I love Sunset Strip. There's all the history of the 70s music scene when LA was arguably the music capital of the world; the venues, the drinking joints, the amazing houses perched in the hills above silently observing all that happens on the Strip below. I once walked straight past Ozzy Osbourne at 6am after waking up early with jet lag and spotted Gewn Stefani driving down the road in her convertible. The views of downtown LA are stunning and the city fans out below so you feel like you're walking on a ridge between the city and the hills. It's been gentrified over the years but at least that means there are great sushi restaurants alongside the dingy clubs and bars that make Sunset what it is. The real stars of the show, although they're often overlooked, are the giant billboards that soar over the strip. You won't see anything else like it. If I only had time to visit one place in LA this would be it. Way better than Hollywood, which is like London's Leicester Square on steroids.
