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

Spring Grove has got to be one of the most beautiful cemeteries you could go to to get some quiet time or to spend the rest of your days there. We have bought our plots there. The staff was very helpful. The old, old monuments are a sight to behold. So much history is found here that you would be... More

I was here several years ago and would visit again in a heartbeat. We had a docent for our tour who was quite informative. The history in this cemetery is huge!!!!!

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...
