The entertainment capital in the word, Hollywood, is a neighbourhood of the city of Los Angeles, but its fame is as big as its sign. The core of this district is composed by three streets: Sunset Boulevard, with a good nightlife, Hollywood Boulevard, for the history, and Melrose Avenue, for shopping.
A good place to start your journey is the most known sign in the world, the Hollywood landmark. Each letter is 45 feet tall, so it is easy to spot up the Mount Lee in Griffith Park, but you won't be allowed to climb up to the landmark. You can take a picture of the sign in the Griffith Observatory, one of the most famous tourist attractions, which offers array of space and science-related displays
The Hollywood Wax Museum displays about 180 celebrities wax statues, including Marilyn Monroe, Charlie Chaplin, Johnny Depp, Angelina Jolie and others, but the museum's figures change regularly. They also have a Chamber of Horrors, featuring classic and current movie monsters.
In the most famous movie theatre in the world, the Grauman's Chinese Theatre, house of many Hollywood film's premieres, there are many footprints, handprints and autographs of celebrities.
