're in DC, you can't miss going to the Arlington Cemetery. Try to schedule your trip so you can be there for the "Changing of the Guards"

Went to my grandfather's grave. It is truly a sad and sobering place to visit. Humbling, yet a place to be cherished and honored!

We walked (quite an uphill walk) from the entrance to get to the Changing of the Guards scheduled the next hour which is a very formal, serene and ceremonious display. Going out, we passed by the JFK and family resting place.

Yes, as others have replied there is a maximum capacity challenge and the remaining number of burial sites is diminishing. One important consideration - some SECTIONS in the cemetary may have fewer or more remaining sites... More
