We mainly went to see the hollywood legends area, like the ramones and musical legends. It was quiet the day we went. You can buy a map for $5 or just walk around but the legends are all together

Probably the best looking cemetery in LA with many famous stars incl. Chris Cornell, Mickey Rooney, Judy Garland and Dee Dee & Johnny Ramone. You can buy a printed map at the entrance, some of the graves are also available on Google Maps.

Visited the Hollywood forever cemetery one morning and had a nice, quiet stroll. The gardens are serene and very beautiful.

This is where my favorite French singer is buried. Joe Dassin is American but lived his life in France. Go to YouTube and listen to his singing. Beautiful French lyrics.

Hollywood undoubtedly conjures up images of movie
stars and high-end lifestyles, and to this day,
tourists flock here from around the world to see the
iconic Hollywood Walk of Fame, Chinese Theatre and to
catch a glimpse of the famed Hollywood sign up close.
Celebrity impersonators and crowds give these areas
the feeling of an amusement park while many clubs and
hotels fill up around the weekends for late-night

We didn’t take the tour. You can get a guidebook at the flower shop near the entrance and do your own. That’s what we did. Sorry for the confusion.

There is no need for a tour. You can just walk at your own pace. You can do some research online at their website.
