Santa Monica Pier

Itching to do some Roga? That’s right, yoga and running combined! Starving? Choose from one of the many delicious restaurants, including the classic Bubba Gump, munch on a Pier Burger, or indulge in a homemade treat from Soda Jerks. There’s always something to do and see at the pier whether it’s the arcade, aquarium, live music, and more!

Hike to the Hollywood Sign

Hike to the HOLLYWOOD sign, or the DOOWYLLOH sign as you’ll see it from the top. Start your hike from one of two favorite spots – the longer loop, Griffith Park, or the shorter loop Griffith Observatory. There are, of course, more difficult loops for people seeking a challenge. All are encompassed by wildlife and views among the wilderness. Visit their website to discover which route may be best for you!

Hollywood Walk of Fame

Walk down Hollywood Boulevard and embark down the sidewalks filled with Stars representing the biggest and brightest talent. Find your favorite celebrities’ names including oldies like Elvis Presley, Lucille Ball, Dick Van Dyke, Frank Sinatra and newbies like Jennifer Garner, Carrie Underwood, Orlando Bloom, Matthew McConaughey, and many more!
