While come cemeteries are creepy and forbidding, this one is truly tranquil and inviting. It's an arboretum as well, so the flowering trees are amazing in the spring as well as beautiful in the fall. Maps and marked roadways prevent your getting lost on a walk, as it's quite large, and the two central ponds with ducks, geese, and fountains also help you keep your bearings. As I say, it's a great place to get in some exercise, but it's hard to stay away from the very interesting markers and inscriptions! Only a mile or so from the historic downtown district and the Mary Todd Lincoln house, I would definitely recommend visitors including this as part of their "walk" through history in Lexington, KY.
