Tinsel Town of Cinematic Glamour

Museums and Theatres in Hollywood
The Entertainment Museum shows how TV shows and movies are made and you can sit in Captain Kirk´s chair or actually walk through the set of Cheers and sit on Norm´s seat. Nearby, on Hollywood Boulevard, is the Grauman´s Chinese Theatre. It opened in 1927 and in 1968 it got the historic-cultural landmark status. To build the Theatre, Grauman needed permission from the government to import the stone Heaven Dogs, the original temple bells and the pagodas from China.

The Hollywood Forever Cemetery
Paris has Père Lachaise, Los Angeles has the Hollywood Forever Cemetery. It’s known as the resting place of Hollywood’s immortals and became a place where pilgrims visit the tombstones of their idols. It’s not an ordinary graveyard with the palm trees, the glamorous mausoleums and even video screens which show life stories. In summer you can occasionally have a picnic dinner at the graveyard and watch a movie at the same time.

Hollywood’s Outdoors
In LA nobody seems to walk, but the mountains around LA are great for hiking. From the trails along the Santa Monica Mountain you can overlook the Pacific Ocean and the forested Angeles Crest. Or watch some celebrities walking their dogs off-leashed just uphill into Hollywood’s Runyon Canyon.

Daytrips form Hollywood
In Venice Beach you’ll find outdoor cafés, street performers and lots of excitement and entertainment. You can rent a bike to ride the cycle path to Redondo Beach, go to Santa Monica’s pier and take a break at Zuma Beach along the Pacific Coast Highway. You can scuba dive at Catalina Island in Anaheim or explore the wild nature of the island by fishing, hiking, camping and kayaking.

Disneyland
Another cultural stop is LA is the LA County Museum of Art and the Museum of Contemporary Art. Don’t miss the Getty Center if you love great art, beautiful gardens, amazing architecture and stunning views. If you really want to do the whole of Los Angeles you complete your trip with a visit to Disneyland.
