Where can I find “Old Hollywood” glamour? Hollywood Boulevard should be your first stop. This iconic stretch of road is home to the Walk of Fame, and the El Capitan and Grauman’s Chinese theaters. Stop by the Musso & Frank Grill or the Formosa Cafe, where everyone from Charlie Chaplin to Marilyn Monroe has dined. The Hollywood Museum also has a collection of classic memorabilia — from props and photographs to scripts and vintage costumes.

How can I watch a television show or movie being made? Many sitcoms, game shows and talk shows are taped in front of a live studio audience — if you can plan ahead, advanced tickets are usually free and you can see a full episode of the show, plus you might get a chance to meet the cast. Several local studios also offer “backlot” tours for a fee, which will take you through working sets and soundstages, and often find you watching a scene being shot!
