Walking in Cincinnati – Spring Grove Cemetery

Welcome to America’s second largest cemetery and arboretum.

This past summer we had a group of four of us who would take various walks through our city of Cincinnati.  My sister had bought a book called Walking Cincinnati a couple of years ago and had been doing some of the walks with another sister.  This summer four of us went on quite a few of the walks.  I am going to post those walks in the coming weeks but this week I decided to start with a walk not in the book.  We are all photobugs and wanted to go to Spring Grove Cemetery to take some pictures.  Unknown to us, the cemetery actually has a number of walking routes.  We decided to take the easy one.  At the office, they have maps that you can pick up so you can identify the various historical monuments you see along the way.

The map lists each stop along the walk and explains the history of the monument.  We had a great time walking through the cemetery and taking pictures.  Below are some of the shots that I took along the way.

If I remember correctly, the day was a bit on the cloudy side, but we still got quite a number of good pictures.  After our walk which took over an hour, we went to lunch at the Littlefield.  The LIttlefield is a quaint restaurant with a bit of an unusual menu, but everything we had was delicious and I would highly recommend giving it a try.  I am celiac and they have a variety of gluten free options that I was able to eat.

Next week join me again as we walk our way through the city of Cincinnati.

  1. You’d probably not consider a cemetery a fun place to walk, but it certainly was. The sculptures, statues, buildings, and mosoleums are such works of art, and I am eager to visit in the spring and snap some of the buds and blooms on camera!
