A late 19th Century cemetery full of spectacular angels, over-the-top mausoleums, just south of San Francisco - and the last resting place of famous, infamous and just plain interesting San Franciscans. Guided walking tours given every third Saturday of the month.
The last resting place of many famous stars and film makers hosts the Los Angeles Day of the Dead celebration (late October). Otherwise, you can take a regular tour a couple of times a month.
On Halloween night, the Long Beach Historical Society hosts tours of the city's oldest resting grounds, where (as they say) "every plot has a story," retold by costumed docents.
This place is so interesting (it dates from the 1860s) and popular that they offer tours twice a month, all year round.
Sacramento mayors, California governors, Civil War Veterans and victims of the 1850 Cholera Epidemic are only a few of the folks interred here and they offer plenty of guided tours so you can learn all about them. In late October, their Lantern Tours raise lots of money, selling out well in advance.
This historic cemetery dates back to 1834 and it was active until 1939. Now it's part of the Orange County Parks system and they give tours on a regular basis.
