Have been many times. Tremendous history to see here, and the views of the river are spectacular. Don't miss it.

Graveyard with a stunning view
Oct 2021 • Friends
Beautiful cemetery with a lot of history, among other things two US presidents. Also a gorgeous view of the river. Entrance is free. Lots of folks around just enjoying the area - not just visiting graves.

Amazing cemetery. Would be nice to have maps and better marking to find your way around. So peaceful. Amazing views. Need a full day at least to get through it.

Lovely, Historic Spot with Great View
Sep 2021
A must visit in Richmond. We visited on a beautiful early fall in the late afternoon as the sun was beginning to set. This is a sprawling cemetery with historic significance. There are many benches for quiet contemplation or just to take in the best view of downtown Richmond and the James River that runs through it. It is large and hilly so we drove through making stops along the way.

Its actually very cool!
Sep 2021
It's beautiful, historic and has one of the absolute best river views in the city. We took the RVA TukTuk and it was the ideal way to see the cemetary. For Walkers its a great way to enjoy your walk. Yes enjoy a Cemetary.

Truly amazing
Aug 2021
This is the second most visited cemetery in the country and after we visited, we now know why. Its a tough walk so we suggest you see it by TukTuk. Situated on the hill about the city, looking over the James River location and steeped in history

A walk thru history
Aug 2021 • Couples
You can walk or drive, depending on the weather, through this beautiful, hilly historic cemetery. It is moving to see the graves of so many Confederate soldiers and of presidents and generals. The best part is the view of the James River at the back of the cemetery. There was supposed to be a map at the entrance but we never found it. We did find a map online

James Monroe & John Tyler Graves
Aug 2021
My husband and I have found an interest is visiting the gravesites of famous dead people while on vacation, so I knew I had to come here while visiting Richmond. I'm not really into Civil War history, so I skipped past all the famous Confederate soldiers buried in this cemetery. The only one I didn't skip was Jefferson Davis who is the President of the Confederacy. I also saw the graves of James Monroe and John Tyler who are both former presidents. I followed a map on the cemetery's website and used it to find our way around. It worked well until we found some of the roads were blocked from down trees.
