Lucky travelers might be visiting LA at the same time an
awards show is going on. In late February, the city buzzes with Oscar
mania. Although only a select few get tickets to the actual event,
there are many viewing parties held in the area.
TV fans can try to catch a glimpse of their favorite stars at
the Primetime Emmys, held annually in mid-September. And for a less
formal event, the MTV Movie Awards occur every year in June. It is the
only awards show that lets the public pick the winners.
The Grauman's Chinese Theatre and Hollywood
Walk of Fame are two of the city's finest landmarks. See
where the famous hand-print tradition began at the Chinese Theater, a
distinctive landmark with hundreds of star signatures and hand/foot
prints in its entryway.
Afterwards, meander down the Hollywood Walk of Fame and view
more than 2,500 marble stars dedicated to famous personalities in all
aspects of entertainment.
Stargazing is a popular pastime in Los Angeles. Starline Tours
offers a great Movie Stars Homes tour, where visitors can see estates
owned by world-famous celebrities. For fantastic aerial views of the
rich and famous while feeling like a celebrity yourself, lift off with
the Celebrity Homes Helicopter Tour.
Here in LA, you'll find the biggest studios, the brightest
stars, and guided tours to explore them all. The only trouble is
deciding what to do first.
