This is a fabulous, enormous cemetery with lots of history. There is a lot of information and a map in the office at the main gate, so you can do a self-guided tour. But don't go there without spending the price of the trolley tour. Our guide, Marge Raymond, was fabulous. She knew the flora, fauna and history of the whole place. The only people on the tour on this cold, blustery February afternoon were my husband, our adult daughter and I, and it was like the entire experience was tailored just for us. Marge sang "Somewhere" at Leonard Bernstein's gravesite, and then our daughter joined her in a rendition of the "Jet Song." We had a great time and would recommend this to everyone.
We were driven around in a large van, which was very comfortable in that weather. We also got out and walked around at many of the stops. We'd like to go back again in the spring when the blossoms are open and the weather a bit more comfortable.
