Lake View is always in mint condition. Unfortunately the McKinley Memorial is under construction so access is limited but still worth going.

Best cemetery ever seen in beautiful setting. Craftsmanship of stonemasons originally from Italy makes it memorable.

The Wade chapel and Garfield's monument are beautiful. In the summer look for Lolly trolley tours and free music. Great place for walking.

One of Cleveland's gems. It's so much more than just a cemetery as it is the site of Garfield's Monument and the Wade Chapel. Also spectacular landscaping, lakes. Some of my family is buried here, so I've been often. Just beautiful.

An unusual destination to be sure but well worth it. Garfield has a giant tomb here and Wade has Tiffany glass. Beautiful grounds too and tours.

This is one of Cleveland's finest hidden gems. The statuary and monuments are beautiful, you can feel the love, admiration and grief that triggered these wonderful memorials. Wade chapel is outstanding. I could sit there for hours. A place of everlasting peace.
