Best Cemetery

Lake View Cemetery

There are two reasons why most people end up at Lake View Cemetery, just north of Volunteer Park in Capitol Hill: They're either there for a funeral, or want to see where Bruce Lee is buried. The martial-arts star's final resting place - right next to his son Brandon, who met his tragic end thanks to a prop-gun accident on the set of The Crow- is undoubtedly the cemetery's biggest attraction. Yet for all its star power, Lake View is just as impressive considered strictly as a condensed primer on Seattle history, including as it does the graves of some members of the Denny Party, the city's first occupants; William Grose, the city's second black resident; and retailer John W. Nordstrom. Also, as the name suggests, the view ain't half bad either. CALEB HANNAN
