It may seem odd to take out of town guests to a cemetery but do not miss a visit to Lakeview Cemetery. On Mayfield Road, just up the street from all the great Italian restaurants in "Little Italy", is the Lakeview Cemetery. We visited this past weekend with out of town guests, 2 adults and two 12 year olds. We... More

Very nice monument. Beautiful view of the city when you go to the top. Being able to view the caskets was a very somber experience, especially knowing he was murdered.

If you are visiting Lakeview Cemetery, then you should tour this monument not only for the history it affords us, but for the great view it provides of Lake Erie. Be sure to see the beautiful Tiffany stained glass windows. Why not have lunch or dinner in Little Italy after touring Lakeview Cemetery? I love: Presti's almond cookies, Corbo's cassata... More

... it's a nice place to stop while you walk the cemetery to relax and get out of the sun, There are also restroom which is nice on the lower crypt level.

Didn't even cross any of my Cleveland trip planing materials, but this is a can't miss. One of the most spectacular monuments to a President I've ever seen. The man working the desk was very helpful and friendly; gave us a lot of information about Garfield. We were then able to go into the crypt and up to the top... More

Before TripAdvisor I didn't know this place even existed. Walking into the monument we were greeted by a very friendly and knowledgeable man. He told us a little about Garfield and what the pictures on the walls and windows meant. While the inside is very well kept I do have to agree with another review that said the monument needs...

Who really knows anything about Garfield? Seriously, he was only in office for a few months. Luckily, I read a great book about him, "Destiny of the Republic: A Tale of Madness, Medicine and the Murder of a President" by Candice Millard before I went. It read like a novel and was so good. It made my trip to this... More

The Garfield Monument is an awesome building. However it is falling apart and needs a major makeover. I hope there is a plan somewhere to save this building. The outside of the building is covered in something black. It needs to be sanded off. Also, at the observation deck, large pieces of the building are being held on by a... More
