Hollywood visits in Los Angeles

After visit Las Vegas, our road trip through the United States leads us The Angels.

We had decided to go directly to Hollywood, after doubts about taking a longer tour and crossing the Death Valley National Park, but finally we discard it.

It has been a day of transition, of road, of arriving in California, the promised land. Pleasant trip, with greener and less arid landscapes than seen in Arizona.

Along the way we stopped for a good time in a restaurant called Peggy Sue Belonging, I think, to a chain of the same name and that is fully decorated with motifs from the 50s. It really is fun and enjoyable.

The staff and the waitresses, ladies of a certain age, were also dressed at that time. They prepared us the best hot dog, according to them, from this part of the world, which was really good (I repeated!).

We arrived at the hotel in Hollywood around 1:15 p.m. and we headed straight for lunch at one of the three restaurants that were recommended. Finally we lean towards a Thai restaurant called Thai Patio, situated in Hollywood Boulevard.

At first I noticed some reluctance in my travel and table companions in terms of selecting the dishes, but finally we really liked Thai food and beer.

Hollywood Walk of Fame in Los Angeles

Actually our stay in Los Angeles focused almost exclusively on Hollywood and surroundings.

Los Angeles is a great metropolis, without a downtown unique, formed by a multitude of neighborhoods or areas, in which n occasions are differentiated by ethnic groups (Thai neighborhood, Chinatown, Armenian neighborhood, Polish, Vietnamese, ...).

The Hispanic is very present in all Los Angeles areas, and it is the language heard in the streets. In the supermarket where we were going to buy near the hotel (we stayed 3 nights), all the service was Hispanic.

The cashier, at our request, explained that he was very well in the United States, where he worked and led a decent life. He also told us that the level of security in Los Angeles depended on the areas of the city, and that, in general, everything was very safe, but that we could not think of passing a street (I don't remember which one ...) because from There it was dangerous.

After lunch, we have walked towards Hollywwod Boulevard, where we saw from outside the Madame Tussaud's and the Kodak Theater. In the distance, on a nearby hill, we can also see the great and famous and huge HOLLYWOOD poster.

I remind you that Hollywood It is a district of the city of Los Angeles whose name is associated with the headquarters of the American film industry.


Hollywood Walk of Fame in Los Angeles

The first studio in the Hollywood area was founded in 1911. During that same year another 15 studies were established there, mainly, due to the good weather that facilitated outdoor shooting.

Since then, the Hollywood district it evolved into the mecca of cinema throughout the western world. Hollywood is now more a nostalgic brand than a reality in the world of cinema.

The studios and producers Universal Pictures, Fox Film Corporation (later known as the 20th Century Fox), United Artists, Warner Bros, Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer, Columbia Pictures, Paramount Pictures, Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures Group and others are located here known.


Urban transport in Los Angeles

We spent a long time touring the area, the Hollywood Boulevard, looking for the names of movie eminences on the floor stars, as well as the foot and hand prints on the Hall of Fame.

Many fashion stores, with a lot of paraphernalia towards movie stars. We entered a shopping center where we had some fruit juices squeezed at the time, which were really fresh and tasty.

We walked back the five kilometers that separated us from the hotel.

Today we have already covered 5,000 miles !! And we remain healthy, saved, motivated and enjoying !!

Hot day in and around Las Vegas, and cool in Hollywood, only 20 degrees.
