I visited Hollywood Forever Cemetery on May 14 while we were in Los Angeles. There are guided group tours available but none were scheduled the day I was there. Upon entering the grounds, there is a flower/gift shop on the right where you can get a map showing the resting places of many famous movie/television personalities---Estelle Getty (The Golden Girls),...

This beautiful cemetery, although not as large or grand as the Père Lachaise Cemetery in Paris, has a similar charm. My wife and I did a quick drive into the cemetery and enjoyed the well kept grounds and landscaping. The highlights of the cemetery include Johnny Ramones headstone, Mel Blanc's "That's All Folks", gothic crypts, and the peacocks roaming the... More

We didn't get a map but walked around on our own. Found a few famous folks. We think this place has seen better days.

Take a break from the madness of Hollywood to stroll through quiet grounds, well landscaped, and an escape while also having some nice flavor that you won't find elsewhere.

In addition to being the final resting place for many celebrities, summer brings a whole other reason to visit Hollywood Forever. Movies are screened here outdoors & you're allowed to bring your own food (no BBQing allowed) and your own drinks, including beer or wine. As you'll be viewing the movie from the grass area, bring a blanket to sit... More

It's fun to find the graves of classic Hollywood celebs and pay tribute here. Cinespia is also fun to check out, but has become incredibly crowded.

The rich, famous and infamous are buried or entombed in this restful garden like cemetery. From Estelle Getty to Bugsy Seigle to a special marker for Hattie McDaniels (who was not allowed to be buried there because of her race) this is a little bit of history. Although not available on our visit - often films are shown here -... More

We lived near by, so we decided to visit there for a bit before we head back to Dallas. The cemetery is very well kept and clean. But it is very interesting to see in death that people are still separated by religion.

Doesn't take more than 15-20 minutes, drive slowly around and the main graves/stones you want to see are probably close to the road. Including Mel Blanc, Toto from Wizard of Oz, Joey Ramone, and Hattie McDaniel who played Mammy in Gone With the Wind. Nice leisurely visit with no charge.

Staying in Hollywood

Neighbourhood Profile
Hollywood
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 partying - the Hollywood club scene is a haven for thumping music and table-side bottle service. But parties aren’t the only way to enjoy this area, many visitors come to the neighborhood to sit back with a picnic to watch a performance at the Hollywood Bowl and those looking to stay fit trek along nature trails in the Hollywood hills and in Griffith Park.
