    I’m not really a fan of cemeteries and I don’t see the big ow of this one, but it is very touristic. You can take guided tours for around $15.

    Just come and get lost. Lots to read and look at. Some great views of downtown too. The guide provided in the gift store is also fun to use. There are several tours year round to check out as well.

    I'm particularly fond of the mausoleums as well as the historic Jewish section and the Confederate soldiers grounds.

    Oakland is the best place to eat lunch. Go to Grant Park Coffee or Ria's and pick up some delicious sandwiches to go and sit in the cemetery for the best lunch date in town!

    Oakland is using a Save America's Treasures grant from the National Park Service to restore several of the mausoleums on the site. Visit and see them at work doing amazing stone restoration.
