    Awesome place to walk around and look at the beautiful architecture

    This sprawling, lush, hilly cemetery was established back in the 1830s just as Americans were taking a more romantic, thoughtful approach to death and honoring their departed loved ones. It really reads more like a gorgeous public park, that happens to be packed with headstones and memorials, than a traditional cemetery. Be sure and visit the reception chapel and pick up a map, then make your way down Fountain Ave to Magnolia, then to Mountain, all the way up to the high granite tower overlooking the entire city.

    One of the most beautiful spaces in Cambridge. Come here to reflect, appreciate the birds, or gawk at famous dead people.

    Very nice park. Be aware there are only two ways in and out: no exit of the south side.

    There is nothing quite like this cemetery in the world. A spectacle of monuments and scenic spots like no other. Exceptionally well maintained and beautifully presented plots and crypts that seem to go on forever. It is well worth the visit. It is completely free, and one is allowed to drive through - not bicycle (oddly because bicycles are quieter and safer than cars) and enjoy, but please get out of the car and walk around. It is definitely worth the visit, especially if you are from out of town. There is a free lookout tower on the hilltop with just under a 100 step climb. (About 3-4 floors).
