Yes, LA cemeteries can be great places to take visiting relatives and friends. Some of the cemetery staff, guards and gardeners alike, will even approach you and ask if you're looking for a specific grave, and they will gladly direct you. Only Glendale Forest Lawn actively discourages giving visitors directions to celebrity graves, and even prohibits taking pictures inside the mausoleums, but of course people sneak taking pictures anyway. I have yet to see it, but I would like to see Michael Jackson's grave...
