Cemeteries might not be the destination of choice when on vacation, but Lake View Cemetery is definitely worth a visit, both for the extensive history and the glorious nature. The Wade Memorial Chapel, designed by Louis Tiffany (son of the renowned jeweler), and the James...More

I have always wanted to see where John D. Rockefeller and Elliot Ness were burried. You could easily spend 2 to 3 hours here if you are the curious type.

Take some time and take a tour - there are so many famous people buried in this beautifully landscaped cemetery. The history of the chapel alone is worth the tour price. Go see Tiffany Glass at its best.

We went to Garfields tomg, Rckefellas and Haserot Angel. Rockefellas isnt labelled on the map so we had to ask. Garfields was amazing and glad we went to the Haserot but amazed at the hype. Bring a dime and place on Rockefellas for prosperity.
