You know you’ve arrived in Santa Monica, California when you see the iconic Ferris wheel of the Santa Monica Pier jutting into the inviting waters of the Pacific Ocean. Set at Santa Monica’s westernmost point, the Santa Monica Pier is a staple of this picturesque seaside community. Packed with family-friendly activities, restaurants and shops, it also has stunning views and over a century’s worth of history. Constructed in 1909, the storied Santa Monica Pier was the first concrete pier on the West Coast. It quickly gained a reputation among locals as the best fishing spot in Santa Monica. The Looff Hippodrome, now a National Historic Landmark and home to a beautiful carousel, opened in 1916, followed by the iconic carousel in 1939. In 1941, the iconic Santa Monica Yacht Harbor neon sign was unveiled; this is the place for the perfect selfie!

The grand opening of Grauman’s Chinese Theatre in Hollywood on May 18, 1927, was the most spectacular theatre opening in motion picture history. Thousands of people lined Hollywood Boulevard and a riot broke out as fans tried to catch a glimpse of the movie stars and other celebrities as they arrived for the opening. The film being premiered that night was Cecil B. DeMille’s “The King of Kings,” which was preceded by “Glories of the Scriptures,” a live prologue devised by master showman Sid Grauman. A Wurlitzer organ and 65-piece orchestra provided music for the prologue. The theatre opened to the public the following day, May 19, 1927. Previously, Grauman built the Million Dollar Theatre in downtown Los Angeles and the lavish Egyptian Theatre a few blocks from the Chinese, but he wanted to build his dream theatre. Real estate mogul C.E. Toberman helped him secure a long-term lease on a piece of property on the boulevard and Grauman developed the plans for the theatre with architect Raymond Kennedy. Norma Talmadge turned the first spade full of dirt in January 1926 and beautiful Chinese actress Anna May Wong drove the first rivet in the steel girders. The build cost $2,000,000, and eighteen months later the Chinese Theatre opened. Authorization had to be obtained from the U.S. government to import temple bells, pagodas, stone Heaven Dogs and other artifacts from China. Poet and film director Moon Quon came from China, and under his supervision Chinese artisans created many pieces of statuary in the work area that eventually became the Forecourt of the Stars. Most of these pieces still decorate the ornate interior of the theatre today. Protected by its 40-foot high curved walls and copper-topped turrets, the theatre’s legendary forecourt serves as an oasis to the stars of yesterday and today. Ten-foot tall lotus-shaped fountains and intricate artistry flank the footprints of some of Hollywood’s most elite and welcome its visitors into the magical world of fantasy and whim known as Hollywood. The theatre rises 90-feet high and two gigantic coral red columns topped by wrought iron masks hold aloft the bronze roof. Between the columns is a 30-foot high dragon carved from stone and guarding the theatre’s entrance are the two original giant Heaven Dogs brought from China. In 1973, it was renamed Mann's Chinese Theatre. That lasted until 2001. It then reverted to Graumann's. On January 11, 2013, the world famous Chinese Theatre announced that they would be teaming up with one of China’s biggest electronics manufacturers, TCL, aka “The Creative Life” in a 10-year naming rights partnership. With this partnership, TCL and the Chinese Theatres have plans to preserve a legacy that was created more than 85 years ago and will continue for many years to come. The legacy of the Chinese Theatre is to be a leader in exhibition, to be at the forefront of new technology, to push the envelope, and to offer patrons the best experience possible. The best way to honor its legacy is to bring the theatre into the future and to continue to evolve with the times. The Chinese Theatre will have the ability to remain current and continue to be the best in the world with their newly formed partnership with TCL.

