Forrest Lawn is a cemetery, where people go to pay their respects to the departed that are buried there. However it is also a tourist attraction in Buffalo. Its peaceful and quiet. Lots of nice carvings on the graves. Worth a visit

One of the neatest 'living' history locations in Buffalo! The tours are wonderful.... architectural, historical, social history...it has it all! Their Holiday play, It was a Wonderful Life, was great.

This is a great place if you want to go for a long walk. But they also make it very easy if you just want to drive around and look at the place too. They provide good maps at the front and it's well marked.
