All reviews wade chapel garfield memorial buried here eliot ness tiffany glass garfield's tomb final resting place daffodil hill president james rockefeller family louis comfort tiffany peaceful place alan freed cleveland history lots of history great history beautiful park
Sounds crazy to spend an afternoon in a cemetery, but it feels more like a park with a lot of history. Garfield's monument is the obvious stand-out here, but it is like a trip through Cleveland's storied history with all of the rich and powerful...More
As crazy as it sounds, a visit to the Lakeview Cemetary is actually quite cool and historic. Cleveland has a rich history of dignitaries and famous, wealthy individuals. The grounds are immaculately kept & it’s truly worth a tour to see the history & glamour...More
It's weird to review a cemetery, but it really is an interesting place.
I have attend funerals here too. But even just taking a drive thru you can appreciate the cemetery. History buffs would definitely appreciate a visit.
This place is AWESOME. Soooo much history here. First off, President Garfields tomb is a must. Parts of his oval office are enshrined on the walls, and the architecture is fabulous. The chapel has a giant window made by Tiffany himself. You wouldn't know, but...More
I had always heard that Lakeview Cemetary was a must-visit place to see. Both because of the historical giants buried there, and the sheer beauty of the grounds. We spent an entire day there a week ago and it did not disappoint. From the amazing...More
I have both walked and driven in this large cemetery and I recommend driving because you can't possibly walk all of it and see everything. Final resting place for Elliot Ness, Alan Freed, John Rockefeller and, of course, President Garfield. We were not able to...More

No fees involved. You drive around and stop where you want. There is a very knowledgeable historian at the Garfield memorial and a wonderful docent at the Wade Chapel. They both have maps available and can point out monuments of interest. Also Wikipedia and the cemetary website are very informative.
I've been watching and reading the forums regarding the West Side Market, going there on Saturday, and suggestions for places to stay to get there easily. Please tell me it this is a decent place to stay and then to get to the West Side Market early on a Saturday morning, late April? Days Inn, 12019 Lake Ave., Lakewood, OH. It appears to be about 4 1/2 miles away. If we got there 7:30 to 8am would we beat some of the conjestion? The plan is to leave there, head to Lolly the Trolley for...More

Saturday morning is the busiest time for the West Side Market, so getting there early is a must - did you check out the hotel reviews for the Day's Inn in Lakewood??? I am not familiar with it. There is also a very nice Hilton Garden Inn on Carnegie in downtown that is about 5 minutes away from the the West Site Market. A drive through Lake View Cemetery is nice - many famous people buried there.

Hi, everyone. Our party of two adults will be traveling in early August and I'd appreciate any help in putting things in a logical order for a portion of our trip. We will be driving to Cleveland from Niagara Falls, Ontario and, after our stay in Cleveland, moving on toward Milan, Fremont, and Cincinnati. As we drive toward Cleveland, we will be visiting the James Garfield NHS in Mentor after an early start from Niagara Falls. The things we'd like to do in the Cleveland area include...More
