We made a short stop since it was raining lightly. The path was well maintained and there was good signage. It was a solemn spot.

JFKs grave site actually includes the gravestones of he and Jackie and two of the children. The eternal flame makes it unique.

The best way to get around the Arlington Ceremony is on their Hop-On and Off bus. Plan on some time witnessing this solemn location. It is very humbling. An American Hero.
