Flying Over Echo Park in Los Angeles
Echo Park Sparkles on a Helicopter Tour of Los Angeles
A private Los Angeles tour, as no surprise to anyone, covers a lot of Hollywood history. This wonderful aerial photograph taken during one of our private Los Angeles helicopter tours shows Echo Park and its beautiful lake. The original movie studios built in Los Angeles prior to World War I were constructed in this area before moving over to Hollywood proper. The first fully-enclosed studio, built by Mack Sennett, is still standing as are some of the ancillary buildings of that great studio. A studio no longer but a destination on many of our ground tours through Los Angeles. Also, not all movie and television stars live in Beverly Hills, Bel Air and Malibu. Many prefer the more urban surroundings, the more varied culture and the proximity to downtown Los Angeles. We are talking Tom Mix and Steve McQueen here. More current names we will keep to ourselves except when we are showing off our great town on a private luxury tour.
