  • Very beautiful Cemetery! Landscaping is immaculate and reading about some of these old Graves and looking them up online to see who they where is pretty fun way to pass some time during the Heat
  • Gorgeous grounds and amazing history here. Resting places of respect for many of those who have been the makers of Texas' history.
  • if you visit it, please, don't talk so loudl, show some respect. The place is in a way very very interesting, I learned many things about Texas's history and this country too! I was just a bit bothered by some unrespectful people talking at a high volume, I am not used to this..
  • Very pretty cemetery, well kept grounds and nice to walk through
  • Worth a walk. Very interesting

Where to stay in Austin

Austin bills itself as the "Live Music Capital of the World," so it shouldn't come as a surprise that many of its hotels sell out long before the city's popular festivals. If you wish to stay near downtown's live music scene, look for package deals and book your accommodations well in advance. If downtown clubs and bars aren't your priority, consider hotels located just outside the central part of town, in comfortable areas where you won't need a car to get to most of the city's major cultural sites.
