The Ketchum Cemetery is right outside of town and is very easy to find. There is lots of parking. Hemingway's grave is easy to find located among some trees. All around a very nice, very well-kept cemetery.

Starting in my very youth I read all the stuff from this famous author. Reverently standing in front of his grave. Peaceful, well fostered location. To pause for a moment in this vibrant world.
