Grauman’s Chinese Theater

Rumor has it, it was once stated that “To visit Los Angeles and not see the Chinese is like visiting China and not seeing the Great Wall.” Grauman Theater’s awe-inspiring, palatial  presence and flamboyant history has been a cornerstone of old Hollywood since its spectacular grand opening in May of 1927. The most sought-after venue in all of Tinseltown for studio premieres, the magnificent Chinese is also a beloved local and star tourist attraction: declared a cultural-historic landmark in 1968, more than four million visitors per year flock to the ornate movie palace’s events, hoping to catch a glimpse of arriving celebrities gliding up the red carpet and into the theater. Rising 90 feet high, the red-columned, Green dragon-and-Heaven dog-guarded theater is adorned with all manner of lavish and authentic  Chinese artifacts and statuary. The elaborate forecourt of the stars, surrounded by 40 foot walls and copper-topped turrets, a fabulous tribute to the Golden Age of Hollywood and  icons of today, and days gone by—boasts glamorous ten foot, lotus-shaped fountains and intricate Chinese artistry bordering concrete blocks of celebrity handprints, footprints and signatures and welcomes star-struck guests of the opulent theater inside the wonderful world of Hollywood romance, fantasy and magic. The Chinese is not only a grand stage for glamorous affairs but an actual working theater with regular shows scheduled daily, a fabulous concession with the best popcorn and interior rivalling the outside in grandeur!

Santa Monica Pier

Credit: Discover Los Angeles

The original 1600 foot structure was completed in 1909- to hide a monstrous sewage pipeline! The Pier became a fast favorite with the local fishing community, men, women and children of all ages from all walks, who found plenty of elbow room and an ample catch; the local waters were full of giant Black Sea Bass and the stories flew. Eventually a small menagerie of midway amusements including a hand-carved 44 horse carousel found home on a second, wider pier, adjacent to Santa Monica; Looff Pleasure Pier was born, and soon became a popular attraction to the area. In 1909, the original pier collapsed; the insidious culprit? Rust! Reconstruction, changes of hands…tides in, tides out-1924 saw the grand debut of the magnificent La Monica Ballroom, headlined as “A Castle Floating over the Ocean;” for a short turn, it was the place to see and be seen-the hottest ticket in town. With the advent of the Great Depression, the luxurious ballroom fell into tragic decline, and was repurposed several times-at one point used as a county jail. Today, Pacific Park amusements and Playland Arcade , hidden gem Santa Monica Pier Aquarium, wonderful fresh seafood eateries, whimsical snack shacks and retro soda fountains like Bubba Gumps Shrimp Co., Soda Jerks and Pier Burger, and a boatload of wonderful storefronts including a first-rate bait and tackle shop, make the Pier a top-notch attraction, affording locals and travelers alike a fine time at the Santa Monica shore. Today, Santa Monica Pier, with its colorful history amidst constant change and the inevitable ravages of time and the elements stands revitalized and proud, a constant reminder of a resilient community spirit. The original carousel is back in action, and the fishing’s fine as it was in 1909!

Catalina Island

This lush, rocky little paradise with a manifestly Mediterranean charm lies just off the sunny California Coast about 22 miles South-Southwest of Los Angeles. 22 miles long and 8 miles across at its greatest width, it was originally settled by indigenous peoples. Over the years the island saw use as a smuggling center, a trading post, prime ranch land, gold mining destination and otter hunting ground before successful development into a tourist destination by chewing gum tycoon William Wrigley . Catalina’s entire population barely exceeds 4000, most of whom occupy the only incorporated city, Avalon, with the rest living in unincorporated Two Harbors; almost everyone tools around via golf cart as the use of motor vehicles is restricted. This breathtaking little Island in the Pacific is home to no less than 50 carefully protected endemic species occurring there and nowhere else in the world; conservation is a way of life on this popular tourist retreat. In addition to the true natives, a small herd of 150 or American bison, descendants of 14 brought over from the mainland for film production and left behind due to budgetary constraints flourish amongst other non-native species like mule deer, bullfrogs, feral cats and common starlings. The deep, blue waters surrounding the island are alive with schools of fish like California sheephead, garibaldi, leopard sharks, white sea bass, yellowtail, bat rays, and Giant black sea bass; Great White sharks are also known to haunt the local waters. Pacific haven Catalina Island offers groups on Southern California holiday a fine selection of wonderful accommodations, from beach-front hotels and charming huts to well-appointed condos and a four-star country inn; dozens of casual-to-elegant eateries and restaurants promise something for every palate. Scores of fabulous sea, land and air activities like parasailing, paddle boarding, scuba diving and snorkeling, fishing, scavenger hunts, lavish spa days, kayaking, zip-lining and glass-bottomed boat tours afford adventurous travel groups a wonderfully diverse escape from the Mainland, all just a stone’s throw from the hustle and bustle of LA. Catalina comes alive after dark- Summer concerts, miniature golf gardens, Night Zip Eco Tours and the Summit Night Adventure, Flying Fish Boat Tours , the Avalon Theater and a vibrant Island social scene all entertain through the wee hours.

