This grave site is interesting in that it is the final resting place for Frank Sinatra. If Frank Sinatra was one of your favourite music artists check out this attraction otherwise I would pass.

We were amazed at how plain and peaceful the Cemetery is.. very well kept up, and staff were helpful. Frank Sinatra's headstone was very simple and nice, but I wish we had taken a rose to place on it. Family members are buried near him, as is Jilly Rizzo. So glad we were able to pay our respects to Frank... More

This is just a normal everyday cemetery but it has many famous icons buried here. I was and still am shocked at the simplicity of Frank Sinatra's gravesite. It's both sad and a reminder of the futileness of earthy wealth and fame. Frank is buried simply in a row with other family, friends and strangers. I ranked this as 4... More

If you want to see Frank Sinatra, Sonny Bono and others markers I say take a trip here, beautiful quiet cemetery and I was taken back by how humble all the markers are no big monuments just all flat markers which is nice no matter how big the celebrity you get the feeling that we are all the same in...

One might think that wandering through a cemetery isn't exactly the Palm Springs thing to do, however, if it means visiting the final resting place of one of Palm Springs favorite sons, it's a "must do". This unassuming cemetery also houses the earthly remains of actor Cameron Mitchell, songstress & comedian Betty Hutton, Magda Gabor, the Gabor sister's mother Jolie... More

Mr. Sinantra is buried with other family members in a simple grave in Cathedral City. The respect one pays to him (if so inclined) and is not the grave site.

Frank Sinatra's grave site looks like everyone else. It is just a plaque and his friends are buried near him. People leave little bottles of Jack Daniels. Take the Palm Springs Historical Walking Tour on Friday's at 9:30 and see the home and history of Sinatra. Call 760-323.8297 for reservations.

Amazing that Frank didn't have more of burial site. It's a simple grave marker near where the much of the rest of his family is also buried. There is a nice brochure available from the cemetery office that tells you where the site is (it happens to be right next to the office). Also buried in the same cemetery is... More

Amazing how understated is the famous crooner's final resting spot. Can only assume it is because he chose to be buried by his parents. Sonny Bono is also resting here along with Busby Berkeley of 30's movie fame. All the graves are marked by simple plaques flush with the ground-. So very unlike what one would expect of Southern California.
