On one of our driving trips through New England, we stopped at the Sleepy Hollow Cemetery. Sleepy Hollow Cemetery is located in Concord, MA, and was right along our route back to New York after leaving Boston.
Sleepy Hollow Cemetery is not related to The Legend Of Sleepy Hollow, the short story by Washington Irving. The Sleepy Hollow in the story is in Tarrytown, NY. Interestingly, Washington Irving is buried here in the cemetery.
Sleepy Hollow Cemetery is Concord’s largest cemetery and has around 10,000 graves. It is located one block east of Monument Square, on Bedford Street.
One of the most popular spots to visit in the Sleepy Hollow Cemetery is called Authors Ridge. Authors Ridge contains the gravesites of Henry David Thoreau (1862), Nathaniel Hawthorne (1864), Ralph Waldo Emerson (1882), Louisa May Alcott (1888) and her father, Bronson Alcott (1888).
Some other notables that are buried in Sleepy Hollow Cemetery are:
Elizabeth Arden, Andrew Carnegie, Walter Chrysler, Washington Irving, William Rockefeller, Thomas J. Watson.

According to Wikipedia, a honeymoon vacation is the traditional trip taken by newlyweds to celebrate their marriage, and presumably, consummate it. Today, honeymoons are often celebrated in places that are secluded, exotic, warm, or otherwise considered special and romantic — for example, warm, sunny beaches, scenic coastlines, and mountain retreats.

Antonia van der Meer – Editor in Chief of Modern Bride magazine said about honeymoon vacations , “The honeymoon is all about died-and-gone-to-heaven pleasure. It’s a trip for pulling out all the stops.”

In 2003, Modern Bride magazine polled travel agents for the top destinations for honeymoon vacations.
