Don't let the word cemetery scare you away from this beautiful area just outside of Cincinnati. Spring Grove Cemetery and Arboretum has many beautiful ponds, trees, and structures to explore.

There is a walking tour of the cemetery that you can follow that will bring you by champion trees (the largest tree of that species in the state of Ohio), around 15 scenic lakes, as well as across some bridges.  The unique mausoleums and obelisks are a sight in their own and will surround you on your walk.

A map of the points of interest within the cemetery can be found here: http://www.springgrove.org/upl...

Spring Grove is open every day, but hours vary throughout the seasons, so be sure to check the hours the gates will be open before you head out.
