Went to see where Steven King filmed part of Pet Semetary, walked amongst some very old headstones. Could have spent the day there.

We toured Mount Hope Garden Cemetery as part of another tour. The cemetery is beautiful and full of interesting history. I don't know if the cemetery itself gives tours but, if they do, I'm sure it would be a very interesting one!

Even the drizzle of rain didn't stop us from checking out this cemetery where scenes were filmed for "Pet Cemetery".
