On your next trip to California, take the time to get a closer look at what’s going on in Hollywood, the center of the motion picture industry and everything related to entertainment. There are many ways of getting there, but once you have reached your destination there are few companies that give you as thorough of an introduction to the city as Hollywood Tours does.
The Hollywood Fantastic Bus Tour from Orange County, a favorite among travelers, takes you out for a full day of sightseeing in Los Angeles, Beverly Hills, Hollywood, and Rodeo Drive. There is so much to see in this area, including Paramount Studios, China Town, and the original Spanish settlement on Olvera Street. You will even get to take a picture of the world famous Hollywood Sign – seen widely across pop culture mediums – from the best location in the city.
Other buildings you will see on your tour include the Staples Center, Walt Disney Music Center, and the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum, a large outdoor sports stadium at Exposition Park where the USC Trojans football team plays. You will see it all by luxury coach and learn about the early Californios – Spanish speaking inhabitants of Alta, California in the 18th and 19th centuries before the United States invasion that precipitated the Mexican-American War – and the gold rush 49ers. You will have plenty of time to shop at Farmer’s Market, which is a huge outdoor market selling clothing, produce, antiques, and gifts. This is where you will break for lunch on your own.
Throughout the duration of the tour, you will see many of the world-famous sights that draw large crowds year-round. You will get to check out the footprints and handprints of the stars at Grauman’s Chinese Theatre, window shop on Rodeo Drive for the latest fashions, and cruise through Melrose Avenue and Sunset Boulevard. You will also get to see some elaborate Beverly Hills mansions.
For those who love sightseeing and even those who don’t, this tour is a must-see, taking you into the world of the rich and famous and showing you the ropes in case you decide to join the ranks. Check out even more fun tours of Tinseltown at www.hollywoodtours.us.
