Hollywood Vacation Guide
Star-struck and wide-eyed is how most visitors find themselves when they encounter this larger-than-life locale on vacations to Hollywood. Whether you're an avid film buff or not, you can't help but be mesmerized by the gloss and glamour of Hollywood. This is where thousands of hopefuls come with silver screen dreams, and you can celeb-spot for the select few that actually make it as you drive through this neighbourhood's mansion-lined streets.
Gazing down on LA, the iconic Hollywood sign is a good place to start exploring the movie capital of the world. There are dozens of tours which promise you trips to stars' homes and lots more, but if you want to head off the beaten path, set off on your own two feet and create your personal walking tour that will lead you to inventive busker performances, quirky boutiques selling one-of-a-kind wares, and tiny cafes that boast about having served Hollywood elites in their almost-famous days and have specials on the menu named after notable clientele.
Hollywood's weather is just as picture perfect as the movies. You can find warm, sunny weather at most times throughout the year and if you're thinking about taking a last minute trip, try to avoid booking all inclusive deals during the summer holidays, around Christmas, New Year's, and during any long weekends. Flights and hotels also tend to be more expensive if major events and conventions are being held in the city, so check Los Angeles' tourism website to see if your travel dates coincide with any of these.
Avoiding the peak tourist seasons, cheap vacations to Hollywood are fairly easy to find throughout the rest of the year and you can get an all inclusive deal to suit your budget no matter how low-budget or extravagant you want to go. Keep in mind that LA receives most of its rainfall between January and March so your outdoor sightseeing plans may be marred by occasional showers, and if you choose to vacation here in the summertime, be prepared to face the city's frequent smog.
