Hollywood: City of stars
No trip to Los Angeles is complete without a visit to Hollywood, the home of movie studios, many of LA's most popular and historic tourist destinations, and its world-famous namesake boulevard. Whether you're visiting Hollywood for the first time or a lifelong Angeleno this visit is a must. Let´s take a look of some of the most iconic places to visit on the city where the dreams come true.
The famous hillside Hollywood sign is perhaps the most iconic site in California. The original sign was built in the 1923 to advertise a new residential development named Hollywoodland. It was never intended to be a permanent sign and eventually fell into disrepair. Lost its last four letters in 1949 and got a massive makeover in 1978, it was changed to say simply "Hollywood" and soon became a recognized symbol of the city.
Get good views of the sign along Mulholland Highway as it snakes through the Hollywood Hills, as well as from the Griffith Observatory and Lake Hollywood Park. but the best way to see the sign is on a hike or horseback ride through the Hollywood Hills, and the guides know right where to go.
