A landmark full of history and beauty. Pack a picnic (seriously) and spend a sunny afternoon at Lake View. Tour the Garfield Monument and the Wade Chapel. Visit in early spring to see the field of daffodils. And enjoy the many breathtaking statues that grace people's graves.

This is Cleveland's biggest (285 acres) and best museums. You have to check out the Tiffany bedecked Wade Chapel. The windows and tiles are absolutely magnificent. Even more amazing is the byzantine Garfield Monument. It was decorated by the same man who restored St Marks Basilica in Venice! The grounds are vast and lovely with the crypts of the great... More

Lakeview does an excellent job of showcasing Cleveland history. Plus, the setting is beautiful. On any given day, you see people walking, jogging and visiting this gem near University Circle. It is also a Presidential Cemetery, as you can visit the gravesite and monument to President James Garfield.

While it is a cemetery, it might as well be a park. The area is huge and features all sorts of landscaping. You will need a map of the cemetery (print it off their website) in order to find your way around. There are graves so old that the writing on the flat rock is worn off and there are... More

While our daughter was growing up, often when I had car-pool duty driving to downtown Cleveland, I would detour and drive the kids though the cemetary! The Wade Chapel is a must see (but not always open) The kids we ALL impressed with th gold leaf, alabaster lanterns and Tiffany window. I suppose that I was known as the "Wierd... More

Aside from the fact that this cemetery is just beautiful with rolling hills, lawns, mature trees it is historically so interesting. President James A. Garfield is buried here (20th president) as is John D. Rockefeller. In fact there is a slew of millionaires buried on "Millionaires Row". The lovely Wade Chapel was designed & executed by Tiffany. Well worth a... More

I booked the Sunday 1:00 trolley tour since I wanted to find out where some graves were and learn some history about some famous people. We went to the Garfield Tomb, passed Eliott Ness, Rockefeller and heard a talk inside the Wade Chapel which was very beautiful. It's a lovely ride around the cemetery. Before I left Cleveland I drove... More

The cemetery is hilly but pretty - especially when the daffodils are up. It has the graves of John D. Rockefeller and Elliot Ness. But the main attraction is Wade Chapel. Unless the family is there, it is open for tours. The interior was done by Tiffany and it is worth seeing. When you are done there, check out the... More

There are many interesting headstones here as well as a few famous ones (Eliott Ness, John D. Rockefelle; members of President Lincoln's cabinet, Civil War generals and Revolutionary War soldiers, ). There is a chapel with Tiffany stained glass in it. There is a memorial for former president, James Garfield. There is a lake, picnic tables and benches for sitting.... More
