Hollywood Forever Cemetery, Los Angeles: 4 reviews and 10 photos
Yes, I'm putting a cemetery on my list.
Hollywood Forever Cemetery is the final resting place of a number of Hollywood notables, including Rudolph Valentino, Norma Talmadge, Mel Blanc, gangster Bugsy Siegel and Douglas Fairbanks. This is a huge cemetery, with two indoor mausoleums and tons of outdoor graves. You will need a map of the grounds, which you can pick up as you enter the cemetery.
The cemetery was established in 1899 and is filled with tall, old-fashioned headstones and a few unusual ones shaped like obelisks or rocket ships. The cemetery has been used as a location for many Hollywood movies (you may recognize it from the graveyard scene in "L.A. Story"). You can also see the Hollywood sign from the grounds.
Obviously, this isn't a must-see for everyone, but it I think it's an interesting landmark here in L.A.
