The area
Address
Neighbourhood: Lakeview
Lakeview extends inland from the shores of Lake Pontchartrain with much of the area reserved for family-friendly City Park. Home to the New Orleans Museum of Art, the Besthoff Sculpture Garden, Carousel Gardens Amusement Park, and the city’s own lush Botanical Gardens, City Park is a New Orleans gem and the perfect spot for outdoor fun with as much of a mix of culture and/or amusement as you would like. Beyond City Park more great excuses to stay outside beckon, whether on land or by boat. Developed a good deal later than most other New Orleans neighborhoods, Lakeview has a distinctively different look and feel compared to other parts of the city. Fans of mid century modern design and contemporary architecture particularly enjoy leisurely drives around the residential streets of Lake Vista, Park Island and along Lakeshore Drive.

I'm a big fan of Anne Rice so I wanted to visit her grave while in town. The cemetery is surprisingly close to the French Quarter. It was just a 10 min ride by Uber. We found out later that you could also take the Canal St. cable car. You pass the cemetery on the way from the airport on your right. It's full of old oak trees and mausoleums, some very decorated with statues and angels. Anne is right by the canal straight up the path from the entrance at Avenue Bell and O. I give it a 4 as it's not a very restful place since I-10 runs right along side and it is very noisy. But it's a very nice afternoon to wander among the dead.

Not only is Lake Lawn a beautiful, serene, and beautifully maintained funeral home and cemetery, but the staff are top notch on every level. When my father recently passed away, his services were provided by Lake Lawn, and our family could not have been happier with the service, personal assistance, kindness, compassion, and assistance given to us during this very difficult time. I have nothing but heart-felt thanks to the entire staff. - The Charles Barbier Family

We went with a tour guide and had a wonderful experience learning about the history and the various types of resting places. I would not go on my own simply because I did not know who/where well known people were resting. Be mindful to stay hydrated and prepared for the sun. The history of this cemetary and the beauty was incredible.

This is where the very rich are laid to rest and it shows. The grounds are very beautiful, even in November was still able to spot a few squirrels. I went there to pay my respects to Anne Rice, and after a few wrong turns I was able to do so, once I let the cars pass the road in front of me, (cars really do ruin the peace and tranquility, haven't people ever heard of parking their cars and walking?!) The Cemetery is set out beautifully and if you do happen to catch the streetcar from Canal Street, you also pass Greenwood Cemetery getting here, if that is of interest) For fans of Anne Rice, just like seeing her old homes, this is also worth a visit when you come to New Orleans.

A truly awe-inspiring place. Maybe the most beautiful cemetery in the City of the Dead. We drove around in comfort and at our leisure so we could inspect the tombs as we wished. Absolutely breathtaking. Truly a unique spot to visit.

I know you’re thinking, visiting a cemetery but the history and the thought of family history is beautiful. Interesting reading about how they worded the headstones unlike today. Take a walk I think you’d find it very gratifying.

Metairie / Lake Lawn cemetery is very big and can get confusing with how sections are labeled. If you are going in to this cemetery on your own to explore, I highly suggest a map. If you are only looking for specific tombs, look up where they are located beforehand!

Lake lawn is another massive cemetery in the same district as the cemeteries seem to be. It’s huge and seems like all above ground burials.
