A little planning makes this a much better experience. It's a big place with a lot of different areas to explore. I appreciate the fact that the families of the departed are willing to allow us tourists to roam around the cemetery freely. It's beautiful and peaceful.

I was expecting something more spectacular, with known people. This place was just a local cemetery with one or two exceptions.

This is fascinating insight into Hollywood glamour. An oasis of the bizarre. We saw Johhny Ramone's and Toto's tomb. A celebration of death. Worth visiting on way or instead of grot of walk of fame. We're not in Kansas now.

I am a huge Ramones fan so visiting the Hollywood Forever Cemetery was definitely on our agenda. It was our first stop as soon as we left the airport. Johnny And Dee Dee Ramone are buried here. It's a fantastic tribute to these legends of punk music. A must for anyone who loves the Ramones. It's easy to find and... More

Jonny Ramone, Rudolph Valentino, Mel Brooks and Douglas Fairbanks are a few of the famous buried here. The cemetery itself is not very attractive and the plots are very crowded together. It is an ok detour if you are into seeing where people are buried otherwise, don't bother.

A friend took us there , an unexpected stop. Its a free entry and you just park your car and walk around. With the amount of celebrity's buried there you could take hours and hours to walk around. However I used my phone to navigate to various people I wanted to find. Find a grave website gives you geographic info,... More

The cemetery visit is free, but I bought a $5 map because the cemetery is very large, and it's easy to get lost. Most of the graves and crypts of the stars are in the back left corner. It's sad that some of the most notable stars, especially of early Hollywood, have very small markers and bushes grown up around... More

Well it's a huge cemetery and I went because I had done the dearly departed tour to the Westwood village. Well it's a $5 charge for a map of the stars final resting place. I only knew a few of the famous names. I paid my respects and left. My suggestion is if you're going to go to the cemetery... More

We just parked on the street right across the cementary, free parking. Then we walked around, it's a nice cementary. We went to Johnny Ramone's grave. Another famous grave is Mickey Rooney.

Staying in Hollywood

Neighborhood Profile
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.
