    What to Expect
    Spanning 624 acres (253 hectares), Arlington National Cemetery is the final resting place for many American heroes, including more than 400,000 military veterans and their families from every American conflict, starting from the Civil War.

    On this hop-on hop-off trolley, visit the most notable graves and memorials, and learn about the cemetery’s history from an onboard guide. Board the hop-on hop-off trolley at any of the designated sites (see below for a list of stops).

    Hop off to explore sites by foot and pay homage to America’s fallen heroes. Visit the Eternal Flame, where President John F. Kennedy is laid to rest beside his wife, Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis.

    Your hop-on hop-off pass is valid for one full loop, letting you take in the poignancy of Arlington National Cemetery at a relaxed pace. Trolleys depart regularly throughout the day or you can stay on for the whole loop.

    You may board the trolley at any of the following stops:
    • US Marine Corps War Memorial
    • President John F. Kennedy Gravesite
    • US Coast Guard Memorial
    • General John J. Pershing Gravesite