Griffith Observatory is an icon of Los Angeles, a national leader in public astronomy, a beloved civic gathering place, and one of southern California's most popular attractions. The Observatory is located on the southern slope of Mount Hollywood in Griffith Park, just above the Los Feliz neighborhood. It is 1,134 feet above sea level and is visible from many parts of the Los Angeles basin. The Observatory is the best vantage point for observing the world-famous Hollywood Sign. Griffith Observatory is a free-admission, public facility owned and operated by the City of Los Angeles Department of Recreation and Parks in the middle of an urban metropolis of ten million people. The Observatory is one of the most popular informal education facilities in the United States and the most-visited public observatory in the world (with 1.5 million visitors a year). Griffith Observatory is a unique hybrid of public observatory, planetarium, and exhibition space. It was constructed with funds from the bequest of Griffith J. Griffith (who donated the land for Griffith Park in 1896), who specified the purpose, features, and location of the building in his 1919 will. Upon completion of construction in 1935, the Observatory was given to the City of Los Angeles with the provision that it be operated for the public with no admission charge. When it opened in 1935, it was one of the first institutions in the U.S. dedicated to public science and possessed the third planetarium in the U.S. Since opening, the Observatory has welcomed over 81 million visitors. Open late nearly every evening, Griffith Observatory's audience is “the general public,” and it is one of the rare places where you will see people from every part of the region and from all parts of the world. Fulfilling the Observatory’s goal of “visitor as observer,” free public telescope viewing is available each evening skies are clear and the building is open. More people (8 million) have looked through the Observatory’s Zeiss 12-inch refracting telescope than through any other on Earth. More than 17 million have seen a live program in the Observatory’s Samuel Oschin Planetarium. The building operated continuously from 1935 until January 6, 2002, when it closed for a comprehensive renovation and expansion. This ambitious $93-million project renewed the Observatory's world-class standing and restored and enhanced the Observatory's ability to pursue its public astronomy mission, all driven by a commitment to excellence and enabled by a successful public-private partnership between the City of Los Angeles and Friends Of The Observatory. Four goals guided all planning for the project: 1. Renovate all elements of the existing building; 2. Develop a state-of-the-art, immersive planetarium environment; 3. Expand public space to improve the visitor experience; and 4. Design and develop an inspiring new exhibit program. The renewed building reopened to the public on November 2, 2006. *Also, famous for: Tesla Coil, and the James Dean, Natalie Wood scene from "Rebel Without a Cause."

The Venice Canal Historic District is a district in the Venice section of Los Angeles, California. The district is noteworthy for its man-made canals built in 1905 by developer Abbot Kinney. Kinney sought to recreate the appearance and feel of Venice, Italy, in Southern California. The canals are roughly bounded by Eastern Court on the east, Court A on the south, Strongs Drive on the west, and Court E on the north. There are four east-west canals (Carroll Canal, Linnie Canal, Howland Canal, and Sherman Canal) and two north-south canals (Eastern Canal and Grand Canal). The beautifully lit canals with gondoliers and arched bridges drew widespread publicity and helped sell lots in the development. However, as the automobile gained in popularity, the canals were viewed by many as outdated, and the bulk of the canals were filled in 1929 to create roads. By 1940, the remaining canals had fallen into disrepair, and the sidewalks were condemned by the city. The canal district remained in poor condition for more than 40 years, as numerous proposals to renovate the canals failed due to lack of funding, environmental concerns, and disputes as to who should bear the financial responsibility. The canals were finally renovated in 1992, with the canals being drained and new sidewalks and walls being built. The canals re-opened in 1993 and have become a desirable and expensive residential section of the city.

Historic hotel and cultural landmark, this is Hollywood old-school lodging at its finest. The hotel was designed by architect Arnold A. Weitzman and William Douglas Lee and completed in 1929. It was modeled loosely after the Château d'Amboise, a royal retreat in France's Loire Valley. The Chateau Marmont Annex was designed by architect W. Gayle Daniel.

Historic hotel and cultural landmark, this is Hollywood old-school lodging at its finest. The hotel was designed by architect Arnold A. Weitzman and William Douglas Lee and completed in 1929. It was modeled loosely after the Château d'Amboise, a royal retreat in France's Loire Valley. The Chateau Marmont Annex was designed by architect W. Gayle Daniel. The hotel has 63 rooms and suites priced from $575 to $3,000 per night. Throughout the years, Chateau Marmont has gained recognition.

Travel Town, L.A.'s City Recreation and Park Department’s unique display of vehicles representing many modes and eras of conveyances, is visited each week by hundreds of youngsters and adults. The railroad is built around the perimeter of the Travel Town Museum. The museum has an outstanding collection of significant locomotives and rolling stock from Southern California. Travel Town was developed in the 1950’s. For many years the City operated a narrow gauge railroad ride along the Los Angeles River and Zoo Drive. When the steam locomotive could no longer operate, they began operating a trolley car until it too wore out. In 1975 the City of Los Angeles contracted with Railroad Supply Corporation (RSC) to build a miniature train ride within the museum. A team of employees led by E. V. Gustavson designed and built the 16” gauge track in about a year. The City then gave RSC a contract to operate the train ride. RSC purchased a live steam train from Gene Autry’s Melody Ranch and operated it until the boiler rusted out on the locomotive. New non-steam locomotives were custom built to replace the steamer and to this day they pull the original Melody Ranch coaches.

