Best Place to Contemplate Mortality 

Lake View Cemetery

You don't have to be a Harold and Maude type to occasionally want to get away from the city for some hard thinking about what life and/or death really means. When that urge strikes, amble over to Lake View Cemetery, the perfect setting for such philosophical pursuits. Its winding paths through sprawling grounds are perfect for pacing, and they never end in mid-epiphany. You'll find famous names like John D. Rockefeller's, as well as entire families you never heard of -- a reminder that we all share the same fate.
