From tour buses promising to take you to where the celebrities live to aspiring artists trying to sell you their latest album, Hollywood, California, is a unique and unforgettable tourist hot-spot just 6 miles away from the center of Los Angeles. Known worldwide as the center of the entertainment industry, Hollywood is where you can see movie premieres, eat incredibly tasty hot dogs, and snap photos of that picture-perfect sign. It's also a great place to see live music and, if that's your thing, the hotels near the Hollywood Palladium are where you'll want to be.
Built in 1940, the Hollywood Palladium on Sunset Boulevard has long been a venue for up-and-coming musicians as well as established rock and pop artists. Today, you can hear everything from DJ performances and hip-hop shows to reggae jam sessions and folk concerts inside this Art Deco style theater that holds nearly 4,000. As you groove to the music at this venue, you'll certainly be having a good time. That may make you want to crash at one of the hotels close to Hollywood Palladium afterwards, and that's perfectly fine, but do realize there's plenty to do nearby as well.
If you need some fresh air the night after the concert, drive 4 miles to Griffith Park, which is one of America's largest urban green spaces. Griffith Observatory, which features the world's most widely used telescope, is also within the park's grounds. World-famous Hollywood Boulevard—known for its Walk of Fame, array of quirky museums, and famous cinemas—is just over a half-mile away, and you'll find some of the more historic hotels in Hollywood here.
Every vacation to Hollywood could involve seeing a star or two, and it certainly involves having a blast and creating memories.
