    According to recent travelers, this cemetery isn't a must for everyone, for obvious reasons. But if you enjoy Victorian-era art, you'll probably find these monuments and mausoleums of east Louisville interesting to behold. Recent visitors described the cemetery's atmosphere as "beautiful" and "serene" and said it's a worthy addition to your itinerary no matter the season.

    For most people, the highlight of visiting is a stop by the burial plot of Harland Sanders, better known as Colonel Sanders of Kentucky Fried Chicken fame. According to rumor, Sanders was buried in his characteristic starch white suit and black string tie. Cave Hill Cemetery is also the final resting place for legendary boxer and activist Muhammad Ali.