One of the nation's first malls, and the first modern, American, Chinatown. Owned and planned from the ground up by Chinese, Central Plaza provides a magnificent cultural experience. Though small in terms of area, the list of things to do in Chinatown runs long enough to fill an afternoon. Of course, you’ll find the tastiest dim sum west of the San Gabriel Valley, but there are also grocery stores that stock those hard-to-find ingredients, under-the-radar art galleries, cultural festivals, dimly lit dive bars and a culinary scene that’s abuzz. Chinatown roughly occupies an area between the 101 and 110 freeways and the L.A. River. Most of the major attractions are along Hill Street and Broadway, north of Cesar Chavez Avenue—but a bustling scene has also blossomed just off an industrial stretch of Spring Street near the river. So, take a tour of the area’s attractions and discover some of the best activities, both inside and outside of the Central Plaza.

Mulholland Drive is a street and road in the eastern Santa Monica Mountains of Southern California. It is named after pioneering Los Angeles civil engineer William Mulholland. The western rural portion in Los Angeles and Ventura Counties is named Mulholland Highway. The road is featured in a significant number of movies, songs, and novels. David Lynch, who wrote and directed a film named after Mulholland Drive, has said that one can feel "the history of Hollywood" on it. The main portion of the road, from Cahuenga Pass in Hollywood westward past Sepulveda Pass, was originally called Mulholland Highway and was opened in 1924. It was built by a consortium of developers investing in the Hollywood Hills. DeWitt Reaburn, the construction engineer responsible for the project, said while it was being built, "The Mulholland Highway is destined to be one of the heaviest traveled and one of the best known scenic roads in the United States." http://www.latourist.com/index.php?page=auto-tour-mulholland

The Four Ladies of Hollywood Gazebo was commissioned in 1993 by the Los Angeles Community Redevelopment Agency Art Program and created by the architect, production designer, and film director Catherine Hardwicke as a tribute to the multi-ethnic women of Hollywood. The domed structure is held aloft by the statues of four significant, multi-ethnic actresses in Hollywood that were sculpted by Harl West. They are Brooklyn born multi-ethnic actress Mae West, the African-American actress Dorothy Dandridge, Asian-American actress Anna May Wong and Mexican actress Dolores del Río. The weather vane at the top is Marilyn Monroe in her iconic billowing skirt pose (which was sawed off on June 16, 2019, by Austin Mikel Clay, 25, who vandalized Trump's Star on the Walk of Fame with a pickax on July 25, 2018). The Gazebo was dedicated in February of 1994. The ladies have been waiting patiently for over two decades to greet you as you start down the Hollywood Walk of Fame. When I came to LA, I was told every actor is supposed to stand in the middle of the four ladies and make a wish if they want to make it in Hollywood. So go ahead and make a wish! Who knows?

Greystone Mansion, a historic site with a storied past, is tucked away in the hills and often overlooked. The mansion and spectacular gardens are home to some of the most elegant special events. ​Park grounds are usually open to the public daily, but may occasionally be closed for holidays, filming or special events. The Greystone Mansion, also known as the Doheny Mansion, is a Tudor Revival mansion on a landscaped estate with distinctive formal English gardens, located in Beverly Hills, California, United States. Architect Gordon Kaufmann designed the residence and ancillary structures, and construction was completed in 1928. The estate was a gift from oil tycoon Edward L. Doheny to his son, Edward "Ned" Doheny, Jr., and his family. Following the purchase of the estate by the city of Beverly Hills in 1965, the property became a city park in 1971, and was subsequently added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1976 as Doheny Estate/Greystone. The house and grounds are often used in filmmaking and television production. The house's descending staircase is one of the most famous sets in Hollywood. No fee for parking or park admission on open park days.

