Quite a hike from our hotel as we could not go through the back of Paramount Studios but well laid out. A map is available from the flower shop showing the resting places of various stars. Useful to locate specific people.

but this one, unfortunately is not that picturesque. Great, if you're looking for celebrity sites but otherwise a little shabby. My favorites were the personal displays people had installed around their loved ones' final resting place. Ranging from exuberant to tender and bittersweet these small expressions of love and remembrance more than made up for the grounds lack of care.

Definitely the coolest spot to hang, who knew a cemetery could be so great? I've spent some naughty nights drinking cheap whisky under the stars with several punk rock friends after a night of fiendish fetish behavior. Definitely the coolest cemetery around.

although i've been to Los Angeles many times, my first visit to Hollywood Forever didn't occur until recently. it's 64 acres of lush greenery, and serves as the final resting place for many stars of yesteryear. they also hold film screenings and concerts from time to time. the area of Santa Monica Blvd where it's located is a little run...

My first time here was for a screening of Blade Runner at night. It was an amazing experience walking through this historic spot to view one of my favorite pieces of cinema. Seeing these magnificent tombs and tombstone, the lush landscape and beauty of the grounds is quite breathtaking. Considering this is a resting place for the dead, I wouldn't... More

Many famous stars and other film dignitaries are interred here and we were intrigued by some of the unique headstones and epitaphs. But the grounds were unkept and in need of a maintenance overhaul. Still worth a look but don't expect Forest Lawn.

Make sure you wear some good walking shoes and be prepared to be amazed! To walk in the place where famous people have been laid to rest is quite the experience, and to be able to see all the unique headstones of "not so famous" people is just as exciting! Walking through the cemetery and seeing the of the headstones... More

Have always wanted to visit the celebrity cemeteries of LA. Prior to our weeks trip to the city I did all the research, downloaded the guides from the seeing-stars website (invaluable) We were however somewhat shocked and disappointed by the neglected grounds. Most of the graves are semi covered with grass. -Forest lawn with it's acres of grounds ensure that... More

Last movie I saw at the cemetery was Willy Wonka back in July but every time I've been here it's been a great experience. Giving it 4 stars instead of 5 just because parking is always a little tricky if you’re going to a Cinespia screening even though it’s probably not an issue if you go during the day when... More

Staying in Hollywood

Neighborhood 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.
