Los Angeles



Since the early 1900's, Hollywood has woven tales across the silver screen, capturing the minds and hearts of audiences worldwide.
Today, Tinseltown is the star of a movie all her recent renovations and new developments has been invested to bring glamour back to Hollywood. More than cosmetic, the dramatic transformation of Hollywood promises a significantly enhanced vacation experience for the more than ten million visitors who travel to this legendary community every year.

What does Hollywood mean to you? Old movies from the Golden Age of Tinseltown? An action-filled working film set? Or the famed white letters on a hill that loom in the distance? If you're not sure, begin at the Hollywood Entertainment Museum where you can pilot the Starship Enterprise from Star Trek or keep Norm's stool warm from the Cheers set.
If it's time to eat, you may want to "do lunch" at Musso & Franks, still popular with oldtime Hollywood power brokers. And for a taste of Hollywood today, be part of a live audience at a TV taping.

Even after your feet touch every star on the Hollywood Walk Fame, and you've bought an autographed movie poster of your favorite film, you aren't through with Hollywood yet. On the more rustic side, over 53 miles of trails await exploration by foot or by horse in Griffith Park, which also houses the LA Zoo.

If you fancy yourself young and hip, shop for an ultra-trendy outfit on Melrose before going club-hopping at places like the retro-chic Dresden Club, featured in the film "Swingers." For a family adventure, tour Universal Studios Hollywood and get wet on Jurassic Park The Ride.
And if you're in the mood for romance, nothing compares to a gourmet picnic together with a symphony, under a sea of stars at the Hollywood Bowl.

Some of the more famous sites on Hollywood Boulevard include:
Dolby Theatre (where the Oscar's are being awarded...)
Hollywood Wax Museum
Sid Grauman's Chinese Theatre
Ripley's Believe It or Not! Museum
Guinness World of Records Museum
Pantages Theatre
El Capitan Theatre
