I loved walking the grounds of this amazing cemetery. There are so many film and TV stars buried here, even the crypt of Valentino. Spend a couple of hours wandering and contemplating. It does a soul good!

Such a deal at $20 to have Kari take you around the cemetery, pointing out the legendary figures in cinematic and TV history. It is a fascinating place and to have someone like Kari who guides you through in such a tasteful and respectful way...More

This is an odd place to spend time but the grounds are lovely and the day was beautiful. Just walking around looking at some of the older graves of many famous people was very interesting.. It is still an active cemetery but not so busy.

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
