The Golden State has many beautiful vistas, and the cemeteries of California are no exception.

There are plenty of options for a beautiful final resting place for loved ones to visit and experience peaceful reflection.
You'll find all of nature’s wonders as featured amenities in our list of California cemeteries. For example, if it’s mountains you’re after, Oakmont Memorial Park in Lafayette offers spectacular views of Mt. Diablo and Briones Regional Park, while Olivet Memorial Park in Colma is at the base of the San Bruno Mountains. Olivehurst has a view of the Sierra Nevada mountains and the Sutter Buttes mountain range, and is also the resting place for veterans of many wars, including the Civil War, Spanish War, World Wars I and II, and the Korean and Vietnam wars. Other history buffs may prefer the state capital of Sacramento, with its roots dating back to the gold rush. There is also Sacramento Memorial Lawn in the Little Saigon district, a thriving community of Vietnamese-Americans.
And then of course there’s Melrose Abbey Memorial Park in West Anaheim Junction, known as the western gate to Los Angeles, which appeals to baseball fans and Disney enthusiasts alike since it’s located near both Angels Stadium and Disneyland. There are many more California cemeteries that are just as diverse, welcoming, accommodating, and beautiful as the state itself.
