As an Asian, never been in a cemetery before. Not to mention to take a couple hours trip in a cemetery! My friend took me here to see something different from Asia. That's really different for sure!

The Hollywood Cemetery in Richmond is a beautiful old cemetery filled with history. It's well worth the stop. Overlooking the James River and rolling hills, it's a beautiful walk. Some of the grave sites you'll see are: General George Pickett, Jefferson Davis, John Tyler, James Monroe. One of the favorite grave sites belongs to a little girl who has a statue of a large iron black dog guarding her grave.

If you like visiting historic cemeteries, you should visit this one. The setting is great--on slopes overlooking the James River--and the landscaping is serenely beautiful. There are a number of historic celebrities buried here, including three Presidents and many prominent historic figures of the Confederacy.

In addition to being the final resting place for many Virginians, it is also a scenic and historic spot, being the burial place of many famous Virginians.

Lots of famous people are buried here, and it has great views of the James River. A great place to run, walk, or bring a dog.
