It's fun to find the graves of classic Hollywood celebs and pay tribute here. Cinespia is also fun to check out, but has become incredibly crowded.

The rich, famous and infamous are buried or entombed in this restful garden like cemetery. From Estelle Getty to Bugsy Seigle to a special marker for Hattie McDaniels (who was not allowed to be buried there because of her race) this is a little bit of history. Although not available on our visit - often films are shown here -... More

We lived near by, so we decided to visit there for a bit before we head back to Dallas. The cemetery is very well kept and clean. But it is very interesting to see in death that people are still separated by religion.

Doesn't take more than 15-20 minutes, drive slowly around and the main graves/stones you want to see are probably close to the road. Including Mel Blanc, Toto from Wizard of Oz, Joey Ramone, and Hattie McDaniel who played Mammy in Gone With the Wind. Nice leisurely visit with no charge.

Lots to take in here. The grounds are well kept and you can feel the age of the place as you walk through as you pass massive headstones. There is a big lake that sort of is central to everything. Lots of famous people here, try looking them up before you go.

OK, my grandparents are buried here (in the Jewish section, Beth Olam), but Hollywood Forever is for everyone, resident and visitor alike. Just down the road from Paramount Studios and Astro Burger, it's a great spot for a walk and discovery of all the famous people buried here. In the summer, there's an outdoor movie series, another great event. Really... More

An oasis of peace in the hustle and bustle of Hollywood. A beautifully maintained cemetery. You can drive around in your car and stop at your convenience to stroll around the grounds. Contains very fascinating monuments to deceased stars, but also graves of ordinary citizens dating back to 1895. My personal favorite was Hal Brooks grave: "That's all folks".

Highlight: Stumbling upon the monument to 'Toto' (the dog in Wizard of Oz) and discovering the true reason for it's placement- my daughter was fascinated! Lowlight: Tour group

It's a nice place to walk around with a very beautiful pond, was cool to see the tombs of some of Hollywood's Legends (Cecil B Demill, Tyrone Power amoung others). Not exactly a must-see but if you have the time its worth a quick visit

Being a huge fan I had to to come and see Johnny & Dee's from the Ramones graves, nice place to walk around and see the celebrity graves of the who's who buried here. They had a bit of rain when we were here so there was some big puddles to navigate. Ps: check out the giant mausoleum's, would be... More

Staying in Hollywood

Neighbourhood Profile
Hollywood
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.
