  • I know this is a cemetery and burial place of famous people but let me tell you this, it is not worth the visit. You will end up in your car driving around in circles and there is not many celebrities as promised as it is normal people mainly. The only positive I will give to it is that the scenery is beautiful and the fields are well kept. But in my opinion, I do not think Hollywood Forever is worth the visit.
  • First time visit. Definitely much to see, so make sure you have all day if you're trying to locate celebrity graves. The security guards/guides are very friendly and informative.
  • Stunning graves from the people who made Hollywood! friendly staff, obliging to tourists! This place is incredible and somber. PLEASE BE RESPECTFUL!!! the scenery is breath taking and its therapeutic walking through here. It takes about 2 hours to take your time and stroll through. Be sure to bring a camera and your walking shoes. There is a florist on site and l
  • Supported a great charity event (Simply Divine) for the LA LGBT Center, while eating delicious food from some of the best chefs in Los Angeles, last night. The event was in the middle of the Forever Hollywood Cemetery but it felt like I had escaped to some magical place with friendly people, and fantastic champagne. There were vegetarian, and vegan options at many of the tables, and plenty of meat options for those who eat it. There was a fun band playing. There were several wine options in the VIP section, which also included its own private bar, and seating area. Eating delicious food under the stars, with beautiful music playing in the background made for a really enjoyable night, and it was for a truly amazing cause. We will be back next year, and the year after, and the year after, and the year after...
  • Really beautifully kept cemetery. It's MASSIVE so bring water and good walking shoes. The Mausoleums and peacocks are gorgeous!
