When most people think of star tours Hollywood, they conjure images of guided tours through gated communities with fans hoping to catch a glimpse of their favorite celebs. This is certainly one of the most popular forms of star tours in LA, but it’s not the only one. Disneyland boasts its own version of Star Tours, although you won’t be driving through the pristine gardens of Beverly Hills.
Disneyland’s Star Tours is a Star Wars-themed ride that has been a part of the park for years. Unlike other rides which take you on a track, Star Tours is more like an interactive movie theatre. You sit in theatre style chairs with about 25 other people and watch an immense screen take you through the Star Wars universe. During the ride, the entire platform the seats are connected to moves and gyrates, giving you the impression that you are actually flying through a galaxy far, far away.
The Sunset Strip has been the crux of numerous songs and films, but few people are aware of the actual history of this iconic stretch of Sunset Boulevard. Walking down The Strip it’s impossible to not become inundated by the surfeit of advertisements that are now emblematic of the area. During the 1970s, the Strip became a haven for rock stars and groupies, and its reputation as a reprieve for Hollywood celebrities remains intact.
Not only is there a litany of restaurants, stores and clubs littering the strip, but it also features high-end condominium complexes. Many A-list celebrities also reside in the Hollywood Hills, which are located just above the Sunset Strip. If you want the full Sunset Strip experience, your best bet is to employ some tour vans Los Angeles on your next visit.

There is a line that forms daily on Little Santa Monica Blvd. in Beverly Hills, CA. Sweet cakey goodness like no other is what makes Sprinkles so special. I always gravitate back toward the Red Velvet Cup Cake; but there is simply no way to go wrong.
Do not let the line outside the door intimidate you. There is very little standing room inside the front door and it creates the illusion that the line is longer than it is. I have never waited more than 20 minutes, which is worth every second if you have to. Enjoy them fresh! The perfect guilty pleasure before or after star tours Hollywood. Sprinkles Beverly Hills is located @ 9635 Santa Monica Blvd, Beverly Hills, CA 90210. (310) 274-8765

Yesterday, I was doing what I like to call “Professional Ease Dropping” while on Rodeo drive. Generally speaking, women unlike most men like to share their experiences with the process of “consumer spending” where as men typically like to simply show off the toys they bought. I digress. Two ladies chatting at 2 Rodeo Drive were talking about Pre-owned Luxury HandBags. So there I was 5 feet away Googling it on my Blackberry. Turns out, Fashionphile is the largest pre-owned luxury handbag business in the country. It is a family-owned and operated business, located just off of Rodeo Drive in Beverly Hills, CA.
Founder Davis says, “I started Fashionphile in 1999 as a way to pay off my law school loans. Over time, and with an enormous amount of help from my family, Fashionphile has earned an un-rivaled national reputation for selling only authentic luxury bags. Our mission is to make shopping for pre-owned bags easy, fun, and safe.” The fact that I find this stuff interesting, even though I do not own a hand bag and never will, explains why I often look down at my shirt to see if it reads, “sightseeing tours Los Angeles.” I suppose I just like to know, and share, then know some more. So if handbags stir the urge for you to “consume” go to: 9551 Wilshire Blvd Beverly Hills, California 90210 / or call: 310.279.1136
