The 2012 tour season at Forest Lawn
Buffalo Rising - over 4 years
So often when you pass by the 269-acre Forest Lawn Cemetery you do just that - pass it by. That's why it's so important to note that the historic site now hosts tours seven days a week. There are more tours than ever and there's even a new 'trolley' to give tourists rides in comfort and style. The trolley is handicapped accessible and climate-controlled.  While there are many organized tours given on a regular basis, we must not forget that self-guided walkabouts are also very popular. Whether on foot or bike, the history of Buffalo can be found on some of the most impressive monuments dedicated to the people who built this city. There is also wonderful public art found in beautiful settings, with fountains, rolling hills and streams, wildlife... there's even a Sunday in the Cemetery Chapel, Concert and Lecture Series (see special events).  Sunday In The Cemetery Tours Back by popular demand, Forest Lawn's famous Sunday In The Cemetery tours run weekly beginning S ...
