Full description
Experience the best travel stories for yourself! Join a local expert and uncover hidden gems on this Lonely Planet Experience.

Start your Hollywood Boulevard adventure with a stroll down the iconic Walk of Fame and learn how one of the most famous boulevards in the world came to be. From there, admire the Hollywood sign from a lookout bridge while hearing about the history of Hollywood, why filmmakers chose to set up shop in a small farming and ranching community, and how they managed to turn it into one of the most famous places in the world.

Next up is a visit to the Dolby Theatre, home of the Oscars. Make your way up the red-carpet staircase emblazoned with symbolic mosaic tiles, on the same route the stars have walked since 2002. From there, head to the TLC Chinese Theater (formerly Grauman's Chinese Theater). While admiring this quirky building, hear the story of Sid Grauman, the theater's founder, and check out the cement handprints, footprints, and signatures of more than 200 of the most influential people in Hollywood's history.

Make a stop at the historic Roosevelt Hotel, home to the first Oscars ceremony as well as a galaxy of stars who would stay at the hotel while they were in town. As you explore the hotel, hear stories of famous guests and tales of ghosts that stalk the hallways. Your tour ends at "The Four Ladies of Hollywood," an art deco-style sculpture that represents the diversity of women in Hollywood. Before you go, don’t forget to ask your local guide for more tips on what else to see and do in Los Angeles. There are lots more ways to experience old Hollywood, so be sure to ask for recommendations.
