My boyfriend and I visited from Missouri. I love cemeteries, as I used to work at one, so I thought we would stop by. This is a beautiful cemetery with lots of West coast foliage. Photos only allowed of celebs' graves. You need a map...More

Considering where it is and the Hollywood mystique, I liked it! I didn't know about the Toto memorial. Mikey Rooney tomb was moving. Lots of Jewish plots and HUGE memorials! !!!!!! Peacocks all around. Free entrance.

This place was suggested after the Paramount Studios Tour. It’s situated just behind Paramount. It’s not too big, but big enough, with peacocks roaming the grounds ! There is a memorial to Hattie McDaniel and one for Toto ! Celeb graves include Art Pepper, Jayne...More

The grounds are beautiful. Peacocks strolling about the property are beautiful. It's just too large to take in if you only want to be there an hour or two. Spend the $5 on the map, it does help but I still had trouble finding people.

This is a beautiful cemetery that pays respectful homage to the dead. It's also the final home to many old Hollywood stars. As someone from the Midwest, I was expecting something a bit different, a bit more like the rural cemeteries of the Midwest and...More

We had a brief visit here on our trip to Los Angeles. The office was very helpful when I enquired about how to find a grave - was it a relative or a famous person? I was given a map and found my relatives with...More

We loved visiting here so much we could plan another trip. I was so touched to see the Hattie McDaniel and Toto memorials, just steps away from the Johnny Ramone memorial. It's a great location, just a few blocks from Paramount Studios.

What a fascinating cemetery. There are plenty of famous people there, but equalling interesting are the headstones of the non-famous people, or the people who clearly wanted to be famous. This place is a reminder of when cemeteries were beautiful parks, not just a place...More

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

There is no need for a tour. You can just walk at your own pace. You can do some research online at their website.
