  • Beautiful! Nice place to walk around. Even if you aren't a fan of cemeteries I would still recommend this because it is so beautiful.
  • A simple joy for me in travels is to take some quiet time to explore a cities past through their cemeteries. This is a beautiful spot and at special places on the grounds you also get an awesome view of the downtown skyline. Take your time, this is a good sized plot right next to all the other more energetic things this city has to offer.
  • Oakland Cemetery is a gem. Great for a long walk amongst history! They take great care of the place. Beat spot to bring visitors from out of town.
  • Oakland Cemetery is full of history, Victorian symbolism, and beautiful gardens. They offer a general overview tour about the cemetery and some of the people buried there, and they offer special topic tours as well.
  • A place for the youth to take selfies, or a plce to stroll through on a cool Autumn day.
