I know it sounds weird, but if you like history this is the place to go. You will see the graves of popular well known people from the Pittsburgh area. You can walk around for hours and never stop being amazed.

This Cemetary, and the Homewood Cemetary have the most famous Pittsburger's buried there, along with some well known historical figures---they give guided tours for free. By the way--it is said that both are haunted.

A very beautiful cemetery and a great place for a walk if you are in a meditative mood. Many prominent Pittsburghers are laid to rest here. It reflects the very varied ethnic groups that came to Pittsburgh at different times.
