Steeped in history and entertainment, the neighborhood of Hollywood has so much to offer new apartment residents. Popular tourist destinations and hidden gems let you enjoy the best of both worlds. Concert venues and even theme parks are easily accessible from this area of the City of Angels.

For Your Entertainment

The city of L.A. has many popular neighborhoods, but probably it’s most famous is Hollywood. The glitz and glamour of this part of town pairs perfectly with the natural landscapes of SoCal. Just sitting on Hollywood Boulevard are three movie theaters, each famous in their own right: TCL Chinese Theatre, the Egyptian Theatre and El Capitan Theatre. 

Several live music venues also thrive here, but it’s the world-famous Hollywood Bowl that stands out. From philharmonic to rock bands, the Hollywood Bowl has played host to many iconic performances. For a more traditional concert experience, Hollywood Palladium offers an exciting event space that welcomes some favorite musicians. The massive space features an intimate setting that celebrates musicians and accommodates large masses of concert attendees. 

After an evening of excitement, slow down and relax with the beauty of nature and the wonders of science. Griffith Park offers hiking trails with beautiful landscapes. As you make your way through the park and to its peak, the famous Hollywood sign comes into view. The beauty of nature pairs perfectly with the famous sign and provides the perfect Instagram backdrop. At the peak, you’ll notice the Griffith Observatory. Featured in movies such as La La Land, the observatory is a beautiful spectacle of science, architecture and wonder. 

For a day of family fun and excitement, you can head up north of Hollywood and discover Universal Studios Hollywood. Home to your favorite movie characters and a real working film backlot, the park is a great way to escape the day to day and dive into your favorite flicks. 

Shop Like the Stars

In Hollywood, it’s much easier to find the perfect outfit than to spot your favorite celebrity. Blending the lines between art, dining and shopping, Hollywood & Highland is the perfect place to shop in style. This massive shopping area is located just minutes from Hollywood Boulevard and the Hollywood Bowl. Boutique shops and popular brand stores await in this outdoor mall. 

Los Angeles residents love their sunshine. At Beverly Connection, you can shop to your heart’s content in a large outdoor space. A favorite among locals, Beverly Connection provides shoppers with the latest trends and myriad sales. The smart shopper can get a stylish outfit at half the cost and avoid the crowds. If you’re looking for a full day of shopping, visit the Beverly Center. Similar to Hollywood & Highland, this center offers a mix of designer boutiques and brand stores. This indoor shopping facility offers popular options and special events including yoga and guest lectures.
