A visit to Richmond should not pass without a stop at this shrine to the city it overlooks. Off the beaten path but easy to find, this gem is tucked back in a 19th century working class neighborhood. You could spend hours there but stop at the gatehouse for a map and drive through for some great views if the... More

If you want history and want to see a cemetery with all different types of head stones this is the place. The rich and poor of Virginia are here. From presidents, to soldiers from both sides of the War between the States, and many others that helped form this great country. You need to spend several hours walking this grounds.... More

I've been to Hollywood Cemetery quite a few times. I can never remember exactly where the Black Dog is, or where the graves of the several presidents are. I just 'come upon' them unexpectedly, so it's like it's always new! The view from the top, across the river, is spectacular. It is well-maintained, historic, and peaceful--not spooky. If there is...

I have been there several times and it is extremely beautiful. The grounds are kept up nicely and very easy to drive or walk if you so choose. There is also a lot of history there.

A stop at Hollywood Cemetery is a must for a history buff. My husband could have spent a lot longer wandering through this cemetery if it wasn't such a cold and breezy morning. We navigated to presidents' circle and also took in views of the James River before getting back in the car to warm up.

Cemetery is a HUGE! We drove it and got lost for a decent amount of time but did not mind as it is absolutely beautiful and full of CSA heroes. The pyramid is a sight to see by itself but there are amazing views throughout. Definitely worth a day to explore.

If you enjoy visiting cemeteries, you will probably enjoy this one. It has the large historical monuments, the statues, decorative stones, and mausoleums; one built into the side of a hill. And mentioning hills, the whole cemetery is on rolling hills. I visited in late December, so it was pretty gray but well worth an hour if you have it.

Hollywood is a great historic cemetery that offers the best views of the James River and the city of Richmond. A must see.

I love this place! Fun to look at the tombstones and epitaphs. Beautiful layout, trees, flowers and really cool mosuleums. A lot of history. Great for a walk. Peaceful, great place to read, walk, or just to sit and enjoy a nice day by yourself or with a significant other. In a weird way this place is kind of romantic... More

Took the father-in-law and his wife to the cemetery on Christmas Day to walk around. Wanted to show them John Tyler's tomb but it was being restored off-site. We enjoyed the view of the James River, the Mausoleum and the drive around Davis Circle. Nice place to walk around as the views are good.
