Jeanette MacDonald Nelson Eddy Homes Driving Tour, June 26, 2010

This post is for Jeanette MacDonald and Nelson Eddy fans that are joining us on Saturday, June 26, for our driving  tour. If you need more info about our weekend events, check out this link.

Please make sure at least one person in your car downloads these attachments/directions  so you have them at hand during the driving tour. You might also want to print this page and the three maps shown below.

3. Directions back from Isabel’s beach house to her home in Westwood (which is 5 minutes away from Jeanette’s Wilshire Comstock, the final stop on our tour). Directions: Porto Marina back to Wilkins

NOTE: Some people want to cram in as much sightseeing as they can, particularly visiting the graves of Nelson and Jeanette. The best way to do it is to visit Nelson on Saturday prior to the driving tour (as you’ll only be a few miles away from our starting point) and to visit Jeanette Sunday morning before the luncheon at Sportsmans Lodge. On Sunday as you drive back from Forest Lawn, you can make a quick stop en route to Sportsmans on S. Mariposa St., where Nelson boarded his horse and had a small hideaway home for himself and Jeanette.  If you want to see the graves plus have a mini-Hollywood tour as well, please download the following items:

Please note that I have not included directions to the cemeteries. This is because I don’t know where you will be driving from.  So, below are general maps showing where they are. You can click on them to see larger photos.
