Interesting place to visit. But you should know where you're going before you go. It's truly a slice of Los Angeles history. Yes, this is a cemetery and you may ask why you should visit the cemetery on vacation, but many people use the memorial park for walking or picnicking. Here are beautifully landscaped rolling lawns and the mausoleums that are breathtaking. Worth to visit.
More than just a cemetery, Forest Lawn Glendale is an important part of LA culture. There are graves of many famous movie stars, but the art and architecture is why you come. The Great Mausoleum is one of the most ornate buildings in LA and has replicas of many famous sculptures in Europe. The Hall of the Crucifixion has one of the largest paintings on earth. The park itself is stunningly beautiful. Eaton truly accomplished his goal of making Forest Lawn a memorial park and I would highly recommend a visit.
