Elvis was one of the most successful dabblers of all time. His music ran the gamut of musical genres – from gospel to the blues, country to straight-up rock ‘n’ roll – and he conquered them all. In the 1950s and ’60s especially, you could barely change the radio station without running across a classic from the King. Elvis welcomed a challenge, eventually branching out into acting work in Hollywood movies.
Even in death, the King’s image in omnipresent. You can find his mug on stamps, velvet pictures, and yes, even mugs. Even during tours of Los Angeles, you’re bound to see remnants of the King, especially his star on the Walk of Fame. Elvis posters are a particularly celebrated piece of memorabilia, as they celebrate the pride of Tupelo, Mississippi in a number of striking poses. These posters capture Elvis in his glory days as a sex symbol and his more mature years as a successful lounge singer.
When I visited Europe in college, I was completely prepared for the culture shock that ensued. After all, it’s not fair to expect the residents of a foreign country to speak my language and conform to my cultural expectations. However, I was taken unawares when my husband and I moved to California. It really is true what they say: the West Coast of America is unlike any other place within our borders.
While it took some getting used to at first, we soon fell into the trappings of the L.A. lifestyle. During our first weeks in the city, we took a couple of LA guided tours to get acquainted with our surroundings. Since we’ve settled in, we’ve explored acupuncture, started doing yoga and generally adopted a healthier way of living. I still haven’t fully embraced the idea of spending so much time in bumper-to-bumper traffic on the way to work each morning, but you’ve got to take the good with the bad.
When it comes to traveling abroad or in an area of the country where you’ve never been, it can be difficult to distinguish the hotspots and the duds. Traveler’s manuals will list various locations you can visit, but often won’t tell you if it’s worth it. Often the best way to visit fun or interesting locations is through travel tours. In civilized places a travel tour will take you to all the best historic locations, shops, and eateries, while if you’re traveling somewhere like South America or Africa, you can view the flora and fauna from a safe distance with an experienced professional.
People will often book travel tours with their airfare and accommodations; it’s a smart decision to plan your entertainment ahead of time so you don’t wind up bored! Before my last trip to Southern California, I booked my family and myself a couple of tours of Los Angeles to ensure that we didn’t miss out on any of the prime sightseeing opportunities.

The Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum is a large outdoor sports stadium in the University Parkneighborhood of Los Angeles, California at Exposition Park that is home to the University of Southern California Trojans football team. It is located next to the Los Angeles Memorial Sports Arenaadjacent to the campus of the University of Southern California (USC). The stadium is jointly owned by the State of California, Los Angeles County, and the City of Los Angeles; it is currently managed by the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum Commission, which has board members drawn from the three ownership interests.
The Coliseum has the distinction of being the only stadium in the world to host the Olympic Gamestwice, in 1932 and 1984. It is also the only Olympic stadium to have also hosted Super Bowls andWorld Series. Typically this is not a sight that is seen or requested on Los Angeles guided tours, yet it was declared a National Historic Landmark on July 27, 1984, the day before the opening ceremony of the 1984 Summer Olympics.