Santa Catalina Island (Tongva: Pimugna or Pimu) is a rocky island off the coast of the U.S. state of California in the Gulf of Santa Catalina. The island name is often shortened to Catalina Island or just Catalina. The island is 22 mi (35 km) long and 8 mi (13 km) across at its greatest width. The island is located about 29 mi (47 km) south-southwest of Long Beach, California. The highest point on the island is 2,097 ft (639 m) Mount Orizaba. Santa Catalina is part of the Channel Islands of California archipelago and lies within Los Angeles County. Catalina was originally settled by the Tongva, who called the island Pimugna or Pimu and referred to themselves as Pimugnans or Pimuvit. The first Europeans to arrive on Catalina claimed it for the Spanish Empire. Over the years, territorial claims to the island transferred to Mexico and then to the United States. During this time, the island was sporadically used for smuggling, otter hunting, and gold-digging, before successfully being developed into a tourist destination by chewing gum magnate William Wrigley, Jr. beginning in the 1920s. Since the 1970s, most of the island has been administered by the Catalina Island Conservancy. Its total population in the 2010 census was 4,096 people, 90 percent of whom live in the island's only incorporated city, Avalon. The second center of population is the unincorporated village of Two Harbors at the island's isthmus. Development occurs also at the smaller settlements of Rancho Escondido and Middle Ranch. The remaining population is scattered over the island between the two population centers. he island is home to five native land mammals: the island fox, the Spermophilus beecheyi nesioticus subspecies of California ground squirrel, the Santa Catalina Island harvest mouse (Reithrodontomys megalotis catalinae), the Santa Catalina Island deer mouse (Peromyscus maniculatus catalinae), and the ornate shrew (Sorex ornatus). Only one ornate shrew was ever found, from a now-developed spring area above Avalon. Shrews are difficult to capture and may survive in wetter areas of the island. The Catalina orangetip butterfly is a notable insect of the island. The Southern Pacific rattlesnake (Crotalus oreganus helleri) is also present on the island. This species should not be confused for the Santa Catalina rattlesnake, found on Santa Catalina Island, Mexico. The island is also home to a number of non-native animals, notably including the American bison. In 1924, fourteen bison were brought to the island for the filming of the Western movie The Vanishing American (written by Catalina resident, Zane Grey) though the scenes with the bison did not make it into the final cut of the film. Due to cost overruns, the film company decided to leave the bison on the island instead of bringing them back to the mainland. Today the size of the Catalina Island bison herd is maintained at population of about 150 animals. Other non-native animals currently living on the island include the blackbuck, bullfrog, feral cat, mule deer, rat, and common starling. The island was also previously home to populations of cattle, feral goat, feral pig, and sheep, but these animals are no longer present. According to the Catalina Island Conservancy, there are 37 resident bird species on the island. Considerably more marine, pelagic, and migrating birds frequent the island, and 127 species have been reported to the Cornell University eBird database from 10 different eBird hotspots. There are several live camera feeds showing bald eagle nests on the island; nests are active February–July. In the waters surrounding the island, there are schools of fish like Garibaldi, California sheephead, leopard sharks, white seabass, yellowtail, bat rays, giant sea bass, and many more. Great white sharks are also occasionally found or caught off the coast of Catalina, though usually around seal rookeries and not around inhabited areas. Common marine mammals around Catalina include California sea lions and harbor seals. Infamous for: Actress Natalie Wood drowned in the waters near the settlement of Two Harbors under questionable circumstances over the Thanksgiving holiday weekend in 1981. Wood and her husband, Robert Wagner, were vacationing aboard their motor yacht, Splendour, along with their guest, Christopher Walken, and Splendour's captain, Dennis Davern. In 2011, thirty years after the actress' death, the case was reopened, partially due to public statements made by Davern.

Santa Catalina Island (Tongva: Pimugna or Pimu) is a rocky island off the coast of the U.S. state of California in the Gulf of Santa Catalina. The island name is often shortened to Catalina Island or just Catalina. The island is 22 mi (35 km) long and 8 mi (13 km) across at its greatest width. The island is located about 29 mi (47 km) south-southwest of Long Beach, California. The highest point on the island is 2,097 ft (639 m) Mount Orizaba. Santa Catalina is part of the Channel Islands of California archipelago and lies within Los Angeles County. Catalina was originally settled by the Tongva, who called the island Pimugna or Pimu and referred to themselves as Pimugnans or Pimuvit. The first Europeans to arrive on Catalina claimed it for the Spanish Empire. Over the years, territorial claims to the island transferred to Mexico and then to the United States. During this time, the island was sporadically used for smuggling, otter hunting, and gold-digging, before successfully being developed into a tourist destination by chewing gum magnate William Wrigley, Jr. beginning in the 1920s.

The Capitol Records Building, also known as the Capitol Records Tower, is a Hollywood Boulevard Commercial and Entertainment District building that is located in Hollywood, Los Angeles. The building is a thirteen-story tower that was designed by Louis Naidorf (who was working at Welton Becket Associates at the time), and is one of the city's landmarks. Construction occurred soon after British company EMI acquired Capitol Records in 1955, and was completed in April 1956. Located just north of the Hollywood and Vine intersection, the Capitol Records Tower houses the consolidation of Capitol Records' West Coast operations and is home to the recording studios and echo chambers of Capitol Studios. The building is a Los Angeles Historic-Cultural Monument. The blinking light atop the tower spells out the word "Hollywood" in Morse code. This was an idea of Capitol's then-president, Alan Livingston, who wanted to advertise Capitol's status as the first record label with a base on the west coast. Leila Morse activated the switch, granddaughter of Samuel Morse. During the year 1992, the light changed to read "Capitol 50," in honor of the label's fiftieth anniversary. A black-and-white graphic image of the building appeared on the albums of many Capitol recording artists, with the phrase, "From the Sound Capitol of the World". Located on the south wall of the Capitol Records Building, Hollywood Jazz: 1945-1972 is a mural created by artist Richard Wyatt.

