This cemetery is relatively large and can be a bit confusing to navigate. However, the place is perfect for someone looking for fresh air, peace and quiet, a picnic etc. Definitely not a spooky cemetery.

Garfields tomb is a wonderful piece of architecture with a fabulous view from the top and the Wade (Tiffany) Chapel is fabulous beyond words. Visit during open hours to see inside both. The gardens and other tombs and grave markers are all works of art.

What a beautiful Cemetary. It is ironic how calming such a stressful place could be. If you get free time, spend it strolling this iconic place. Try to find the oldest tombstone and in doing so you will visit the graves of many famous people from actors to presidents and more. Clevelands who's who of graves.

Great must see, be careful because getting there is kind of through the hood and kind of around it all is the hood. Once you're there however you'll be Ok. Don't however, get lost in the neighborhoods around there. Ok, sorry about all that lead in, Once inside great things to see like many of the Rockefellor family and many... More

While visiting family my Son In-Law said that we needed to check out this cemetery. There are lots of grave of historical people. The day we were they they had closed access to most of the mausoleums ahd been closed for the winter. We will be back in the spring and will return.

Lakeview Cemetery is more like a park than the usual cemetery. It has the grave sites and mausoleums of some famous people and it also has Tiffany windows. It is on a slightly rolling landscape with lots of trees. In the summer it is a walk in a park.

When someone suggested I visit a cemetary I thought they were crazy. I WAS WRONG. Right next to Little Italy is a Cleveland gem. Between April and November there are volunteers and maps available - and Garfield's monument is open. A trip to the lower level of the monument is where you will find his final resting place. Then a... More

Don't let the name cemetery scare you from visiting this beautiful well-maintained park. It is one of the best places to visit while in Cleveland and offers you many attractions. It is a beautiful park with some graded hiking passages through many historical burial sites for the who's who of the Cleveland society of the 19th century. Of particular note... More

I visited Lake View cemetery on a warm Sunday afternoon and it was the perfect escape from the hustle and bustle of the surrounding neighborhoods. As others have mentioned, the Garfield monument is spectacular and the guide was both friendly and informative. Likewise the Wade chapel with its extraordinary "river of life" and "river of death" mosaics along each wall,... More
