Once upon a time, this cemetery must have been in the middle of deep countryside. Today it is surrounded by light industry and degraded housing, but definitely drive out on a beautiful day. You can drive around the cemetery or take one of a number of well-marked walks. (Stop at the main building and get a map). There are quite... More

When our son said that we were going to visit a cemetery, we thought that it was strange. Six of us went including 2 teenagers and we all enjoyed it, though it may have been a bit too near nature for the youngest - there were a lot of spiders! We only managed to see a small part at the... More

You would not think a cemetery would be that interesting. Spring Grove is off the charts in fascinating. The Headstones, the history, the flowers, trees. Literally everything about this place is incredibly well done. I have gone 3 times and each time I was there over 6 hours. Took over 500 photos of just fascinating things. My absolute favorite place... More

Me and the wife sometimes walk here. It is a calming place with plenty of walk ways. We go on the weekends cause they have different size walk ways. 1,2,&3 miles. Plus it is very interesting to read some of the head stones.

Even though it is in downtown Cincinnati, it is so peaceful and beautiful. The grounds are so well maintain and the history of the Cemetery is quite interesting.

We asked around town, no one could believe that trip advisor calls this site number one. If you are interested in an old cemetery, these grounds are beautiful. There are unique markers. If you have some time to spare, have at it, if not go to the zoo, that should be rated number one!

If you are a life long citizen of Cincinnati or just passing through the city you must make time to visit Spring Grove Cemetery. This place is absolutely gorgeous all around, the landscaped grounds are eye catching and beautiful but that is just scratching the surface of what resides inside the ancient walls of the cemetery. There are countless Gothic... More

Thanks to amazing architecture and a beautiful setting, the Spring Grove Cemetery and Arboretum is a lovely place to visit. My favorite time is in the spring, thanks to thousands of blooming trees and large plantings of daffodils and tulips interspersed around lakes and quaint mausoleums. Go see it while you can still walk out on two feet!

Went there as it was rated No 1 in TA attraction. Huge plots with the largest memorials and monuments.. If you want to drive, grab a coffee to go somewhere and take a very slow ride or if more energetic it would be a great walk. Could probably go for miles, beautiful ponds and bushes and flora.
