“Tranquil beauty”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2012

I have never considered visiting a cemetery other than paying homage to a loved one so I was a little apprehensive. But Cedar Hill encourages visitors. They provide a map of famous people's graves as well as a map of the many type of trees that grow on their grounds. It was very tranquil and quiet. A great place to reflect and admire the beautiful artistry of the headstones.

This is a beautifully landscaped cemetery and a great place to go for a nice walk. . There are occasionally staff led walks here which are very interesting.

“Magnificent, beautiful, peaceful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 28, 2012

This is one of the most beautiful, magnificent cemeteries I've seen. There are many notable industrial tycoons and stars buried here, including Katharine Hepburn. The cemetery's foundation has incredible events throughout the year (including a nighttime haunted lantern tour at Halloween-time). It's a great place to walk or take a bike ride or simply enjoy the graves. There are ethnic sections in the cemetery which are interesting to see... graves in Chinese language, for example.
