Just the thought of Hollywood Hills conjures images of 1920s starlets lounging on patios overlooking the Los Angeles skyline. Though that vision has changed over the years, many actors, writers, directors, and producers still reside in these areas towering over Hollywood. There are two parts to the Hills, which are divided by Highway 101. On the east side, Griffith Park dominates the area, and the neighborhoods exude an Old Hollywood feel. The Hollywood Sign is also on the east side of the hills, in an area known as Beachwood Canyon. The west side of the hills embodies the Hollywood lifestyle, defined by such landmarks as the Chateau Marmont and Mulholland Drive. Catch a star-sighting tour while working your glutes at Runyon Canyon, one of the most popular hiking spots in the city.
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.
