Essentially, Tolkien explains that for each age that Middle Earth enters, the less magical and mythological elements exist in the region. Instead, the region is slowly becoming a realm of men, and so the Undying Lands serves as a sanctuary that preserves the last remaining elements of myth and magic.
He was allowed to go because he had the best friends ever, Gandalf Mithrandir, Lady Galadriel, and of course the Ring bearers, Bilbo, Frodo and Sam. Apparently the “rules” regarding who could sail to the Undying Lands were not absolute.
Originally Answered: Why was frodo allowed to go to valinor? As a reward for his sacrifice he is granted a journey to the Undying Lands where he can heal his wounded body and spirit. This grace is granted also to Sam and Bilbo, both for their sacrifices and to provide companionship for Frodo.
And after their marriage, both Aragorn and Arwen are mortal. Arwen, therefore, could not set foot in the Undying Lands without special permission. So unfortunately, she would not go there, unlike Legolas, after Aragorn’s passing. She would simply choose to follow her husband to wherever he would go.
After Aragorn’s death, Legolas made a ship in Ithilien and left Middle-earth to go over the sea. His strong friendship with Gimli prompted Legolas to invite him to accompany him to the Undying Lands, making him the first and only Dwarf to do so. He was never seen again in Middle-earth.

Tauriel was banished from Mirkwood by Thranduil, so what happens to Tauriel after the Battle of Five Armies remains unknown, although actress Evangeline Lilly stated in an interview that Tauriel returns to Mirkwood.
Tauriel is an elf that was completely made up for “The Hobbit” movies to “bring some more female energy,” according to Entertainment Weekly. Legolas, who also wasn’t in the original story (as son of Thranduil he could’ve been present, though), is interested in Tauriel.
