Lakeview Cemetery is probably the most spectacular graveyard in the city. There aren't too many trees to obstruct the view, just a few to shelter mourners. Many of Seattle's pioneers are buried here, including Princess Angeline, Dexter Horton, Doc Maynard and his wife, Catherine. Kung fu fans also flock to the graves of movie hero Bruce Lee and his son, actor Brandon Lee. Even if the dead do not intrigue you, this is to explore and pay your respects to the heroes who have gone on.
I decided to visit this cemetary to find the tombs of Bruce Lee and his son Brandon Bruce Lee. There is no clear markers to indicate where their tombs are located (their tombs are about half way up, make a left and is about half way down on your left hand side). When I was there, there was a crowd in front of the two tombs, so you might get lucky to actually find it. There is no cost to get on the cemetary (yes...that means its free). Apparently once a year, the tombs are covered with flowers.
