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

We were amazed at all of the artistic family plot markers, many mausoleums with stained glass, and miles of unique headstones.

Lake View Cemetery is a must visit for photographers, history buffs & anyone who enjoys the beauty of the outdoors and/or cemeteries. Lake View is a very park-like setting where one could literally get lost for hours walking. There are ponds, a dam, trails and...More

I'm so glad I decided to visit Lake View Cemetery while visiting Cleveland. it was so interesting to visit President Garfield's gravesite and to see the beautiful Tiffany glass inside of the Wade Chapel. Also seen Rockefeller's monument.

West Side Market (2 Replies)
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
