Destination of the Week: Chicago-Far North Side Lakefront Communities, IL-Graceland Cemetery in Uptown

Destination of the Week: Chicago-Far North Side Lakefront Communities, IL-Graceland Cemetery in Uptown

Expect some strange looks if you ever mention you are visiting a cemetery on holiday.  With maybe the exception of Arlington National Cemetery, few would even consider a visit, let along a few hours, to any cemetery.  Graceland though is an exception.  The final resting spot for a many important Chicagoans, the main office welcomes well-behaved visitors with open arms.  At the main office be sure to pick up a free map and the books that are for sale.  For those wanting a tour guide, the Chicago Architecture Foundation occasionally offers tours.

From downtown, take the CTA El’s Red Line to Sheridan Station.  The site is located about 0.5 miles away.
