Scenic City of the DeadSprawled on a bluff above the James River, Hollywood is one of the country’s most historic cemeteries. Victorian-era mausoleums and monuments include the tombs of Presidents James Monroe and John Tyler (and a host of notable Richmonders) along with a cast-iron Newfoundland dog and a 30-meter stone pyramid honoring the 18,000 Confederate soldiers buried here.

Spooky! Hollywood Cemetery is a haunted adventure worth seeing. The grounds are enormous, and at the end overlook the James River. Jefferson Davis, two U.S. Presidents, many Confederate generals are buried here. Although there are many legends about spirits haunting the grounds, including that of the Richmond Vampire, the park-like atmosphere makes Hollywood worth a stroll.
