I visit Hollywood Forever every time I am in Hollywood. It is a beautiful memorial park which helps transport you back into the Golden Age of Hollywood. One of the only cemetaries in the area where you really are welcome to pay your respects to your favourite entertainers. The resident cats and peacocks also add to the experience (watch the... More

This is a true LA cultural experience that you need to pair with a day of activity in Hollywood. So interesting, historic and fun

I'm a big fan of the Ramones so as so this was top of the list of things to do in LA for me. We looked up the location of Johnny and Dee Dee's graves online beforehand, and they were very easy to find. Really cool place, and not too far a walk from Hollywood blvd either.

...but I found it fascinating! This cemetery gives an interesting insight into early Hollywood residents. It also tells a story of how those, with far to much money, desire to be remembered. Micky Rourke, Johnny Ramone, Don Adams, Toto - if you're looking to see a famous grave, this cemetery is full of them. To avoid wandering the huge site... More

I have taken the tour before and do recommend it for first time visit. Thereafter no matter what purchase the cemetery map as it's just to easy to get turned... More

I visited the cemetery as part of a guided tour and the commentary was amazing. If you visit on your own, do some prior research. For instance, there is a dog on Alfalfa's grave and I read that it was supposed to be Petey, the dog. But it doesn't look like Petey at all. Our guide told us a reason... More

The Hollywood Forever Cemetery Dia de Los Muertos Celebration is but yet another appropriation of Mexican-Indigenous Culture complete with a total disregard of what this holy day signifies for the real veneration of ancestors. Their three stage (ring circus) is yet another example of how clueless people become when their main motivation is dollars. Sad.

We love visiting old cemeteries so we knew we had to visit this one. The view of the Hollywood sign from here is pretty amazing. The grounds are well maintained and tall palm trees are beautiful. It is very peaceful with water fountains all around. It is free to drive into the cemetery and park. You can go into the... More

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.

Staying in Hollywood

Neighbourhood 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.