The Magic Castle, the clubhouse of the Academy of Magical Arts, is private, allowing entrance only to members and their guests, or through courtesy invitations which are available to magicians visiting from out of the United States. A typical evening—if there even is such a thing here—features magic shows that range from miracles right under your nose to full stage illusions that stun an entire room. The Castle is full of rare memorabilia and magnificent posters, so there’s a lot to see. There’s also a critically acclaimed full-service dining room and a number of unique bars, each with its own personality, making it easy to find just the perfect spot for whatever mood you’re in. Don’t be surprised to look over your shoulder and find somebody performing a minor miracle. You’ll soon understand why your visit will be one of the most amazing evenings you’ve ever experienced. 3 ways to get yourself inside where all the magic happens: 1. It pays to know someone! Know a member or a friend of a member! For most Angelenos, this will be the easiest way to enter. Finding a friend who can get you into the Magic Castle is like playing six degrees of separation: It’s almost a sure thing that your friend’s coworker’s cousin can get you in. Members can hand out guest passes like candy; get one and you’re in, though expect to pay upwards of $75 for the cover charge and dinner. (The door charge is $25 per person from Monday to Thursday nights and during weekend brunch, and $35 per person from Friday to Sunday during the evening.) If you attend the castle accompanied by a member, you can forgo those entry fees, depending on their type of membership. 2. Email! That's right!!! Send the magician performing an email, and tell him or her you're a huge fan (of the magician and magic), and would love to attend the show. If you take a look at the Magic Castle’s show schedule, you’ll find a list of magicians coming to the club over the next month or so. Try emailing a performer whose show you’d wish to attend and they can add you to the guest list. Just make sure to ask nicely—they’re magicians, after all, so they’ll know if your sincerity is just an illusion. And again, be prepared for that cover charge and dinner. (Psst: You can make dinner reservations up to 12 weeks in advance.) 3. Membership does have its privileges! You can apply for an associate membership into the Academy of Magical Arts, no magic training required. When applying, it helps to know someone who’s already a member, otherwise, you may be on the wait list for a bit (don’t worry, it’s only about two or three months’ worth of waiting, which could be much worse, considering the program’s popularity). If accepted, you can visit whenever you’d like, with no door charge or dining minimum. You can also keep your eyes peeled for trial membership offers, which can grant limited-run perks at a fraction of the annual cost. Alternatively, if you’ve already mastered sleight of hand, then consider applying and auditioning for a magician membership, whether your’re local or global.

