Los Angeles for the Entertainment Capital
Among many other institutions that call Los Angeles home, it is also 'home' to Hollywood - the center of the American film industry. It all began in 1910 when film director D.W. Griffith was sent to film in the west coast and discovered the little village of Hollywood. He made several films in Hollywood that year. Many other filmmakers heard about his success in the west, and by 1913 they too headed to Hollywood. From there it continued to grow! Modern Hollywood is booming with production studios like Paramount Pictures and famous landmarks like the Grauman's Chinese Theatre , a movie theatre that first opened back in 1927 and has been home to many movie premieres - occasions where you are sure to find tons of products from movie posters to tee shirts and more. And of course you can find plenty of items that feature your name imprinted inside a Hollywood Walk of Fame star! Many media and entertainment companies are also headquartered in nearby Burbank, California on the eastern end of the San Fernando Valley.
Los Angeles: from Hollywood to Sunset
Extending from West Hollywood's eastern border is the famous Sunset Strip - a mile and a half stretch of Sunset Boulevard that features a collection of boutiques, restaurants, nightclubs, and hotels. Aside from these attractions, the Sunset Strip is actually known as a center for advertising, as it hosts huge, colorful billboards along the entire strip; custom products advertising the restaurants, bars and clubs are popular novelty items for out-of-towners. The large number of billboards began during the 1960s and is said to have developed partly due to the location of the Sunset Strip as a major path of travel between Hollywood and surrounding areas like Beverly Hills with populations of affluent residents. Many celebrities live in the area too, especially in the nearby Hollywood Hills and Laurel Canyon.
Los Angeles Along the Coast
How could one write anything about Los Angeles without mentioning the beach? As much of an icon as the Hollywood sign or the Sunset Strip is Los Angeles' beaches like Venice Beach. Its lively sidewalk scene is one of the main attractions other than the Pacific Ocean water itself. Venice Beach is a place where you can find artists, palm readers and bikini-clad roller skaters among the beachfront beauties. You can also pick up plenty of souvenires at the famed amusement park on the pier at the Santa Monica Beach. If surfing is your thing, you might want to head to Zuma Beach in nearby Malibu.
