I wasn't aware Cemeteries were on Tripadvisor's list of places to visit until it popped up after I reviewed a nearby restaurant. Despite the fact that my wife has family members buried here and whenever we are in Chicago we make it a point to visit, it is without a doubt one of the most beautiful places just to reflect...

Beautiful Cemetary with clean areas and well kept grass. Staff very helpful and answered all my questions. Just wish, they would not take off decorations so soon.

Yes it has graves of Chicago mobsters like Capone, also really interesting was that a large percentage of the headstones had old black and white photos on them.

Its hard to wright a review about a cemetery. I have many relatives and friends buried here or in one of the mausoleum's. This is one of the greatest ever. When I grew up in the area we would sneak in and go fishing in the beautiful lake. This will be my last place.

I have many family members who are buried at this cemetery. I always visit when I am in town visiting family. The cemetery is always nicely kept up and is a classic. I visited in October, and not only do I visit my family members, but I also find it interesting the mobsters that are buried there too. This may... More

The graves here are just beautiful works of art and if you read up on the people interred here from gangsters to cardinals to rumored ghosts, there is a great plethora of history all around you. Definitely worth a visit.

I know this is a little weird rating a cemetery but, if you are visiting the chicagoland area you must stop here. It is loaded with history and lots of famous and infamous people are buried here. The monuments and grave markers are one of a kind. So many of the statues are starting to crumble and fall apart and... More
