This sleek patch of high-rises on the west side once functioned as the backlot of 20th Century Fox studios. By 1960, the studio needed money, so it sold off the property to become a mixed commercial and residential development. Today, many Hollywood transactions are still made along the Avenue of the Stars in Century City. Foodies will find some great dining in the area, such as Tom Colicchio's Craft, located in the heart of Century City. The outdoor Century City Mall attracts locals and the occasional celebrity, pretending to ignore paparazzi while shopping the strip.
Getting Around Los Angeles
The best way to get around Los Angeles is by car. There is an excellent public transportation system available as an alternative, but generally L.A. is best covered by car. No one walks in L.A., except on the beach.
