Things to Do in Hollywood

View Map

A bucket list item for the millions who visit every year, Hollywood is a strange brew of tourist traps, world-class entertainment and luxury dining. From a concert at the Hollywood Bowl or a show at the Pantages Theater to the melting pot of humanity among the costumed characters on the Walk of Fame, Hollywood is a playground filled with nostalgic, exhilarating and absurd experiences.

While Hollywood and Highland is one of the most popular attractions in LA, a variety of local activities exist just beyond the tourist zone. The nearby Hollywood Forever Cemetery hosts year-round outdoor movies and concerts, while up and coming comedians perform nearby comedy clubs.

A day or night in Hollywood can be extravagant with box seats at the Hollywood Bowl and bottle service at night clubs or low-key with a hike at Runyon Canyon, a sunset picnic at Barnsdall Art Park or beers at a dive bar.

More than the sum total of its famous landmarks, Hollywood is also home to landmark eateries, hip coffee shops and happening dinner theater scenes.

This mecca of wanderlust, fantasy, and decades of celluloid whimsy is as beautiful and magical in its reality as in the wishes of millions who step into the city each year.
