  • A cemetery with a gift shop? This cemetery has one, most likely because of its historic significance and location. On a nice day, Laurel Hill can offer serenity, beauty and contemplation of those who'...  more »
  • This lovely cemetery is seen from the hiway - in fact - you drive under it! While it is not particularly well marked if you are trying to find something (someone!) specific, it is still a nice ramble....  more »

  • 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.
  • Possibly one of the best cemeteries in the country. Since they're "full" they have figured out how to thrive by engaging with their community with an active web presence, gift shop, and a very busy calendar of stuff to do ranging from concerts to tours to movie nights to car shows.
  • Love this place. Great for a peaceful walk or learning something new on one of their many tours. Lots of history in there.
  • The views, the history, the notables buried there all lead to a wonderful place to visit and even picnic there.
  • Immaculately kept grounds. Perfect for history lovers!

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.
