Hollywood Cemetery

You can do self tours or have a guide take you to all the amazing plots and graves. Much to see, but easy to get lost. 3 presidents are buried here and many more interesting sites.

Embarrassed to say, but I have lived in the suburbs for many years and not visited this spectacular and peaceful place. We decided to play tourist and visited July 4th, so the info center was closed. We learned from others to follow the blue line (we drove) and we hit all the high spots (2 presidents, scenic James River and... More

The family and I took the car ride tour through this very educational and highly interesting National Cemetery:Hollywood Cemetery,Richmond, Virginia. We made sure to pay respects to Presidents Monroe and Tyler and their families. It was worth about 2 hours of time. Roads were very narrow and cobblestone made it feel even more rustic and deeply historical. It reminded me... More

As cemeteries go, this is in of the top tier. Overlooking the James (?) River and holding the bodies of many famous folks, including presidents, everyone takes a picture of the dog.

Hollywood Cemetery is a peaceful and expansive cemetery with many prominent people. The cemetery opened in the 1800's and features beautiful statuary, monuments, and landscaping. This morning we arrived at 8:00. The gate was already open and the sun was shining. The air was still relatively cool and a nice breeze was blowing up from the James River. At one... More

This is one of the neatest cemeteries I have ever been to. It looks like it's really old. It has lots of spires and angels for grave stones. There are confederate graves there, two presidents are buried there and there are also mosoleums. a great place to visit. You won't be disappointed.

A friend and I took one of the docent lead tours a few weeks ago. The docent was incredibly knowledgeable and took us through the entire cemetery to be sure that we saw all the highlights. I highly recommend taking a lead tour so that you don't miss the gems.

The final resting place of 2 Presidents, 3 depending upon how you look at it. Historically significant. The graves are beautifully carved, stunning grave markers. The map is helpful as are the staff. There is a restroom at the offices. It is a lot of up and down hills but you can drive throughout. Everyone we met there was friendly... More

You can drive right into the cemetery, but stop at the gatehouse to buy a map for $. Many confederate troops' graves to see and also a large memorial to confederate soldiers. See presidents' graves and many beautiful statues and gravestones .
