The Hollywood district of Los Angeles, California is one of the most famous districts in the world. Famed as an American cultural centre due to the enormous range of film studios and film stars’ Hollywood mansions, the area still attracts a vast number of visitors each year. So, why not truly live the film stars dream and stay in your very own private Hollywood mansion during your holiday.
The Hollywood sign is one of the most famous sights in the whole of America. Recognised as a symbol of glamour and wealth, the Hollywood sign still draws a huge amount of interest from visitors arriving from around the world. The Hollywood Walk of Fame is always a huge crowd pleaser, and there are more historic theatres than you could possible explore in a single Hollywood holiday, including Grauman’s Chinese Theatre, Charlie Chaplin Studios, El Capitan Theatre. More modern attractions are just as, if not more popular too, from the Hollywood Bowl to Universal Studios, the Hollywood Wax Museum to Runyon Canyon Park. For something a little more bizarre, a visit to the Ripley’s Believe it or Not Odditorium makes for a sensational day out from your Hollywood mansion, and will leave you talking about it for years to come.
Sunset Boulevard, other wise known as The Strip, is the only place to be once the sun sets behind the Hollywood sign. Lined with the best bars, restaurants, nightclubs and comedy clubs in Hollywood, the Sunset Strip is always a hugely entertaining place to be, offering every sort of nightlife and evening entertainment to an engrossed clientele.
The whole of Los Angeles is at your mercy from a holiday rental home in Hollywood. The rest of the city is well worth exploring, as the attractions are almost endless, from the world famous Pacific beaches around Santa Monica Pier to Disneyworld.
There are over 290 days of glorious sunshine each year in Hollywood, with almost constant sunshine during July and August, the hottest months. Holidays to Hollywood are at their absolute finest between March and November, but conditions are fantastic at any time of year, and during the off-peak season, you may be able to get your Hollywood mansion for off-season prices too.
Although there is a small airport just outside Hollywood, the Bob Hope Airport (BUR), it is a domestic airport and does not receive direct flights from the UK. However, Los Angeles Airport (LAX) is just 20 miles from a holiday rental villa in Hollywood, and receives a great number of British Airways, Virgin Atlantic and Air France flights from the UK. Hollywood is a city of cars, and hire cars are readily available from the airport.