The HOLLYWOOD SIGN: (YOU HAVE OPTIONS! SO, READ BELOW. YOU DON'T HAVE TO VIEW FROM THIS POINT ON THE MAP...and GLENN HOLLY is a little further NORTH than this point on the map) The Hollywood Sign is an American landmark and cultural icon overlooking Hollywood, Los Angeles, California. It is situated on Mount Lee, in the Hollywood Hills area of the Santa Monica Mountains. "HOLLYWOOD" is spelled out in 45-foot-tall white capital letters and is 350 feet long. Originally created in 1923, the then “Hollywoodland” sign was supposed to be up for only a year and a half, yet here it is almost a century later. Best Places to See It: N Beachwood Dr and Glen Holly Street Griffith Observatory Gower and Franklin Hollywood Forever Cemetery Hollywood Reservoir How To View the Hollywood Sign You can't get close enough to the Hollywood Sign to touch it. It's fenced in to keep out vandals and curious visitors, guarded by a high-tech alarm system. If you get too close — and forget about the touching — you can count on being arrested. If you want to do something else after that instead of sitting around waiting to get bailed out, you'll have to be content to see it from around town. If you go to see the Hollywood sign by automobile, you'll find signs at the entrance to many streets. They may say there's no access to the Hollywood sign or that the street is closed. That's strictly true, but a bit misleading. Just because you can't access the sign doesn't necessarily mean you can't see it. Hollywood Sign From Beachwood Canyon: The view is nice from the intersection of Beachwood and Glen Holly. A block or so further up the street you can get a clear view between the houses. This view is from the Beachwood Canyon subdivision that the sign was initially built to advertise, back when it still said "Hollywoodland." The view is good from the intersection of Beachwood and Glen Holly. A block or so further up the street, you can get a clear view between the houses. Hollywood Sign from the Hollywood Reservoir: The 3.5-mile walking loop around the Hollywood Reservoir may be one of the best short walks in LA. The mostly flat trail presents views of the lake and the iconic Hollywood sign along its entire length. The path curves through tree-shaded areas broken by open vistas. You might see a deer or hawk soaring overhead. Or get a view of Hollywood through the trees. The most common directions online recommend taking Barham Blvd to Lake Hollywood Drive. Instead, you can navigate to 6451 Weidlake Drive. Follow the road past that address to a small parking area near a gate. Start by walking across the beautiful Mulholland Dam, then walk around the reservoir or double back when you get half tired (if you can figure out when that is). Hollywood Sign from Hollywood Forever Cemetery: Hollywood Forever is at 6000 Santa Monica Blvd. next door to Paramount Studios. To see the sign, go inside the cemetery gate and look behind you. Seeing the Hollywood Sign from Hollywood Forever Cemetery makes you wonder if the stars of yesteryear buried there get a permanent view of the word that defined their careers. Hollywood Sign from the Griffith Park Observatory: From the Griffith Observatory parking lot, look for the James Dean bust with the Hollywood sign in the background. The observatory is where the ending scenes of Dean's film Rebel Without a Cause were shot. The unobstructed view of the Hollywood sign behind it is a good photo op, but you'll find a lot more to do at that location in the Griffith Park Observatory Guide. Hollywood Sign from Franklin Avenue at Gower: In the heyday of silent films "Gower Gulch" was a popular hangout for unemployed movie cowboys. The view is nice, but it's not good for a photograph because of utility wires running across the street. If you want to go, set your GPS to 1900 N. Gower St. Hiking for a View of the Hollywood Sign: You can take an easy hike that goes to a good view, but not all the way to the sign. There are no public restrooms on this route. Take care of "business" before you set out. Choose 3390 Deronda Drive, Los Angeles as your destination. Ignore signs that say there's no Hollywood Sign access. Also, ignore signs saying the road is closed. Technically, it is closed (it's a dead end), but that doesn't mean you can't continue to the end. When Deronda reaches a dead end, you'll see a metal gate on the right. Find a legal place to park nearby and don't be THAT person who blocks someone else's driveway. Not only is it rude, but local homeowners know (and will use) the phone number for the tow truck that will take your vehicle away. Look for an arched opening in the wall near the gate and go through the opening. From there, it's pretty easy to figure out what to do. Walk a short distance uphill to two spots for viewing the sign.

The Hollywood Palladium is a theater located at 6215 Sunset Boulevard in Hollywood, California. It was built in a Streamline Moderne, Art Deco style and includes an 11,200 square foot (1040 m²) dance floor including a mezzanine and a floor level with room for up to 4,000 people. The theater was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 2016.Los Angeles Times publisher Norman Chandler funded the construction of the art deco Hollywood Palladium at a cost of $1.6 million in 1940. It was built where the original Paramount lot once stood by film producer Maurice Cohen and is located between Argyle and El Centro avenues. The dance hall was designed by Gordon Kaufmann, architect of the Greystone Mansion, the Los Angeles Times building and the Santa Anita Racetrack in Arcadia. He was also the architect for the Hoover Dam and early Caltech dorms. The ballroom opened on October 31, 1940[2] with a dance featuring Tommy Dorsey and his Orchestra and band vocalist Frank Sinatra. It had six bars serving liquor and two more serving soft drinks and a $1 cover charge and a $3 charge for dinner. During World War II, the Palladium hosted radio broadcasts featuring Betty Grable greeting servicemens' song requests. Big Band acts began losing popularity in the 1950s, causing the Palladium to hold charity balls, political events, auto shows, and rock concerts. In 1961, it became the home of the long-running Lawrence Welk Show. The Hollywood Palladium has been featured in many movies and TV shows over the years: *The Day of the Locust (1975). *Skatetown, U.S.A. (1979). *The final concert scene in The Blues Brothers depicted as "Palace Hotel Ballroom". The exterior was actually the South Shore Country Club in Chicago. (1980). *Richard Pryor performed two dates in December 1981 and was filmed for the theatrical release Richard Pryor: Live on the Sunset Strip in March 1982. *Keith Richards released a CD and DVD of his solo concert Live at the Hollywood Palladium, December 15, 1988. *The punk band Bad Religion recorded Live at the Palladium in 2006, a collection from their two days of performances. *Thrash Metal band Megadeth filmed a live DVD based on the 20th anniversary of their album Rust in Peace at The Palladium. *Luna Sea performed their first American concert at the Palladium on December 4, 2010. It was recorded in 3D and released as both a live album and concert film, Luna Sea 3D in Los Angeles. *In 2016 Dave Chappelle filmed his Netflix special at Palladium.

