Our Private Tour Knows Where They Are
There is as much looking down as looking up when our private Los Angeles tour arrives in Hollywood. We are, of course, talking about the Hollywood Walk of Fame, the 2,600+ stars embedded in the sidewalk along 17 blocks of Hollywood Boulevard and Vine Street. Talk about a stroll down memory lane….wow, this is it! We know where a good number of the stars are so if a guest mentions a beloved favorite we can get them to the star for a photograph and some adoration. If we do not know the exact location then we can quickly find it (there’s an app for that). At the corner of Hollywood Boulevard and Highland Avenue (above) we are also at the Hollywood & Highland Center. So as not to forget where we are the city has marked the sidewalk in brilliant gold letters. For other looking at our feet activities here in Hollywood there is the Road to Hollywood, an art installation through the Hollywood & Highland Center leading from the Walk of Fame to the shrink’s couch with a view of the Hollywood Sign. Do not forget Grauman’s Chinese Theater courtyard filled with hand and footprints of movie stars throughout history. The nearby Rockwalk at the Guitar Center has the handprints of famous musicians. Thankfully, because of the all the looking down the sidewalks are always kept clear and clean. That’s a noteworthy accomplishment in a major American city.
