LA with the Top Down!

Oct 11, 2006  
4.0 of 5 stars based on 2 votes

A weekend of Must see's in Los Angeles

  • Category: Perfect weekend
  • 1. NBC Burbank Studio Tour

    Warner Brothers Studio Tour - Take the VIP tour. Well worth the price, a lot to see and very enjoyable. Easy to get to if you've rented a car. Website is very informative. Helpful to get your tickets online before you go.

  • 2. Hollywood Walk of Fame

    You must see the Hollywood Walk of Fame. It's quite extensive, but not necessairly in the best parts of town. You'll find yourself looking down and reading the stars as you walk and missing the rest of the sites. If you're driving, park near the Hollywood and Highlands complex.

  • 3. Hollywood & Highland Center

    At the corner of Hollywood Blvd. and Highland Ave. is a great complex of restaurants and shops. It encompasses the Kodak Theatre, venue for the Academy Awards, and is the best vantage point to take a picture of the Hollywood sign. (Fourth floor) On the exterior, the Walk of Fame surrounds the perimeter, anchored by landmark Grauman's Chinese Theater, and it's in good company among attractions such as the Hollywood Wax Museum, the El Capitan and Ripley's Odditorium.

  • 4. Grauman's Chinese Theatre

    Connected to the Hollywood & Highlands complex is Grauman's Chinese Theater.
    Legendary Stars have place their hands, feet and and other assorted parts into cement. You can't miss this famed Hollywood attraction.

  • 5. Starline Tours

    While at Grauman's Theater, you can book with Starline tours to see homes of the stars. We had a great driver named Tony who sounded like Jack Nicholson. We took a stretch SUV Limo through exclusive neighborhoods and were in awe as Tony pointed out a plethora of sites and information. We even got to get out and take a walk on Rodeo Drive

  • 6. Omni Los Angeles at California Plaza

    A great place to lay your head while you visit the City of Angels. Nice rooms, a great breakfast, and reasonable

  • 7. The Original Pantry

    Established in 1924, they never close! The Pantry was recommended to us more than once, so we had to try it. I always say you should go where the non-tourists go to get a true slice of the area. This place did not dissapoint. You will wait a little while to get in, but it's worth the wait. The menu's are on the walls, and your coffee is served to you before you even ask for it! Don't miss the sourdough toast. We went for breakfast, large portions - great prices - Yummy!

  • 8. Robertson Boulevard

    The newest must shop and be seen street. Don't miss Kitson, a favorite stop for stars. $300.00 T's, $900.00 bags, you'll find them here, along with the women who can afford them. A great people watching perch.

  • 9. Pink's Hot Dogs

    Don't miss Pink's! An LA Treasure - 65 years in the same location. It is not unusual to see a Rolls Royce pull up to Pink's (the chili dog ordered will be for the occupant, not the chauffeur!). Movie stars, well-known dignitaries, struggling musicians, businessmen, housewives, school children... all have savored Pink's Famous Chili Dogs. Well worth the 1/2 hour + wait in line.

  • 10. Mulholland Drive

    We drove our rented Mustang convertible up a twisting wooded two-lane road overlooking Los Angeles. It was just about sunset, and there were scenic overlook spots to pull over and take in the view. What was more breathtaking, the city view, or the amazing mansions with a view of the city?

  • 11. Segway Los Angeles

    If you are looking for an extra special facet to your weekend, go and rent a Segway. They are easy and so much fun to ride! We rented Segway's in Santa Monica, and rode down to Venice beach. We did the 2 hour rental, and had the best time!! Definately check them out.
