When I mentioned a quick side trip to the Cemetery...my comments were met with horror! However, after explaining that it's "OKAY" to enjoy time in the cemetery and it's not considered disrespectful in any way, they were convinced that the sculptured markers and amazing variety of trees to view might be interesting. It was a pleasant drive with no traffic... More

It's worth taking 30 minutes and driving around this 'cemetery' where 250,000+ people have been laid to rest. It is an amazing grounds, great place for stroll, a run, or a family photo... seriously, it has the feel of a botanical garden, not of a cemetery....

Beautiful area for a drive. Not sure why it is rated the #1 thing to do in Cincinnati, but it was a fairly quick stop on our way out of town.

This is one of the best cemeteries in the mainland US. I've toured cemeteries in dozens of cities, and Spring Grove is one of the best there is. You can find so much beauty here. My visit was in the winter, so I can only imagine how lush and vibrant the grounds are in the spring or summer time. There... More

Great place to walk, bike or jog. Laden with historical significance and the arboretum has unbelieveable specimens of various trees. Take the time to smell the roses and tour this great location...

Nice and quiet place with lots of history. Free admission. We did the tour by car but it is a great place for cycling!

Spring Grove has been listed as one of the largest and best cemeteries in the nation.... and for good reason! It has so much history, and the grounds are perfectly peaceful. The lakes, fountains, bridges and paths add to the inviting, park-like setting. It's a great place to walk or drive, with many picturesque sites. A lot of people choose... More

This place is amazing. It is so big so make sure you stop at the front and get a map. There is a ton of history here along with some historical people. Bring your walking shoes

Spring Grove is a beautiful cemetery and Arboretum. It's a nice place to walk or leisurely stroll and look at old headstones. If you want to walk the 5k course I wouldn't recommend using the map on their website. It is very confusing and you can get easily lost in the cemetery! Other than that it is very nice and... More
