I visited Hollywood Forever Cemetery on May 14 while we were in Los Angeles. There are guided group tours available but none were scheduled the day I was there. Upon entering the grounds, there is a flower/gift shop on the right where you can get a map showing the resting places of many famous movie/television personalities---Estelle Getty (The Golden Girls), Carl Switzer (Alfalfa on Our Gang comedies), Mel Blanc, Rudolf Valentino, Fay Wray and many more.
This is a very well kept, manicured garden-style park, with free roaming peacocks. If you go on your own like I did, and walk the grounds, be sure and take bottled water to drink...it got up 100 degrees the day I visited. The park is located on Santa Monica Boulevard and the surrounding area is very busy, but inside the cemetery you hear no road noise. It is a very respectful dignified cemetery, full of history.
