WALKING TOUR OF HOLLYWOOD BOULEVARD!

What was it like to witness Hollywood's transformation from a tiny suburb of Los Angeles to the glamorous film capital of the world?  On this tour, you will learn the history of Hollywood from around 1885-1960, and have a chance to peek inside some of the hidden gems on the boulevard.

Join us to learn the story of how Hollywood transformed from a sleepy little town of orange groves into the center of the world's entertainment industry...in less than 50 years!  Take a walk back in time to visit the homes, shops, theaters, offices and restaurants that define Hollywood's historic identity.

You'll visit the oldest residential home on Hollywood Boulevard, visit a theater that hosted star-studded premieres during Hollywood's golden age, and sip a drink where Charlie Chaplin and Douglas Fairbanks unwound after a long day of filming, and where writers like F. Scott Fitzgerald and Ernest Hemingway wrote classic American novels.

Our destinations include:

  • Hollywood's first and most famous movie theaters
  • The oldest remaining residence on the Boulevard
  • The longest continuously-operating restaurant in Hollywood
  • Architecturally iconic buildings
  • Hollywood's premiere shopping district during its Golden Age

Along the way you'll see how the story of Hollywood is still unfolding as the modern-day artists and creatives continue to reinvent their neighborhood while honoring its storied past.
