An absolutely beautiful cemetery overlooking the James River, and also a great place to take some cool pictures. It's free to go into the cemetery and look around, and you can drive through it. The only downside is that it closes at 6 pm, so...More

History around every corner. Headstones are elaborate. We saw several with dog statues watching over... never saw that before. Nice feeling!

I remember being a grad student and sometimes taking my lunch to Hollywood Cemetary to feel the peace of the place in between hectic classes and life. The breathtaking overlooks of the river, the amazing history, the President's Circle, the Civil War history, and all...More

Make sure you get a guide before touring this cemetery so you don't miss any of the highlights..."the dog," Confederate generals and unknowns, and 2 U.S. Presidents are worth seeing.

We love visiting Hollywood cemetery, & we bring out-of-town visitors there too. They might think at first that it's weird to visit a cemetery, but they always love it! Great gothic tombstones & crypts, many famous burial sites -- including presidents & many associated with...More
