This was a must see for me, I made sure before I left Australia that this was on our tour. It was a lovely place of rest for so many great stars, Marilyn Monroe, Dean Martin, Natalie Wood and many more...loved it!!!

This is just a cemetery. Lots of famous Hollywood types buried there. But it's a cemetery. Very well kept. But it's a cemetery. Very peaceful though right off a busy thoroughfare. But it's a cemetery. Surely can think of something more interesting to do.

I absolutely love coming to this cemetery. It's the final testing place of many of Hollywood's biggest stars. I'm only 29 but I grew up watching a lot of them on TV reruns and old movies. It's still crazy to me how you can get within 6 feet of these celebrities now that they're dead, but when they were alive... More

Had a little difficulty finding this place. There's a small side street near a parking garage entrance. Being hidden definitely adds to the charm. There were no a lot of people here and it was nice to stroll around under the trees and see who you can find. Roy Orbison's grave is not marked. There is a bathroom here off... More

This is not easy to find, make sure you google map it first as the cab driver will have to put it in the gps. Cost about $10 from Beverly Hills to get there but was an easy walk back t Beverly Hills from the cemetary. Lovely small intimate park. Make sure you printout a map before hand of where... More

This small hidden cemetery is not only beautiful, it's full of celebrities as their final resting place. You don't really need a map as you can walk the whole place and see the stars graves in a hour or two. Marilyn Monroe's is the most popular here but the nicest memorial is Don Knotts. Everyone from Dean Martin to Frank... More

I found this place difficult to find. This cemetery is tucked away from the road frontage. It is a small but beautiful cemetery and very serene. I was surprised to find Farrah Fawcett next to Rodney Dangerfied. I had no map with me but i had time. It was definately worth the visit to Marilyn Monroe resting place and to... More

I will admit that this cemetery is pretty hard to find because it's so small. We were standing right in front of it and didn't realize it. Luckily an employee was walking down the sidewalk and he told us that we were at the right place. It's so small in fact that you can look at every single grave in... More

Walking distance 1/2 mile from UCLA 1218 Glendon Ave .intersecting with Wilshire Blvd. is a very small and serene cemetery of many well know celebrities such as General George Patton, Marilynn Monroe and Rodney Dangerfield (my favorite grave marker). Worth the visit and helps keep life in perspective. There is no cost , no food, drinks or bathrooms available either.
