So I do weird, not talking full-on weird but visiting a graveyard is getting there I suppose! Taking time out to visit here was a big ask especially as we are only in LA for 3 days and haven't even began to scratch the surface....More

Joe DiMaggio selected this smallish, non-touristy cemetery for Marilyn Monroe and she has since then been joined by other show business celebrities. Hidden by tall buildings on all four sides, the small side street entrance is easy to miss.
