This cemetery is considered to be one of the first garden cemeteries in the country. You will find numerous amazing monuments and beautiful grave sights as you walk the myriad of trails or drive the roads. At the Washington Tower you will have a great view towards downtown Boston. Bring a camera for this trip.

I enjoyed walking the trail at Mount Auburn Cemetery. The landscape is beautiful, especially in the fall, and there are many different paths to travel and places to see.

Beautiful and quiet. You can easily create your own path and see different parts of the area and make your walk as long or short as you like.

Beautiful place that you can visit multiple times and find new beautiful views each time. The biggest highlight would be the lookout tower and the lakes.

I would say the best time to go is in the fall because of the foliage.

Incredibly beautiful garden cemetery with multiple trail loops. You could spend all day walking here enjoying landscaping, bunnies, birds, sculpture, history. One of my favorite things to do in Boston.
