Very nice historic Cemetery. Very large and spread out. We did locate Col Sanders and Ali's resting places. Roads are well laid out with turnouts. Worth a visit.

The age and scope of this gorgeous cemetery are mind blowing. A number of tours, historical, celebrity, etc, are offered, including a hay ride. Can't wait to go back in the spring and explore more thoroughly.

3833.9 miles from the canal to the cemetery. You can easily walk it if you have enough time.
How many people are on the tour? What type of transportation? Cost?
