Dearly Departed Tours: See Hollywood From A Morbid Perspective
Celebrity grave purchases are a big business, and one that's even more in the making since many of the biggest celebrities in pop culture today. Following the death of Michael Jackson, I talked about businesses getting involved in the sales of plots near celebrity grave sites but there are also businesses that cater to those just looking to gawk, rather than make an investment in their eternity.
If you feel like a little bit of morbid gawking this Halloween, then take a celebrity grave site tour around Hollywood and the Los Angeles area. Businesses like Dearly Departed Tours take advantage of the fact that often as a society, we appreciate people more after they're gone; taking the curious on tours of celebrity grave sites and other locations around Los Angeles where famous deaths and scandals took place. To up the ante on the morbid factor, they cart people around on the tour in the "Tomb Buggy" which pays a resemblance to an ambulance.
Death is a big business whether you agree with it or not, and celebrity grave tours put a light-hearted spin on a normally morbid topic. What more could you want if you're looking for a last minute Halloween activity?
