  • 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.
