However, I am used to being able to drive through cemeteries and park...this one has limited driving area and parking is on the outside on the streets. The main entrance had a... More

If one loves history and cemeteries this place is a must visit. The history of Austin and much of Texas is here. What a beautiful setting and well-maintained grounds. A great place for a peaceful walk under the trees.

Stunning cemetery on the east side of downtown. It is beautiful, interesting and immaculately maintained. I enjoyed seeing not only historical greats but also more recently lost greats like Chris Kyle, Darryl Royal and James Street's final resting places.

Just off the freeway and next to the baseball stadium downtown. Not particularly morbid to me. Graves are very old. Lots of big names are here. Beautiful place to walk or sit.

We visited the State Cemetery and were very impressed with how beautifully maintained it was. It's a interesting walk, and many famous people in Texas History are buried here, as well as local celebrety. There are nice concrete sidewalks and many large trees to shade you while walking around. Overall, worth a visit if you are interested in Texas History.... More

We initially went to visit Chris Kyle's monument. Once there we walked around for an hour or so and came away thoroughly impressed by the beauty and serenity of the grounds. Lots of historical figures from Texas history have made their final resting place here.

On a US holiday and this was a must stop. Had a good walk around in a very warm day. Gardens in excelent condition and well looked after. Some history here and to see all the names in the old part that shaped the history.
