Hello Hollywood / West Hollywood
No trip to LA would be complete without stopping for a moment to gaze up at those famous, pearly-white letters: HOLLYWOOD. But never mind stopping for moment, how about using Tinseltown as a base from which to set off and discover all of LA? You can get up early to stroll along the Walk of Fame and find the perfect spot to snap an unimpeded shot of the sign, before heading over to West Hollywood late afternoon to check out the restaurants, bars, and clubs on the Sunset Strip.
Yet for all the glitz, glamor, and excitable crowds on Hollywood Boulevard, this is a neighborhood for which the rewards of scratching beneath the surface are only all too apparent. Local farmers’ markets, restaurants where you can hear yourself talk, intimate art galleries and music venues – you might visit to experience the magic of the movies, but that’s only the tip of the iceberg.
