  • This cemetery is amazing. The grounds are wonderful to walk about. The cemetery has plenty of history, a nice overlook and the organization always has events scheduled for the community. I have plenty of photos of this place and it is a favorite location to visit when I come to Philly to visit.
  • Took the tour of both East and West several years ago. Absolutely fascinating. The history, the characters, the stories, the art and architecture was wonderful. Well worth the time.
  • It such a beautiful place to visit. I you enjoy history and the art of the memorials and peaceful environment it a must go place.
  • Gourgeous, historic and on a hillside overlooking the Schuylkill River. Worth a walk around. Or go for one of the events that happens there. We biked out from Center City for a macabre craft fair, had a lovely afternoon and found some cool gifts.
  • Kind of amazing. Walked through, saw lots of probable Civil War casualties (young men did not do so well in the mid 1860's, it would seem). General Meade and a naval hero from 1812 (Commodore Isaac... Hull, maybe?) and thousands of graves with monuments, obelisks, statues, mausoleums... I try not to walk on the graves though some people ( looking at all the dog walkers) don't exactly treat it with the due respect. Watch out for woodchuck holes, no idea where you're *supposed* to park (I ended up somewhere kinda sketchy), but other than that it's a guaranteed blast.

Where to stay in Philadelphia

Most of Philadelphia's hotels cluster around the compact city center, ensuring quick and easy access to major tourist sights and activities. The only drawback to staying in this area is the lack of free parking, so if you're exploring by car, considering booking into a bed and breakfast in one of the city's residential blocks. Visitors planning on longer stays can also consider several apartment hotels, offering spacious furnished units with complimentary Wi-Fi, free bike rentals, and access to rooftop terraces.
