Located in the rolling hills overlooking the James River, Hollywood Cemetery is just a great place to stroll and relax! Two US presidents are buried in the cemetery as well as many Civil War soldiers and notable folks from Virginia.

I'm no cemetery aficionado but this place is pretty neat. James Monroe, John Tyler and Jefferson Davis are buried here and the place is absolutely enormous.

This is a one of a kind Cemetery. Not flat and treeless. It is beautiful here and walking here is peaceful and relaxing.

When people from out of town visit, I always take them to Hollywood. And I usually make them walk and not drive around the cemetery. The best view of the James River is atop the hill by the railroad. Excellent for photographers and those interested in history. Beautiful and peaceful.

Very nice grounds. Powerful to visit area of Confederate war dead with large monument. Nice views at places overlooking the James. Presidential circle were two presidents are buried is nice though not the easiest to find.

I traveled through here on a whim and drove through. It was a lot bigger then I thought. Grounds were well kept. I did not do a tour, but I highly recommend it; you miss a lot just driving through and there is a lot of history there.

I am not much of a history buff but my husband is - we decided to kill some time between volleyball games and walked around the cemetery (do park your car and walk), not only is the cemetery scenic overlooking the river it is full of rich history. Reading the markers and stepping back in time is a good way... More

An excellent find. The final resting places of presidents and Confederate soldiers. Unique tombstones, etc. Excellent views of Richmond.

It sounds crazy to say that a cemetery is beautiful and historic (unless you are in New Orleans or the like) but this is an amazing place - the topography, the history, the views. Don't miss it.

Did a tour of Hollywood Cemetery with a group from my retirement home. Mr E L Butterworth rode on our bus and gave a delightful tour. He is very knowledgeable about the cemetery and people buried there. You can either do a tour with personnel from the cemetery, drive yourself or walk. Two things to be aware of is that... More
