If you have not yet had your fill of stardom, take a tour of the Dolby Theatre which hosts the Academy Awards every year. Situated at the heart of Hollywood, the Highland Centre is a great place to peruse the many shops and grab a bite to eat. With the numerous restaurants, bars and even nightclubs there is something here to entertain visitors around the clock. The newly opened Madame Tussauds and the Hollywood History Museum can be found just around the corner.

Los Angeles offers one of the best shopping experiences in the world; this comes as no surprise given the star studded nature of the city.

LA is the United States West Coast’s must see for fashion junkies and film buffs alike. Boasting areas such as Rodeo Drive in Beverley Hills to The LA Fashion District in Downtown, this city sets the trend for the entire region.

Due to its ideal location in the southern California, LA is a great place to visit for families and sun seekers. The numerous golden beaches are just as iconic as the Hollywood sign itself and are adored by both locals and visitors.
