A recent comic strip, Brevity, by artists Guy Endore-Kaiser and Rodd Perry, makes good fun of Richard Simmons and his general “outfit” selection. However, all of us at Elite Adventure Tours know Richard from the times we have seem him outside his home which we often pass on our private luxury tours of Hollywood and Beverly Hills. He is never too busy to say hello to our guests and make them smile with his Richard-ness. He is a very loveable man to even the most macho guest we have with us. Richard happily cooperated with us in the making of a little video for our Elite Adventure Tours YouTube Channel that is funny and energetic and makes a good reason to stop by his exercise salon in Beverly Hills for a good workout.
This is the 20th year that the Fashion Institute of Design and Manufacturing (FIDM) in downtown Los Angeles has exhibited costumes from films celebrated in the past year for their magnificent clothing designs. This year there are more than 100 costumes from more than 20 films released in 2011. Wouldn’t it be a great idea to include in your tour of Hollywood and Los Angeles filmmaking a visit downtown to this gallery to see this incredible exhibition?

Joining his band mates on the sidewalk in front of their old U.S. recording studio haunt, Capitol Records, Sir Paul McCartney gets the 2,460th star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. Ringo, under the weather that Thursday, was unable to attend, however Neil Young made some poignant observations about the still influential singer/songwriter/musician and the large audience in attendance was thrilled. Why not visit the Beatles’ stars during a Hollywood Celebrity tour to really feel connected to the people whose songs you hum every day.
Since 1976 February has been recognized as Black History Month. What better way to focus a special tour of Los Angeles than by visiting locations and sites important in southern California history. From art galleries and public sculptures to music venues and celebrity homes to more haunting locations Los Angeles is as important to the African American experience as any U.S. city. A great place to begin is the California African American Museum in Exposition Park. Through art the history is illuminated for all visitors.

No matter what tour of Los Angeles you take you will never explore this amazing location. Los Angelenos, even Disney aficionados, have no idea of this lovely treasure safely secured on the northern edge of Griffith Park. Originally constructed in the back of Walt Disney’s Holmby Hills home so he could monitor the movement of trains on his 2,600 foot miniature railroad, the barn was saved by his daughter after Walt’s death and moved to Griffith Park. Managed by the Carolwood Pacific Historical Society the barn is open free to public the third Sunday of each month. Take your next opportunity to visit the birthplace of Imagineering at Walt’s Barn (carolwood.com).
