We were in LA for a couple of days and decided to do the "Stars' Cemeteries" tours! We went to Forest Lawn Memorial Park, Pearce Brothers Westwood Village and Hollywood Forever. We saw lots of star's burial spots and have to say were very disappointed by Hollywood Forever. It was very poorly maintained, weeds and grass everywhere. Lots of stones... More

A beautiful and tranquil oasis in the middle of Hollywood with a lot of Hollywood history as numerous celebrities are buried here. The cemetery is well-maintained and the lake is beautiful. There are even peacocks who live there and roam the grounds.

Last Thursday our family of four was lucky enough to attend a Tame Impala concert at Hollywood Forever Cemetery. I would probably not have considered this as a venue, but the band was going to offer two shows there and we were able to get tickets for their Thursday show. We paid $20 to park on-site. Ticketfly sends a very... More

We went with friends, who said they used to lunch by Rudolph Valentino's bench. I wish I could've spent more time exploring, but the others weren't as interested in seeing the monuments to the dead. It is a very serene place. If you have time, check out the films they show on weekends, I think, but get there early to... More

Had a couple of hours to spare so we decided to visit the cemetary to do some (dead) star spotting. I think you can get a amp but we just aimlessly wandered about so we missed most of them. The cemetary is really big so I would recommend talking a guided tour or at least getting a map which I... More

The Hollywood Forever cemetery is a famous last resting place for the stars and also a famous tourist destination. It is however surprisingly serene and spacious when you visit it and at the same time extravagant as could be expected from Hollywood.

If you are a movie buff and like visiting a cemetry, a walking tour with Karie Bible, the current 'Lady in Black'. I organised a mid week tour with Karie before we left Australia, as we were not going to be there on the weekend when she normally conducts tours. Karie is a mind of information and has interesting stories... More

As Hollywood royalty. The headstones are so interesting with quotes! Young and old , realty mogules. See how long ppl lived , the demographic ethnic of old Hollywood. We walked a... More

It is a nice walk around the grounds. Do not go out of your way to visit. It is incredible how much is spent on mausoleums, It is as if one family would try to outdo another. Many famous people are interned there. We only saw Mel Blanc. That;s All Folks!

Hollywood Forever Cemetery is located directly behind Paramount Studios. You can obtain a map for a nominal fee when entering the grounds which I would highly recommend. Well kept grounds and numerous starts of yesteryear are buried here. They also show films periodically on the grounds which is very nice. Keep in mind this is a cemetery so act accordingly

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.
