Attended a funeral here and found it to be one of the most beautiful cemetary's I've ever seen. The monument for President Garfield is incredible.

Worth a visit if you're nearby. The attendant was very knowledgable and helpful. Great view from the balcony in good weather.

Not only can you visit Garfield's memorial, you can see the graves of prominent Clevelanders, even Eliott Ness. It's a beautiful place to walk or jog. They also have a full range of tours.

What a jewel of the city. Lots of famous, infamous, and just plain people(including some family and friends) buried in this garden setting that has a Tiffany Windowed chapel in the front and a dam in the middle.

This is a beautiful cemetery and hosts a lot of history. A president is buried here, it has a beautiful chapel with Tiffany glass, Cleveland's history can be learned here and you realize what an impact this town had on the industrialization of this country. It's a park like setting and you see people bicycling, walking and just relaxing. Take... More

What a beautiful cemetery. Such a lot of historical monuments. The chapel is so beautiful. A must see if you are in Cleveland. Right down the street from Little Italy where we were going to have lunch, but there was absolutely no place to park, so we just drove back to our hotel.

This is by far the most beautiful cemetary ive ever been to. Its has so many trees and lovely views. I sat right in front of John Rockefeller's grave and it was so peaceful. Great to walk around and just take in nature. Must see when visiting Cleveland.

Lakeview Cemetery is serene, beautiful place for an afternoon stroll. The Jeptha Wade Chapel is a MUST see, as well as Garfield's monument. My family and myself like to visit and read the tombstones. Before or after visiting, head down the hill to Little Italy for Mama santas pizza and Corbo's Bakery!

Definitely feels a little weird giving a cemetery a 5 star review...but it is gorgeous. Not only that, it is a great place to run. While training for a half marathon, I found great terrain here. As a history lover, running by the tombs of John Rockefeller and James Garfield was very special.

Lake View Cemetery is located between some of the best sites on the East side of Cleveland. Its a great side stop following great shopping and dining at Beachwood and Coventry. Or on your way to Wade Oval and all the Major Museums in Cleveland. The cemetery has signs to each major "attraction" and maps may be picked up at... More
