Great video man, this was some great information for me. I just moved to LA not too long ago so thank you for that. I’ve already been up to the Hollywood sign and behind it and got some great pictures. Helped a few other people with their pictures too. It’s very pretty up there and a fun hike 🙂

bawain says:

I don’t find it interesting at all… why would I drive and then walk just to take a picture with HOLLYWOOD sign? what a waste of energy ,, no thanx

JaTonna Cowan says:

NaeandNea says:

Great video, found a few ideas that I hadn’t considered!

Kaz Gn says:

The Oscars are actually held at the nearby Dolby Theater (formerly the Kodak). It was actually built for that purpose in mind. Grauman’s DID do a couple of Oscar ceremonies way back in the day! 🙂

Marc de Gat says:

You have given a run down of the most dreaded things to do in LA. and at the same time given incorrect information that could get tourists in trouble. The worst advice was about the Hollywood sign. You should not try to go up to the sign; the residents deserve their peace and privacy and there are fines for those who do not obey the posted restrictions. The Hollywood Walk of Fame consists of silly stars that the “stars” have paid for to have people walk over, puke, spit, defecate and ignore. Most of stars are from days gone by so names that have been forgotten and most of them are dirty. Hollywood Blvd is not a glamorous destination. While downtown one should make a visit to Grand Central Market or the Jewelry District or not defunct tram cars. You should have mentioned La Brea Tar Pits, LACMA and MOMA, both Getty museums. What you have suggested is the bottom of the barrel. TSK TSK

Stacy A says:

Is this all doable in one day? I’ll be in LA next week and our flight comes in around 9am. We’re traveling to Oceanside but wanted to show my friends LA the first day and this is the perfect little tour just wondering if we should do everything in this order and if we’d have time for it all if we started that early?

priyanka p Prabha says:

Very useful information… Thank you..

Bill Kahn says:

What’s the name of the street you are diving at 2:13 where the Beverly Hills sign is?

Izziebiz says:

Griffith conservatory has good view of the Hollywood sign

Roderick Long says:

Saying that Rodeo Drive was made famous by “Pretty Woman” is like saying that London was made famous by “Skyfall.”

aljacko1 says:

Jordan Pollack says:

Hi Guys! If you’re visiting Los Angeles anytime soon, My company https://www.youmehimandher.com has Vacation Rentals Fully ready to go, and really amazing for the price compared to hotels in LA. I have penthouse condo’s, with rooftop pools from $200 a night, to full 4 bedroom homes with a view of the city, and pool for as little as $1,500 a night! Hotels for a one bedroom in the area go for as low as $500 a night! Call us, we’d love to help you. LA is expensive, but it doesn’t need to be!

justmetee says:

Be sure not to engage in conversation with those “Do you like music?” scam artists outside the Chinese Theatre… They ask your name, then scribble it on the top of a CD (which supposedly contains great tunes from an ‘up and coming’ artist) and then expect you to pay for the privilege…

Anti- Social says:

Also I went to angels flight last month. It was still in operation.
