Visiting the Bruce Lee Grave

By admin ~ September 18th, 2011 @ 9:19 am

One of the things you have to see when you go visit Seattle is Bruce Lee’s grave. A lot of people don’t know that Bruce Lee is buried in a cemetery just outside the city. He’s buried there alongside his son Brandon.

I’ve been to the cemetery a couple of times, and each time I go, there have been people there paying there respects. It is probably the most visited couple of graves there in Seattle.

One interesting thing about the grave site is that the grass around there has to be replaced a few times a year because there is so much foot traffic and people visiting the grave. Last time I visited, there was a family from New Zealand there sitting under a tree right next to the grave.

It can be a little tough to try and find the grave initially, but if you get headed in the right direction, you should be able to find it.

First of all, the cemetery is located at the following address:
Lakeview Cemetery
1554 15th. Ave. E.
Seattle, WA

It’s actually located a couple of miles northeast of downtown Seattle. Once you turn into the cemetery, head up the hill towards the flagpole. The graves are located just northeast of the flagpole. You’ll most likely see another car or people sitting nearby and you can pretty much be sure that Bruce Lee’s grave is right there.

There is a great view from the site and so you’ll want to make sure that you take your camera.

One thing you might want to make a note of while you’re there is that at the edge of the roundabout there by the site is the Arthur Denny family gravesite. Arthur Denny was actually one of the founding fathers of Seattle.

All in all, if you grew up watching Bruce Lee movies like I did, then visiting the gravesite is a nice afternoon activity.
