Los Angeles, in California, is the capital of cool. It is the city to visit if you
are into stargazing - be it the Hollywood brigade shopping at Rodeo Drive, or the
astronomical galaxy at the Griffith Observatory. Also, the view of the ‘Hollywood’
sign from the Griffith Observatory will stay with you forever. Visit the Santa
Monica Beach with your family, for a day in the sun. The Santa Monica Pier marks one
end of Route 66, one of the first highways of the United States. The other end was
originally at Chicago, Illinois! When in Los Angeles, stroll down the Hollywood Walk
of Fame and see the Chinese Theater. The handprints of Hollywood stars in front of
it, are thrilling for the movie buff. Beverly Hills, Universal Studios Hollywood,
Malibu and Long Beach are other top draws.
For experiencing real Los Angeles, head to Silver Lake. Set on Sunset Avenue between
Virgil Avenue and Alvarado Street, this neighbourhood was the site of gang-wars in
the past. Today, it is lined with cool cafes and thrift shops. You are more likely
to spot a celebrity here than in Hollywood!
