a number of famous people are buried here. You can walk or drive(if time is limited) or do a combo. PRetty setting. Visit the information building to get a map and find out more information. Fall with the changing colors is very pretty.
Excellent place to walk, look at beautiful trees (with name tags), birds, and famous people's monuments. Visitor center at entrance with knowledgeable/helpful staff. Tower with great view of Boston and Cambridge. Drive through or #71 or 73 bus from Harvard Sq.

This is not to be missed and... More
