Old North Cemetery

Throwing it back to August’s New England road trip again today! As I mentioned in previous posts from this trip*, we had no real destinations or purpose. Jeff wanted to eat lobster roll and I was interested in the many, many old cemeteries that cover the area. Even with those things in mind, we were

three favorite Cleveland cemeteries

I really love Cleveland. I think we’re a totally underrated city, and I want to do my best to help spread the word that this should be a place you visit at least once. Last month I shared some of my favorite spots in Cleveland, and before that, I spilled the beans on my favorite

Old Burial Hill Cemetery

Old Burial Hill Cemetery in Marblehead, Massachusetts came highly recommended by many folks whose travel suggestions I hold in high regard. Not that that matters because after visiting Salem I had completely forgotten about those recommendations. Luckily, as we were leaving the area, I thought to look at the FindAGrave app. I spotted the name

The Burying Point

In the past few years, I’ve crossed off more than a few bucket list travel spots. Two bigs ones being Roswell and most recently, Salem.

Thurber Cemetery

It’s hard to say something is your favorite when you literally just got married a few days earlier and spent a whole bunch of time with the people most important to you. So, let’s call this

Steins Cemetery

The FindAGrave app isn’t perfect but it did lead me here and that definitely counts for something! Normally the drive back from anywhere feels so much shorter because you have whatever you did to occupy your mind. This definitely should have been the case, since Jeff and I had just gotten married a few short

Boothill Graveyard

Boothill Graveyard in Tombstone, Arizona is easily the most tourist filled cemetery I have been to. Even more so than Granary Burying Ground! It also marks the first cemetery I have ever paid admission to check out. $3 gets you entry, a pamphlet detailing all of the known burials, and a short speech about the

Tinker’s Creek Cemetery

One of my favorite fall traditions is visiting cemeteries. Obviously, if you’ve been following The Dainty Squid for any amount of time you’d know it’s not just a fall thing for me. Buuuut there is something super special about them when the weather starts to get a chill and the leaves litter the ground. Honestly
