“Moving”
Reviewed February 26, 2013

You look upon the graves of men that fought for us and it's moving, I cried. I don't see how anyone could go there and it not move you to see so many deaths that fought for you to be free.

Yes it's a cemetary but quite amazing that it's the final resting place for so many famous Texans and more.

“Great for a history buff like me!”
Reviewed November 12, 2012

This is a cemetery of course, so not exactly exciting. But it has more "important" Texans than any other single place I know of. We spent almost 2 hours walking and enjoying on a cool spring morninng.
