    We spent about 30-45 minutes driving through the cemetery, and we really enjoyed ourselves. We got out once or twice -- including to see President Millard Fillmore's gravesite. Very well maintained.  more »

    Beautiful, quiet place. Great place to walk, bike, and even drive through (maybe even go on a date! ;). I was a little surprised about that last bit, but I quickly realized how big the cemetary was and almost got lost! Fortunately, someone's marked the road so you can find your way out of the labyrinth!

    One of the prettiest cemeteries in the country, Forest Lawn has an unusually high number of famous "residents". Two of the more well-known sites are Frank Lloyd Wright's Blue Sky Mausoleum and the gravesite of President Millard Fillmore.

    “Eerie, humbling, historic, amazing!” First off, walking around a cemetery isn't for everyone, regardless of how amazing it may be. HOWEVER, if you find the enormous "wealth" in the history of 200+yr old cemeteries and you are in Buffalo, you have to stop by! Most of the founders of Buffalo and the surrounding area's are buried there, not to mention Chiefs from Seneca Nation and a US President! Not knowing much of Buffalo's history prior to my first visit, I learned so much in the 3 hrs that I was there (get a map, the place is HUGE!!).
