When the Laurel Hill Cemetery fell into disrepair in the late nineteenth century, a new resting place had to be found for the roughly 35,000 people buried there. A new, larger, cemetery was constructed in what is today Colma (the city whose motto is "it's good to be alive in Colma," due to the disproportionate number of dead to living). Today, the only cemeteries left in San Francisco are the pet cemetery and the military cemetery in the Presidio. With the tremendous number of notable deceased at Cypress Lawn, and the fantastically well-manicured gardens, a tour might be something to learn some surprising facts from. Or, just to have a nice scenic walk.
