Visiting JFK’s final resting place | thepupdiary.com

23 Nov

The 624 acre cemetery, Arlington National Cemetery, is dog friendly. We headed there on a dreary day to take a long walk and visit gravesites. On this 50th anniversary of JFK’s assassination, we remember our walk in the rain and the prayer our mom said at his gravesite. Over 400,000 American servicemen and famous Americans are buried at the cemetery. The cemetery is open year round and well-behaved and leashed pups are invited to walk the grounds. It’s a beautiful place to visit if you tour the Washington, DC area.

It’s the season for spooky and scary FUN! Over the summer we visited two ghost towns out west. Find a ghost town near you!

Pups are also welcome at many cemeteries, which can be great places for walks and history lessons. Earlier this year we toured Arlington National Cemetery in the Washington, DC area. Leashed dogs are welcome to tour the cemetery and see the famous sites. We have also visited many beautiful cemeteries in Vermont and recently on Block Island. Permanently New Yorkers was a recommended book to find burials of the famous and infamous in New York state. The Sleepy Hollow Cemetery is on our list!

So we aren’t actually going to visit any creepy haunted houses! But we will attend some fun upcoming doggy parties with haunted house decorations! Etsch Farms will welcome pups at their corn maze on November 2. Pups on the Runway will feature spooky decor at their October 25 event. And we’ll also check out the Central Park Pumpkin Fest on October 26.