The theater was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 2016.Los Angeles Times publisher Norman Chandler funded the construction of the art deco Hollywood Palladium at a cost of $1.6 million in 1940. It was built where the original Paramount lot once stood by film producer Maurice Cohen and is located between Argyle and El Centro avenues. The dance hall was designed by Gordon Kaufmann, architect of the Greystone Mansion, the Los Angeles Times building and the Santa Anita Racetrack in Arcadia. He was also the architect for the Hoover Dam and early Caltech dorms. The ballroom opened on October 31, 1940[2] with a dance featuring Tommy Dorsey and his Orchestra and band vocalist Frank Sinatra. It had six bars serving liquor and two more serving soft drinks and a $1 cover charge and a $3 charge for dinner. During World War II, the Palladium hosted radio broadcasts featuring Betty Grable greeting servicemens' song requests. Big Band acts began losing popularity in the 1950s, causing the Palladium to hold charity balls, political events, auto shows, and rock concerts. In 1961, it became the home of the long-running Lawrence Welk Show. The Hollywood Palladium has been featured in many movies and TV shows over the years: *The Day of the Locust (1975). *Skatetown, U.S.A. (1979). *The final concert scene in The Blues Brothers depicted as "Palace Hotel Ballroom". The exterior was actually the South Shore Country Club in Chicago. (1980). *Richard Pryor performed two dates in December 1981 and was filmed for the theatrical release Richard Pryor: Live on the Sunset Strip in March 1982. *Keith Richards released a CD and DVD of his solo concert Live at the Hollywood Palladium, December 15, 1988. *The punk band Bad Religion recorded Live at the Palladium in 2006, a collection from their two days of performances. *Thrash Metal band Megadeth filmed a live DVD based on the 20th anniversary of their album Rust in Peace at The Palladium. *Luna Sea performed their first American concert at the Palladium on December 4, 2010. It was recorded in 3D and released as both a live album and concert film, Luna Sea 3D in Los Angeles. *In 2016 Dave Chappelle filmed his Netflix special at Palladium.

The Rose Bowl, also known as Spieker Field at the Rose Bowl, is an American outdoor athletic stadium, located in Pasadena, California, a northeast suburb of Los Angeles. Opened in October 1922, the stadium is recognized as a National Historic Landmark and a California Historic Civil Engineering landmark.

One of the most famous venues in sporting history, the Rose Bowl is best known as a college football venue, specifically as the host of the annual Rose Bowl Game for which it is named. Since 1982, it has also served as the home stadium of the UCLA Bruins football team. The stadium has also hosted five Super Bowl games, second most of any venue. The Rose Bowl is also a noted soccer venue, having hosted the 1994 FIFA World Cup Final, 1999 FIFA Women's World Cup Final, and the 1984 Olympic Gold Medal Match, as well as numerous CONCACAF and United States Soccer Federation matches. It's not just all sports, the Bowl hosts many other events and concerts throughout the year. Check out their calendar of events.

The Forum is a multi-purpose indoor arena in Inglewood, California, adjacent to Los Angeles. Located between West Manchester Boulevard, across Pincay Drive and Kareem Court, it is north of the under-construction Los Angeles Stadium at Hollywood Park and the Hollywood Park Casino. It is about three miles east of Los Angeles International Airport (LAX). Opening on December 30, 1967, the Forum was an unusual and groundbreaking structure. Architect Charles Luckman's vision was brought to life by engineers Carl Johnson and Svend Nielsen, who were able to engineer the structure so that it had no major support pillars. This had previously been unheard of in an indoor arena the size of the Forum. The arena is visible on the landing approach to the LAX from the east. With Madison Square Garden, it was once one of the best-known indoor sports venues in the U.S. The Forum achieved its greatest fame as home to the Los Angeles Lakers of the National Basketball Association and the Los Angeles Kings of the National Hockey League from 1967 to 1999, when the teams moved to Staples Center to join the Los Angeles Clippers (who moved to Staples Center from the Los Angeles Memorial Sports Arena). The Forum was also the home of the WNBA's Los Angeles Sparks from 1997 to their 2001 move to Staples Center. The Forum was the site of the 1972 and 1983 NBA All-Star Games, the 1981 NHL All-Star Game, 1984 Olympic basketball and hosted the Big West Conference (from 1983 to 1988) and the 1989 Pacific-10 Conference men's basketball tournaments. It was acquired in 2000 by the Faithful Central Bible Church, which used it for occasional church services and leased it for sporting events, concerts and other events. In 2012, the Forum was purchased by the Madison Square Garden Company (MSG), owners of New York City's Madison Square Garden, for $23.5 million; MSG announced plans to renovate the arena as a world-class concert venue.

