Hollywood. That word is, justifiably, world-famous. For decades, young hopefuls have streamed into California, all with the hopes of seeing their name up in lights, and their handprints on the side-walk among the Hollywood Walk of Fame. For travelers, the name is synonymous with glamour. Mann’s Chinese Theater, the Hollywood Sign, the Sunset Strip, and Melrose Avenue.
The iconic images of the movies are never far away in Hollywood. Whether it be a classic or Julia Roberts picking up Richard Gere. To find your own Hollywood memories, look for lodging options in the heart of the action.
