But onto the main event! We recommend the following 5 sites for first time ghost hunters.

  1. The Hollywood Sign –   This iconic sign is where many crushed dreams have ended by suicide. None more notable than Broadway stage actress Peg Entwistle who jumped off the ‘H” sign to her death. Her spirit is supposed to haunt the area around the sign till this day, and perhaps even smell her perfume.
  2. Pasadena “Suicide Bridge” – A bridge with more than a  hundred suicides officially, many speculate that the true number is even higher. This is an ideal spot for hauntings because some of the most distressed spirits are said to have tried to move on to the next world here, and failed.
  3. Hollywood Roosevelt – Marilyn Monroe and actor Montgomery Clift are said to haunt this hotel to this day. Many guests have heard noises on the 9th floor hallway, and frequently report lights being turned on by themselves in bathrooms. A bunch of vain spirits getting ready for their close up, if you ask us. (Also look up Hotel Cecil, the inspiration for American Horror Story: Hotel)
  4. Queen Mary – During Halloween, they definitely play up the fact that the Queen Mary is haunted, and while it may seem like a cash grab, there have been hundreds of sighting throughout the magnificent vessels stint as a floating hotel.
  5.  Cobb Estate/Forest –  This is a very popular spot amongst amateur ghost hunters, and for good reason. Its a chilling experience at night, even without any haunting and is easy to get in and out of.

So get your ghost hunting camcorder out, round up your friends and head out into the city of dreams for an adventure you will never forget.
