    This is a weirdly pretty cemetery. Reminds me of Parisian cemeteries in that you can just wander around and appreciate how pretty it is. (If you can get past the whole dead people thing, obviously.)

    When a friend of mine first proposed that we visit the Mt. Auburn cemetery, I wasn't really sure what to think. I'd heard of the Granary Burial Ground, with Sam Adams and Paul Revere, but not Mt. Auburn. And wouldn't a cemetery be depressing? Not so! The Mt. Auburn cemetery feels more like a park or garden, and I was amazed to discover how peaceful and relaxing it was. You could easily spend hours wandering through the various grave sites and marveling at the magnitude of some of the monuments.

    Founded in 1831 as America's first garden cemetery, in my mind, it more than lives up to it. This cemetery was absolutely beautiful. It reminded me more of the cemeteries one sees in Europe than most of the cemeteries you find in the states. It's wonderful to walk through the the Washington Tower in the middle of the cemetery gives you a great view of Boston and the surrounding area.

    Mt Auburn is a pretty cemetery in Cambridge, one of the first in the US (apparently) to be built on the park model. There are lots of trees, flower beds and a really cool tower building that gives you panoramic views of the city. Taking a walk in a cemetery might seem a little strange, but Mt Auburn really makes it a lovely experience.
