Lakeview Cemetery is probably the most spectacular graveyard in the city. There aren't too many trees to obstruct the view, just a few to shelter mourners. Many of Seattle's pioneers are buried here, including Princess Angeline, Dexter Horton, Doc Maynard and his wife, Catherine. Kung fu fans also flock to the graves of movie hero Bruce Lee and his son, actor Brandon Lee. Even if the dead do not intrigue you, this is to explore and pay your respects to the heroes who have gone on.

  I visited the cemetery yesterday (cool, sunny and breezy). It was stunning with its vistas of the Cascades, Bellevue and even a portion of the Sound. It was quiet (as it should be), with people slowly walking or sitting in the sun. I wish I'd had the map, available at the office across from the entry, hidden in a rain-proof box, before I started my tour, as I could have located more of the pioneers of Seattle. Get a map & go, but make sure it's not raining if you're afraid you'll's a big place!...   Read More
