The best Los Angeles attractions
There are many things to do in Hollywood, LA. This is the capital of world entertainment, and it’s probably the place that most people intend on visiting when they say they plan a vacation in LA. Most of the tourist attractions in here are located around Hollywood boulevards, Sunset Boulevard and Melrose Avenue. Most tourists who visit Hollywood are hoping to see a movie star or any kind of celebrity, but the reality is that the chances to catch a movie star “walking in the street” are very slim. Furthermore you should also understand that even if you take the movie stars home tour you will not see the stars… only their big mansions! Some real Hollywood hot spots are the famous Walk of Fame, the Chinese Theatre, and the Hollywood museum – go there to see great pieces of L.A memorabilia!
There are two city passes that will help you explore the Hollywood attractions and save a lot of money. The Go Los Angeles Card grants you free entry to 37 attractions in LA including Universal Studios, Madame Tussaud’s Hollywood, celebrity home tours and tours in all the major studios. You can buy the card for 1,2,3,5 or 7 days, and the price per day drops from $65 per day to $37. The best thing about this card is not the money it will save you, but the fact that you will probably see more places, take more tours and enter more attractions then you would have without the pass, in other words it will change your vacation completely!
The second way to save money and explore more LA attractions is to get a Hollywood Pass. This pass is replacing the Hollywood City Pass that was available till 2014, and it includes attractions such as Madame Tussaud’s, Movie stars homes tour and a city sightseeing 24-hour hop on hop off bus pass. There’s also a Southern California pass that will give you discounts & free entrance to Disneyland, Universal Studios, SeaWorld and more. Check our offers for more detailed and updated information!
