Hollywood Forever is a really interesting and beautifully kept cemetery.
Get yourself organised before you go, as it is pretty big! So print off a map (It will cost you $5 at the flower shop) and a list of tombstones you want to see, as you can easily spend a couple of hours wandering around.
There are literally dozens of famous people here, who helped shape Hollywood and make it into the town it is today. Take your camera.
The only thing I would say is that the owners/management are missing a trick by not selling a booklet giving you more information about some of the more famous residents. The map is fine, but a booklet would be better!

Look one way and you see Paramount Studios. Look the other and you can see the Hollywood sign! Many, many celebrity graves here in this old cemetery. Lots and lots of beautiful tombstones. Staff is helpful here. Just try to print out a listing of who you want to see and where they are prior to getting here. If you have trouble, the staff can help!

Yes, my relatives and friends are there, but I'd go anyway. You enter another world of yesteryear when you stroll or drive among the graves of Hollywood Legends. This place has stature, tradition, and a sense of humor. Any cemetery that shows movies and has costume parties is my kind of home.

You have no idea how many interesting people are buried here.
great place as morbid as this might sound--it's great for picnic's--stroll around and you've seen old school Hollywood.
during the summer the film noir is shown on the building--folks line up for hours---totally cool --and such a unique treasure.

Remembering that it is still a place to show the proper respect.It was interesting to wander the place looking for famous names.Got to see Cecille B de Mille's grave.But best of all was the fantastic view of the Hollywood sign over the cemetery.
