It bring it home how much the Kennedy family has given for our country. I think it is an honor to be able to see the flame.

Another must see when in Arlington. If you're intrigued by Camelot, stop here. J.F.K. picked this burial spot and Jackie insisted upon it on his death.

If you do a bus tour at Arlington this is a stop. Must see if visiting Arlington. Can also see a view of D.C. The bus tour at Arlington is only $13.50 definitely recommend taking it.

Worth seeing. I am old enough to remember when he was assassinated. Interesting to see the views and places I saw on TV during his funeral. The eternal flame was one of the things at the gravesite that was a feature to be seen.

A very well maintained cemetery. The reverence at JFK's grave is remarkable even all these years later. We met a member of the army responsible for a gun salute on the day. He was very helpful and provided lots of information to those gathered there.

The best thing about this is that it's so plain for someone of JFK's stature. It's obviously very busy with all the tours stopping by but we managed to get a couple of minutes where there was just the 2 of us so be patient.

A lovely location for burial. Nice to see. Also located in a sunny position. Be prepared to be hot. Bring water.

How often do you get to visit the grave a president? This grave was on our small list of things we wanted to see and I was happy we did. There’s nothing exciting about it. Just a beautiful grave site for a family we all...More

First time here, not only JFK, RFK and Jackie. Always a large crowd, just be respectful and wait for people to move, they will.

No there is no cost. There are many other graves worth visiting as well. It is a very reverent place to be.

If you are very fit you certainly can walk anywhere especially the cemetery, but if you have any doubts look for transportation. It can be very warm depending on the season.
