Large cemetery in Hollywood where some famous people are buried. We wandered the grounds respectfully. Saw Mel Blanc's grave (the voices of many characters in Looney Tunes cartoons) and Estelle Getty ("Golden Girls). You can see the Hollywood sign in the distance.

Drove thru and loved the beautiful scenery and foliage. Peacocks roamed around and didn't seem scared of people at all. We didn't pay for a map because you can look up the information online.

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.
