Movie magic, A-list sightings, and rock ‘n’ roll royalty, what more could you ask for in a California holiday? A trip to Hollywood is an absolute must for celeb seekers and film enthusiasts.

Whether you’re a fan of the classics or today’s blockbusters, be sure to add a holiday to Hollywood to your bucket list.

5 Reasons to Holiday in Hollywood

Movie Industry – Lights, camera, action! Relive the golden age of film by visiting some of the iconic landmarks such as the El Capitan theatre, TCL Chinese Theatre, Dolby Theatre (where the Oscars are held) and tour film studios such as Paramount Pictures and Warner Bros (home to the Friends Central Perk set and the real life Bat Cave!)

Foodie Paradise – Tuck into some of America’s mouth-watering dishes on your holiday to the USA. Hollywood is home to some of the nation’s classic diners and restaurants. Start your day off with an omelette at Petit Trois on Melrose Avenue, or chow down on some chicken and waffles at Roscoe’s. For some good old fashioned American grub get some finger licking good prime ribs at Lawry’s Prime Rib or try a bone marrow pie at Chi Spacca. For a classic chili dog, stop by Pink’s Hot Dogs on North La Brea Ave.

Family Fun –Parents and children can enjoy fun activities on their Hollywood holiday. Spend a day or two at Universal Studios Hollywood to immerse yourselves in the wonderful world of movie magic. Meet some of your favourite stars at Madame Tussauds Hollywood Wax Museum, and get right up close and personal with a Starline Tours of celebrity homes.

Shopping - When in LA, shop like the locals do. Whether you’re on the prowl for some designer goods or looking for something uniquely California, you’ll find all of this plus more. Head on over to the iconic Melrose Avenue, Hollywood’s centre for all things chic and trendy and gaze through the windows while walking down the picturesque street. Music fans can browse through some new and second-hand records at Amoeba Music on Sunset Blvd.

Nightlife – Looking to rub shoulders with some of Hollywood’s elite? Paint Tinseltown red on a night out to some of the area’s exclusive bars and clubs. Tramp Stamp Granny’s is a retro-style piano bar, designed to resemble a 1920s speakeasy. The bar is actually owned by Darren Criss and his wife, Mia Swier. Ricky Martin, Sarah Hyland, Jenna Ushkowitz and Beth Behrs have been spotted sipping a cocktail or two at this venue. The Burgundy Room is Hollywood’s oldest bar, and known to be a hotspot for band members and legendary rock stars. Stop by the top secret 70’s themed bar, Sunset & Vinyl, a hidden Hollywood bar found hidden away on Vine Street. Keep an eye out, or you’ll miss it!
