Hollywood Forever is a great place to get away from all people and cars and hassles of L.A. for a little while. Lots of celebrity final resting places to seek out. It makes for a good walking tour of the grounds. You might get lucky and get to buy a bacon wrapped hot dog aka the L.A. dog from a... More

After a few days visiting the LA area, the Cinespia movie screening at the Hollywood forever cemetery was like a breath of fresh air. Great atmosphere outside in the cemetery at night and fabulous vibes from the crowd seeing the movie. The audience engaged with the movie without being distracting and the eating and drinking was a definite plus without... More

Lots of celebrities and musicians are buried here in Forever Cemetery.Everyone from Mel Blanc to Don Adams to Carl Switzer, aka Alfalfa from the Little Rascals. Easy to get to and there's a great view of the Hollywood sign as you exit the cemetery. The cemetery is huge but you can go to the small gift shop like we did... More

You must be asking, great movie experience? On Saturday evenings during the summer months they show a movie agains one of the mausoleum and it's a great experience. You can bring your own food and drinks and that includes alcohol. The movies that are shown are older movies...the night we went they showed Jaws. Haven't seen that movie in years... More

This is an oasis of calm and tranquility in noisy, miserable, overcrowded, pretentious Hollywood, Southern California. Not only that, but you'll get some walking exercise and a be on a treasure hunt of graves, markers, and statuary. But first you'll need to engage with the "Flower Shop Lady" to buy the treasure map, because without it you'll spend hours wandering... More

You won't be creeped out! Honest. You won't. If you are a fan of movies, particular older one's this is the place to "see" some of your favorite stars. Well, at least where they rest. A map is available but my wife and I explored on our own. We were somewhat on a minro time limit but we did spend... More

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.
