Travel Tips from people who've been to Hollywood
Worked there for a couple years (at another motorcycle shop). I've had run ins with: Lawerence Fishburn, Kramer (from Seinfeld), Harrison Ford (previous customer from another shop), Danny Bonaducci, Dante (filipino kid from Biker Boyz), Fabio ('I can't believe its not butter')..... Great experience but tired of the plasticity, superficial stuff. Just Hollywood I guess..... there also is: walk of fame, Mann's Gromman Chinese Theater, Kodak Center, Formosa Cafe(Friday Night hang out), Miss Kitty's, Whisky Pete's, The Roxy, The Ivar, Velvet Margarita, Beauty Bar, The Cat and the Fiddle, The Vanguard, Circus, The Arena, and a slurry of clubs. At the intersection of Hollywood and Highland you can also find: Ripley's Believe It or Not, Wax Museum. Subway station on every street, and buses, but shut down at 2:00am. There are other trendy spots like Birds on Franklin ave.
So far, we have been to Universal Studios both times when we were in Los Angeles. I specifically liked the studio tours, but also the different rides and the shows with special effects are worth doing. If you only have a slight interest in movies and how they are made, I can recommend you to spend at least half a day at Universal Studios!
Ok, Hollywood is not what you think it is. It's nice on the surface, but lurking closely beneath is a cesspool of crime drugs and violence. The sites are cool and the Walk of fame is entertaining and I have had a lot of fun on the sunset strip, but it's not called Hollyweird for no reason.
