If you have not heard of the website Pinterest yet, you will. This website focuses on photography and images. Naturally we enjoy posting our blog photographs there since we consider it so important to capture fine images of our private Los Angeles tour guests on their tours with us.
This is our 2nd most popular pin on our Los Angeles Seen with Elite Adventure Tours board on Pinterest. The staircase runs between two hillside streets in Hollywoodland, just beyond the stone gates marking the entrance on Beachwood Drive. Los Angeles has many such staircases, some made quite famous in movies and television shows, but we drive by this particular spot on our way to see the Hollywood Sign on almost all of our private Hollywood tours. If we are in the midst of a fitness tour or even have energetic guests, and if the exercise crowd isn’t hogging the steps, we like to stop and “take a lap” just for fun and photos.
We will post our Number 1 Pinterest pin soon. If you visit our Pinterest board you will be able to find out before then.
Many cities with vertical topography have public staircases to navigate the hills. Those staircases these days are also used as a source of stair training exercise. Not all of them are as pretty as this particular stone staircase built in the original Hollywoodland development up Beachwood Canyon Drive and just past the stone pillars marking the entrance to the historic neighborhood. It is rare to capture a photograph when there aren’t the usual lines of healthy joggers scooting up and down the steps. We often stop to take our more nimble private luxury tour guests here in Los Angeles to the top of the stairs for photographs. It is a good build up for the next thing they see — the Hollywood Sign itself which remains from the original marketing tool for the real estate development.
