There are few places in Chicago as beautiful as Graceland Cemetery, which I realize must sound very strange, since it is after all, a cemetery. The lawns are beautifully manicured, and the graves are well-tended, even if they have been in place for better than a century. Here you can find many prominent Chicagoans at their last rest, including Marshall Field and Oscar Meyer. Be sure to visit the Burnham plot, set aside on a small island of its own. Serene and peaceful, Graceland is both a lovely resting place and an interesting tourist spot.
PROS: Famous graves, beautiful setting
CONS: Tourist attraction!
