Hollywood undoubtedly conjures up images of movie
stars and high-end lifestyles, and to this day,
tourists flock here from around the world to see the
iconic Hollywood Walk of Fame, Chinese Theatre and to
catch a glimpse of the famed Hollywood sign up close.
Celebrity impersonators and crowds give these areas
the feeling of an amusement park while many clubs and
hotels fill up around the weekends for late-night

Hi Guys, do you visit the Forest Lawn cemetery as I was hoping to visit some of the graves & also do you visit Viper Room, Whisky a go go or Rainbow bar & grill? I'm looking to do a bit of Rock 'n' Roll pilgrimage on my trip to LA & only have 2 days before we leave on the rest of our tour. Thank you.

I called the business at their local number (323) 466-3696 and spoke with Brian. He said they recently changed numbers because they changed their ticketing company, and apparently not everything has been updated yet... More
