Since 1920, Hollywood is synonymous with movie-making and celebrity lifestyle.  Once you’ve visited Hollywood, you’ll know why it fully lives up to its Tinseltown nickname.  To immerse yourself in its film culture, start at Hollywood Boulevard to view the Walk of Fame, go to the numerous museums dedicated to the entertainment industry and take a Movie Stars Home Tour to see where Tom Cruise, Jennifer Anniston and many more live.

If you want the ultimate Hollywood movie experience, go behind-the-scenes on the legendary Universal Studios Hollywood Studio Tour to explore where Hollywood movies are made. Next explore Universal Studios Theme Park for exciting movie-themed rides and attractions that give you an insider view to some of the world’s most popular movies.

There is much to see and do for both fashionistas and families alike at the Hollywood & Highland entertainment center. Take photos with comic book characters with the kids or shop for the latest fashions at Louis Vuitton, Coach or Bebe. The newest Cirque du Soleil show, IRIS, is a must-see show of spellbinding human feats and vaudevillian comedy at the Kodak Theatre, which also hosts the Academy Awards.

If you’re looking for a bizarre wig or 10-inch heeled pink boots, stroll the shops on Hollywood Boulevard near Highland Avenue and on Sunset Boulevard between Vine Street and Cahuenga Boulevard, for some funky shopping opportunities. For the music buff, Amoeba Music is the world’s largest independent music store carrying rare and current LPs and CDs.

In the evening, Hollywood is certainly the sizzling center of Los Angeles nightlife.  Red carpet movie premieres, lines of club goers waiting to check out the hottest DJ and flashes of a paparazzi’s camera catching a celebrity leaving one of Hollywood’s trendy restaurants are scenarios one can catch on any given night in Hollywood. For a slice of Hollywood’s celebrity bar scene, check out Drai’s Hollywood, the multilevel rooftop bar at the W Hollywood Hotel or the Hollywood Roosevelt’s poolside bar Tropicana.

When you’ve had your fill of movie stars, Los Angeles’ landmark Griffith Observatory with views of the entire city offers an incredible opportunity for authentic stargazing.
