If you like cemetaries, this one is beautiful. Both my parents are buried here, as well as some notable Minnesota public figures

It may seem a little morbid to some, but i love visiting cemetery's. And this one blew me away. It is huge, and filled with beautiful head stones which to be honest are like little pieces of art. It's well maintained and looked after, and if you're like me and like visiting cemetery's, then please go and visit this one!

My husband and I attended their annual Memorial Day festivities this year. The service was well planned, and included tributes to Abraham Lincoln, veterans and those who gave their lives in service to our country. It was patriotic, but not over the top. The musical selections were well chosen, and were performed by the MPD Police Band and a local gospel quartet.

In the past, I have been on a guided walking tour of Lakewood--focusing on the history of Minneapolis and highlighting famous founders who are buried there. It is peaceful and beautifully landscaped.

This cemetery is located by some of Minneapolis' favorite walking lakes. It is large with lots of old gravestones to look at. There is a nice road to drive on or park and walk along in the serene atmosphere. There are also ponds which is always a plus.

If you like walking through cemetaries and seeing the history this is a great one to do it at. Along with a lot of Minneapolis history there is also the beautiful view and landscaping that makes it enjoyable. Looking up some of the cemetary's history also makes it even more interesting. Be a little careful, the grounds are so big that it is possible to get lost in here, which I did.
