It's like being in a morbid fantasy land.

Never thought that I'd say a cemetery is one of my favorite relaxation spots, but I love curling up on the steps of a mortuary or under a shade tree by the lake with a good book.

My kids thought it would be odd to drive through a Cemetery, but it was a very beautiful place and I recommend going if you are into looking at elaborate tombstones. Very large place too...

It's certainly not the first or tenth place that comes to mind as an attraction. When I looked up things to see in Cincinnati I figured it had to be pretty special to be rated so high. We were not disappointed. With out question the most impressive cemetery I have ever seen. If you have the time drive through, the... More

Whether geocaching, Pokemon Go or just a lesson in history .... Beautifully maintained with tour option (graves dating back to Cincinnati's origination). When the weather is gorgeous, plan on spending @ least an hour to just walk & enjoy this park setting, sculptures & monuments. There are special events, so check their website.

Spring Grove Cemetery is way more than just a cemetery. It is a historical cemetery, but it is also a beautiful place to drive through. There are beautiful plants, lakes, fountains, and wonderful gravestones to look at. There are also very old buildings to look at, and some that you can go into, such as chapels. People go there for... More

For people who enjoy wandering around in cemeteries, Spring Grove is one of, if not THE best in the country. As the name states, this cemetery is also an arboretum, and the landscape is spectacular, particularly in the spring and fall. On the gravestones and tombs, Cincinnati residents will recognize many locally famous names.

A person we met at a restaurant on the way to Cincinnati said we had to see the Spring Grove Cemetery. It was all she said it was. We decided to check it out because we had some time to kill and it in the area. It also was listed on Trip Advisor as a top thing to see. It... More

One of the largest cemeteries in the world, Spring Grove has interesting grave sites as well as a wonderful arboretum (even if you don't know a lot about trees, you'll enjoy it). It's a peaceful place to walk, run, or ride a bike.

Went to a Civil War Era story telling event, very hot outside but the grounds were well kept. The characters did a nice job of story telling about their Civil War character. After the event was over I drove around the grounds and saw lots of pretty colorful displays. I even rode the tram around to and from each character... More
