The city of Los Angeles features prominently in the film that came so close to winning an Oscar for Best Picture. In La La Land, famous scenes of the freeways make a dazzling appearance, as well as many other landmarks in the city. For those who find themselves yearning for a trip to Los Angeles, there is so much to do in the “City of Stars”.
First, many people like to start with the traditional haunts of the movie stars. Those who love the glitz and glamour of Old Hollywood will want to check out all of the celebrities’ stars on Hollywood Boulevard. Grauman’s Chinese Theatre is where the footprints and handprints of the famous are displayed, making it easy to see how one’s hands measure up to stars like Marilyn Monroe. Charlie Chaplin fans can take a walk down to his favorite restaurant, which is called Musso & Frank’s and is still in business and serving essentially the same menu today.
For those who appreciate a good view, there’s nothing quite like the PCH (Pacific Coast Highway). Hop onto this majestic road and catch a glimpse of the dazzling, pristine Pacific Ocean right beside you. While you’re at it, you can stop at some of the most famous Malibu haunts of all time. Duke’s and Moonshadows are particularly well-known restaurants. If you stay on the PCH long enough, you can drive north all the way to Santa Barbara. This sleepy beach town is known for its picturesque views and stunning beauty.
Although many travelers fly into LAX when they choose to visit Los Angeles, the Burbank Airport is another excellent option. Central to most landmarks in the city—and without the massive amounts of traffic—it is also known as the Bob Hope Airport. Regardless of where you land, you’re bound to love La La Land.