The magnificent interior of The Wiltern evokes a period of elegance and style simply not found anywhere in today's modern venues. The entrance is set back among colorful terrazzo paving, and its art deco design contains decorative tile work along with colorful murals. The most dramatic element of the overall design is the sunburst on the ceiling of the auditorium, with each ray representing its own art deco skyscraper. The venue offers the perfect vibe and shape for a variety of events. Originally built in 1931 in Los Angeles, the Wiltern was designed by architect Stiles O. Clements of Morgan, Walls & Clements, the city's oldest architectural firm. The Wiltern Theatre was originally designed as a vaudeville theater and initially opened as the Warner Brothers Western Theater, the flagship for the theater chain. In 1956, the building and theater were sold to the Franklin Life Insurance Company of Springfield, Illinois. The Los Angeles chapter of the American Theater Organ Enthusiasts worked to restore the theater's 37-rank Kimball pipe organ, reputed to be the largest one in Los Angeles at the time, and held recitals there through the late 1960s and into the mid-1970s. Through the intervention of a group of local preservationists, the group saved the complex from being demolished on two occasions in the late 1970s when the owners filed for demolition permits. (The preservation of the Wiltern was one of the Los Angeles Conservancy's first victories in its fight to preserve the architectural heritage of the City.) In 1981, the Wiltern was purchased by developer Wayne Ratkovich who worked with architect Brenda Levin to restore both the theater and the office building to their former glory. Previous successes with the Fine Arts Building and the Oviatt Building renovations in downtown Los Angeles and the refurbishing of the nearby Chapman Market complex on Sixth Street convinced many in the city that they were the right people for the job. To restore the theater to its original state required some expert craftsmanship to repair what was there including A.T. Heinsbergen, the son of the original painter and some creativity to replace what had been lost including salvaging vintage Art Deco seats from the soon to be renovated Paramount Theater in Portland, Oregon. Further, while it was originally designed and run as a movie theater, Ratkovich wanted to convert the Wiltern into a performing arts center that could host live concerts and Broadway-level stage performances-which entailed opening up the rear wall and extending the stage and stage house of the theater back fifteen feet. After a four-year renovation the Wiltern Theatre finally opened again to the public on May 1, 1985 with performances by the Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater company. The Wiltern was operated as a producing theater, and hosted its own live performances and those sponsored by Avalon Attractions, Goldenvoice, Concerts West, Universal Concerts, Timeless Entertainment, and many others, and was used for many televised events, commercial filming and feature film locations. The Wiltern Theatre originally seated 2,344. Subsequent modifications in 2002 removed the 1,200 permanent seats on the ground floor to allow for a variety of configurations from a standing room only crowd of 2,300 to a more intimate seated arrangement holding 1850 people. The loge and mezzanine levels in the balcony continue to offer fixed theater seats. The venue remains one of the largest theaters in Los Angeles.

This ode to the Redwood landscape of California comes complete with an array of mechanized raccoons, waterfalls and moose heads. This space is often billed as the largest of its kind in the world. Originally constructed in 1931, the current menu still offers some of the original staples such as bowls of Jell-O, candied prunes, and a damn good banana cream pie.

Republique is a serious dining experience. First, put your wallet far, far away and don’t plan on thinking about it for the next few hours. Second, take your time. The restaurant is a masterclass in interesting flavors and the art of actually taking your time to experience them. Start with their take on chips and dip (it’s actually pork rinds) and the best basket of bread ever baked. Make your way through the salads, the French pastas (the white corn agnolotti is a must) and end with a beef short rib or lamb shank that you’ll be thinking about for months. This is culinary nirvana everybody. A restaurant that’s truly changing the game, taking risks, and taking us on the ride with them.

This European-style food hall has been operating on the ground floor of the iconic Homer Laughlin Building since 1917. Even if you’re not there for the food, it’s worth a trip; people from all corners of L.A. mix and mingle among rows of spices, produce and vintage neon signage. Of course, if you’re hungry it’s a great place to get cheap pupusas, carnitas tacos and aguas frescas, as well as food from handsome, trendy eateries like Sticky Rice, Belcampo, Horse Thief BBQ, Eggslut and G&B Coffee.
