    I was there to Get, but this place is worth a visit. Big trees, views of the city. And it's very easy to access by bus!

    I never thought that I would be reviewing a cemetery but this place really is beautiful! Elegantly landscaped and very serene. Many of the 'names' of Houston have been laid to rest here over the years...  more »

    The mgr and Secretary were very helpful. Its free just to walk around and soak up the history. The beautiful location, flowers, old trees, delightful animals, make for a very momentous day. Take a walk on the wild side.

    Lots of history. Many historical people buried here. Ancient oak trees that you won't find many places anymore. Lots of interesting tomb stones and so peaceful to be so close to Houston. It is worth your time. If you like history, nature, and architecture you won't be disappointed. Wear walking shoes and don't be in a hurry. Enjoy.

Where to stay in Houston

If you come to Houston to splurge while on holiday, book a luxurious room at a downtown hotel. This area is an ideal base for getting to know Houston, offering you a chance to stay within walking distance of one of the country's largest theater districts. Houston bills itself as the "Energy Capital of the World," so it's no surprise that it houses many "green" hotels, their garages designed to cater to electric vehicle owners. For something completely different, enjoy a Texas country experience at a working ranch outside the city limits.
