A guide to Marilyn Monroe sites

The 50th anniversary of Marilyn Monroe’s death is on Aug. 5. If you want to mark the date by doing something other than watching one of her movies, Lonely Planet offers this guide to key sites, from her crypt in the Westwood area of Los Angeles to the spot in New York where the above photo was shot, to the dry lake bed in Nevada where an important scene from The Misfits was filmed.
