The great thing about Hollywood is that there is always something to see and do. Sometimes, all that Hollywood has to offer might seem overwhelming and you might not know where to start. To make it easier, here are four must-see Hollywood attractions that you should visit during your stay.
The first on the list is the Hollywood Sign. A visit to Hollywood would not be complete without a good look at the sign. Lucky for you, it is actually quite easy to see. The easiest way to the see the sign is at the Hollywood and Highland Center – a shopping and entertainment area located at Hollywood Blvd and Highland Avenue. Walking around this shopping area you will be able to see the sign to the north. If you want a closer look, head out to the Griffith Observatory; located on Mount Hollywood, as there are viewing areas that offer an up close look at the iconic sign.
Number two on the list is the Hollywood Walk of Fame. You’ve heard of celebrities having their own stars on the sidewalk and now is your chance to see it! See classic Hollywood stars such as Marilyn Monroe, Frank Sinatra, Lucille Ball, Elvis Presley, Humphrey Bogart, and Grace Kelly. There are also more recent stars such as Ellen DeGeneres, Reese Witherspoon, and Neil Patrick Harris!
