  • One of my favorite places in Sacramento! I discovered this cemetery years ago, when I took my overly rambunctious nephew here on free museum day, not realizing that the cemetery is always free. He loved it and could explore without knocking things over. Usually pretty empty, this cemetery is full of beautiful monuments to people who've been dead long enough that you don't have to worry about disturbing grieving relatives. It is full of hills and well tended plants and a few cats. Great for a talk with a friend, or for thinking about life, or for taking your children for a walk!
  • Most beautiful cemetery I’ve ever been to and I have travelled to many countries. The flowers are amazing!
