The 2013 L.A. Gravecation – Introduction to 8 Insane Days in Hollywood

For those of you reading this. The time has come once again where yours truly The Motor City Morbid One, will make a cross-country journey to Los Angeles. This article will serve as an intro to the cemeteries, I plan to checkout, and other morbidly fun activities.

Below is a tentative itinerary I’ve planned out. Now keep in mind I’ll be landing at LAX on Tuesday October 1st around 1pm. After landing, getting my car rental, and checking-in at the hotel. The first thing I plan to do is find a cigar shop near the hotel I’ll be staying at. If I have any time after that, I might checkout San Fernando Mission Cemetery, or nearby Eden Memorial Park.

On Wednesday October 2nd I plan to visit Mt. Sinai Memorial Park, and maybe Forest Lawn Memorial Park – Hollywood Hills. Being that the four above cemeteries are a short distance from the Mission Hills, CA hotel I’ll be staying at. I figure I’ll get them knocked outta the way first before the weekend activities start. The Dearly Departed Weekend is pretty much why I came back to Los Angeles. October 3rd through the 6th I’ll be doing stuff related to the 2nd Annual Dearly Departed Death Hag Weekend.  October 7th & 8th are currently up in the air.

Below is a list of cemeteries I plan to visit. I seriously doubt I’ll get to all of them. But all the cemeteries nearest to the top are key cemeteries I want to visit.

Eden Memorial Park
11500 Sepulveda Blvd
Mission Hills, CA 91345

San Fernando Mission Cemetery
11160 Stranwood Ave,
Mission Hills, CA 91345

Forest Lawn Memorial Park – Hollywood Hills
6300 Forest Lawn Drive
Los Angeles, CA 90068

Mt. Sinai Memorial Park
5950 Forest Lawn Drive
Los Angeles, CA 90068

Forest Lawn Memorial Park – Glendale
1712 S. Glendale Avenue

Inglewood Park Cemetery
720 East Florence Ave.
Inglewood, CA 90301

Angelus-Rosedale cemetery
1831 W. Washington Blvd.
Los Angeles, CA 90007

So that pretty much covers it. Stay tuned for updates every few days, where I’ll be giving a rundown of gravesites I’ve found, and things I did in Los Angeles.

    I hope you’re having a great trip. I love Angelus-Rosedale — it’s one of my favorites in LA.

      Hey Loren, I’m having a great time out here. I’m gonna try extremely hard to visit Angelus-Rosedale cemetery as the previous two times I’ve been out here I didn’t visit the cemetery. I’m currently working on the day 1 & 2 article. Keep in mind I didn’t checkout any cemeteries today or yesterday due to arriving at my hotel late yesterday, and waking up later than I usually do today. But I did go down to Hollywood for a few hours to hangout.
