When you think of Hollywood you immediately think of glitz, glamour and movie legends. So here’s my brief run-down of where to see the stars (kinda!).
1. Book a Movie Star Homes Tour
We took a tour with Starline who depart from Hollywood Boulevard among other locations. We were taken up into the Hollywood Hills where we saw the houses and former houses of celebrities such as Jennifer Aniston, Katy Perry, Justin Timberlake and Michael Jackson.
We got to see the Hollywood sign (albeit from a distance) and also took a trip down Rodeo Drive. We were told that Rodeo Drive would be the best place to spot a celeb but sadly our luck was out that day. If we had had more time in L.A. then I’m sure we would have gone back for a spot of window shopping and playing paparazzi.
2. Get up close and personal at Madame Tussauds
Ok so I cheated slightly with this one, but you can always take a selfie with Will Smith’s wax form or something and pretend to all your friends back home that you just so happened to bump into him as you were hanging out in some hip L.A. club or loitering outside the Chateau Marmont or wherever.
We actually got free tickets to Madame Tussauds as part of a deal with the movie stars homes tour so it was a win for us. Plus it’s fun doing silly poses with the wax works!
3. Check out the Walk of Fame
So it’s unlikely that you’re going to see Hugh Jackman just casually strolling down the Walk of Fame but you might very well see a Wolverine looky-likey who will have his picture taken with you for a couple of dollars. You’ll be guaranteed to spot a Marilyn Monroe and at least 3 Spidermans (or should that be Spidermen?) too.
There are of course literal stars on the pavements here so don’t forget to take some snaps of your favourites. You can even find out whose star is where beforehand right here.
So there you have my tongue in cheek list of top 3 places to see the stars in Hollywood –
you’re welcome I’m sorry! Have you ever been to L.A? And did you bump into anyone famous?
If you loved it, then pin it!
