Who would think of a historic cemetery as a tourist attraction or a place to exercise but Forest Lawn is an incredible place for this and other activities. The cemetery's miles of protected roads with hills and valleys and incredible views or trees, lakes and a winding creek is one of the best spots in Buffalo for walking, jogging or bike riding and it's a good workout with the hills. The cemetery is also a fascinating place to visit the memorials of hundreds of people who shaped the lives of the nation, including President Millard Fillmore, Larry Bell who invented the helicopter and built the X-1 aircraft, Willis Carrier who invented air conditioning, the Fakir of Ava who was the first truly modern magician with a huge traveling shoe and who trained the great Harry Keller along with Thurston and others, William Fargo who founded Wells Fargo and company..... The list goes on and on and on. And the memorials are incredible works of art. A visit to Forest Lawn is a must-do both for locals and for visitors to the area.
