Travel Blogs from Los Angeles
Ah, Los Angeles, land of starstruck dreams and Tinseltown magic! A waitress today could be tomorrow's starlet. Celebrity worship, plastic surgery, junkies, endless traffic, earthquakes and artificially enhanced blondes. Well not really what we saw!
This massive city with its surrounds totals 17 million people and is so spread out it's …
... food and we were very full.
Good thing there was space to walk around, like a world-famous boardwalk. The bike path was busy with 2-wheelers and skateboarders altho we never got to join those lucky folks. That was my big wish for the day but we'd spent too much time already and so a stroll down the PED lane was going to have to suffice. IT WAS PACKED!! And the people watching was great!

... part of the tour alone was worth the entrance price.
From there we headed to the 3D "ride" from Despicable Me. Hard to call it a ride as you don't actually move... Again we were totally blown away by the 3D effects. You would swear you were on an incredible roller coaster ride! Off to the Simpsons ride for more of the same.

TravelPod Member ReviewsHollywood Historic Hotel Los Angeles
Throughout our stay, there was plenty of parking - I'm already impressed. Lots a little like the tower of terror - old time pictures, fake plats - my daughter thought it was haunted. The elevator is the smallest one I've ever been in - really cool! 2x2 elevator that barely fit us and 2 bags - something to remember. Our room was good, smelled nice - and was a great place to sleep - what more do you want!
