“Personal Favorite L.A. Cemetery”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 31, 2013

I've visited Los Angeles/Hollywood, the surrounding area a total of two times. I'll be visiting L.A. and the area again in October 2013. To make a long story short, if your new to the area, or planning to visit Los Angeles/Hollywood, SoCal. Hollywood Forever Cemetery should definitely be on your list of attractions to checkout. Many of the movers and shakers of early filmdom are buried there. You have silent era heartthrob Rudolf Valentino, prolific film director Cecil B. DeMille, and an insane amount of other Hollywood luminaries. A highlight of the cemetery are the tours given by Karie Bible. If history is your thing, you will get all that and more at Hollywood Forever.

“Excellent tour that you can walk by yourself”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 21, 2013

We had a little difficult finding parking since we did not know that we could park inside. Then it took us a few minutes to find a map that could take us to Johnny and Dee Dee Ramone graves. They sell them at the flower store for $5 that is at the entrance. The place if beautiful, nice to walk. Perfectly secured.

“This is another Free attraction”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 15, 2013

Hollywood Forever Cemetery
This stop has to be one of the weirdest stops on Route 66, but it is a free attraction, and it can be interesting, so pull of a see the Dead centre of LA.
All my reviews are written from the heart, and how each place made me feel, I never write a negative review, due to the fact that if I have a problem or complaint, I open my mouth while I am there, let’s be fair and give people a chance to rectify problems, stop all this negativity.

“An interesting place to visit.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 10, 2013 via mobile

A lot of Old Hollywood and Silent films stars are buried here along with memorials of other stars. Among those buried here are Rudolph Valentino, Fay Wray, Jayne Mansfield, Cecil B. Demille, Alfalfa (Little Rascals), and Estelle Getty. The mausoleum closes at 4pm. They also show movies at night here. This is a picturesque cemetery. A must do if you are in the Hollywood area.
