    A Grand Resting Place for Hollywood's Elite and Talented Actors and Musicians
    Nicely kept cemetery with many well known Hollywood stars. Of course my first stop was the Judy Garland Pavilion mausoleum memorial area and it was touching. If you get a chance grab a guide from the main office so that you know how to take your own tour from the main office upon entry of the grounds. It was a warm day and many peacocks let you know they rule the place... when I went and the sky was clear. You get a calming feeling reading the tombstones and reminiscing about the actors who portrayed parts in many famous movies. If you have your iPhone simply look them up on IMDb in case you are wondering who did what. I especially made sure to stop by Mel Blanc's resting place and thought what a great talent. So many cartoons encompassed his unique and talented voiceovers. RIP Hollywood entertainers... you deserve a good rest for all your work in the movies and beyond. Thanks for the memories.

    Very interesting visit
    A very big center with all different areas so if you don’t have all day you need to know roughly what you want to see. A lot of famous stars buried in different areas but if you ask you will be advised which areas to go to. For us personally, we found it very interesting and calming.

    A definite for a Taphophile
    If you visit cemeteries like I do this is a must. Not only visit if you're into celebrities but just for the cemetery itself. If is hidden in a not so glamorous section of Hollywood but what a gem. Did not have enough time , would definitely visit again My sister and I are Taphophile's and now I can cross it off my list.

A great way to spend a couple of hours; Tour maps can be purchased from the flower shop at $1. Note this is still active cemetery so respect should be shown.

The Hollywood Forever Cemetery is much do when in Hollywood. It is the resting place to many of Hollywood 's Celebrities including Judy Garland and Jonny Ramone. As you walk around you see that the cemetery is filled with so much history and grounds are well maintained,. The sites are just beautiful. There any many events movies during the year on the Fairbanks lawn.

We went here on a whim. I recommend researching first. We were lost. If we had more time I would have purchased the map and spent more time. It was very beautiful!!

Great place to take a drive/walk and see the final resting place for some famous people - Judy Garland, Charlie Chaplain, two of the Ramone brothers, Burt Reynolds........also a good view of the Hollywood sign. Free admission but a map does cost $6.

When my husband said let's go to the Hollywood Forever Cemetry for the afternoon, I was so against it!
However, it is a beatiful cemetry with well kept lawns and gardens. The amount of famous people's grave we saw, we incredible.
It is definitely a stop most people would not make but well worth it if you have a few hours spare.
