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.

My favorite place to walk. Plants gorgeous. Peaceful and quiet. Deer often sighted. If unfamiliar get a map at visitor center in front.

We picked a nice cool day to check out where we're going to be planted someday and it is really lovely. Even if you don't have a plot or going to see someone else's it is nice to drive or walk around. They keep the grounds very nice.

Spring Grove is a beautiful place to visit. The architecture and headstones are lovely. Many famous people rest there. Flowers & trees are gorgeous. Very well worth an afternoon visit!

Historic Spring Grove Cemetery was established almost two decades before the Civil War, but is a place not only for loved ones, but also the living. The immaculate grounds are visited daily by those walking, jogging, or partaking in one of the many events that are held there. History buffs can find veterans of all wars since the Revolutionary War,... More

I took a Cincinnati Summer Horticulture class years ago in which we met at the cemetery a few times. Not only is it good for this, but great for walking, running, meditating, exploring...

This cemetery is absolutely beautiful and immense, we got a bit lost wandering around. There is so much to see, one visit doesn't do it justice, and I'd definitely like to go back!

While most people might not immediately think of a cemetery as a place to visit, this one stands out. The entire cemetery is in immaculate condition. The place is huge, so we prefer to just meander through and take in the serenity. In addition to the impressive mausoleums and grand markers, there is the chapel near the entrance that is... More
