When the weather is nice and you want to be outside you have to stop by Spring Grove. We happened to be there on a day when they were giving tours and it was amazing. We stayed 3 hours but I could've been there longer. Take a book and read, sit by the lakes, pack a lunch, walk, or bike... More

This cemetery reminded us of Lake View Cemetery up in Cleveland, where we live. The monuments are beautiful here and you actually feel like you are in a park.

We had come to Cincinnati to see the tulips in bloom at the Cincinnati zoo, but because of Trip Advisor, Sugar Grove Cemetary came up as a must see. Springtime with all of the trees in bloom,, with 700 acres of serenity, winding roads ponds and marble benches to sit and wonder about life and history. The monuments were exceptional... More

What a beautiful area. The trees, shrubs and wildflowers were in bloom and present a lovely location to just take a walk or snap some pictures or just take in the sights of beautiful monuments. The swan on one of the ponds seemed to be performing for the children. Saw lots of people taking senior pictures. Great location for that,... More

Starting in April you will see a spectacular bloom of trees, shrubs, and flowers. This may be a cemetery, but it is a park like setting and very lovely to just walk around on a warm Spring day. Handicapped can enjoy a slow drive through the area as well as those who prefer to walk the paths.

Absolutely beautiful in the spring! One forgets they are in a final resting place full of history.. The blooms, architecture, and interesting monuments are well worth a visit. You can stay in your car and enjoy a driving tour or park and take a leisurely stroll. Get info at the front gate, on Spring Grove Ave. Plan you visit in... More

This is a must for if you go to Cincinnati. The monuments are not what one would associate with a cemetery. Large variety of very old monuments many with sculptures. While we were there Canadian geese were walking around everywhere. One could spend all day reading headstones but a drive through tour is easy and can be done from a... More

My wife, daughter, and myself enjoy visiting cemeteries in various cities. This cemetery is huge and well kept. We were in awed to see beautiful funerary sculptures and mausoleums. The 19th century Gothic entrance buildings was impressive. The ponds and waterfalls had to the a serene landscape.

Love cemeteries? Love tombstones? You ain't seen nothin' 'til you've visited Spring Grove Cemetery in Cinci. The impressive entrance buildings -- 19th century gothic -- only hint at the marvels you'll see. This huge site was designed during the heyday of garden cemeteries, when places of the dead were used for picnicking and other social gatherings. (Okay, a nod to... More