Belmont Park

This historic seaside amusement park with a nostalgic beach boardwalk/midway vibe located in the Mission Bay area of sunny San Diego saw its debut in 1925; two of its original rides continue to operate: the Giant Dipper, a classic wooden roller coaster and “The Plunge,” Southern California’s largest indoor swimming pool that actually contained salt water back in the day! Modern attractions Flow Rider and Flow Barrel recreate totally awesome surfing conditions; Sky Climb, a 30 foot rock wall course encourages climbers of all abilities to stretch their limbs and test their skills. Take the Vertical Plunge, conquer the Control Freak and customize your own dizzying “spin” on Octotron; classic amusements like the Libery Carousel, Tilt-a-Whirl and Speedway Bumper Cars tickle your taste for retro fun! Tiki Town Adventure Golf invites the pros among you to hone their skills; Sky Ropes – a swinging obstacle course challenge through the tops of towering palm trees is definitely not for the shrinking violet. The better-than-ever arcade invites you to get your game on while familiar midway challenges with all the traditional trappings taunt you to step right up and test your skills. Plenty of good ol’ amusement park fare-fresh-squeezed lemonade and killer corndogs, the best funnel cakes around, hand-dipped caramel apples and homemade fudge, succulent rooftop sushi and quintessentially classic café and grill menus ensure your gregarious group on Southern California excursion a well-fueled Belmont Park playdate!

La Brea Tar Pits

Situated within what was once the Mexican Land Grant of Rancho La Brea, and now part of Urban Los Angeles in the Miracle Mile District, the La Brea Tar Pits and C. George Page Museum in Hancock Park offer a fascinating detour from the typical tourist fare-fascinating attractions that should find their way onto every closet Paleontologist’s must-see agenda. It’s likely you’ve heard of the Tar Pits somewhere in your studies…3rd grade, perhaps? Most of us have inadvertently stepped onto a deceptive splotch of fresh roofing tar or spot of hot, new asphalt on a scorching Summer’s day and been frustrated by the substance’s transferal -and persistence- on a favorite shoe. Now…imagine, if you will, a hungry pack of fearless Dire Wolves ripping through the grasslands, hot on the trail of a single, startled young deer…racing to flank their intended prey, a favorite feast on the night’s menu. The pack pulls up short when the Alpha male nearly vanishes from view; a second wolf stumbles face-first into the muck, and flailing, starts to go under ; fierce growls and blood-chilling howls turned to panicked staccato barks and a few terrified screams as the beasts struggle and slip rather quickly beneath the surface of the debris- covered dark pool. The deer escapes; the rest of the pack backs slowly away from the bubbling pit ahead only to meet the same demise a few yards away from the mysterious blackness that devoured the first two hunters…and so it went. Today, as the ever-changing La Brea Tar Pits are excavated, similar horrifyingly fascinating stories are imagined in the minds of Paleontologists and their fervent volunteers mining the asphalt pits of their hapless victims, and retold time and again through careful reconstructions of these fine specimens displayed at Page Museum.

Happily sprawled over the site of a sunny Buena Park berry farm once owned by founder Walter Knott and his family, this 160 acre attraction with a distinctly  Wild-Western flavor is now one of America’s most visited theme parks! What began in the 20′s as a roadside farmstand, selling wonderful homemade jams, preserves and boysenberry pies later grew to include a down-home fried chicken and biscuit dinner served in a small tea house. As the Knotts expanded their horizons, new shops and attractions sprang up all over the property- a spooky replica ghost town among them. By 1968 the family began charging eager visitors admission to “Knott’s Berry Farm”-and America’s first family theme park was born! Open year-round and featuring scores of attractions including family-friendly, vibrantly colorful live entertainment like The Calico Saloon Show at Ghost Town, Native American Dancers on Indian Trails, and Fool’s Gold Stunt Show at Wagon Camp, and a total of 40 mild-to-wild rides- ten roller coasters among them-a visit to Knott’s Berry Farm has always promised a great time for everyone-even John Wayne, who took the inaugural seat on the Timber Mountain Log Ride’s opening day in 1969! (To this day it remains one of the most elaborate log flume attractions in the Country!) Hop aboard the Silver Bullet, brave The Ghostrider, grab your seat on The Sierra Sidewinder or try your luck on the Timberline Twister! History buffs in your group-there are always a few-will want to travel back in time to witness the signing of the Declaration of Independence at Knott’s own Independence Hall, an identical replica of the iconic historic landmark, right down to its perfectly-cracked, full-sized Liberty Bell, or watch a skilled Ghost Town wood artist painstakingly restoring the park’s unbelievable hand-carved model display of the 21 Historic California Missions. Your group is sure to delight in the dozens of exciting Camp, Marketplace, Village and Boardwalk dining and shopping opportunities –a veritable piñata of pleasurable possibility- in this “First American Theme Park!” An afternoon’s prospecting and playing will  work up a hearty appetite, so go ahead and dig into Mrs. Knott’s homestyle fried chicken and biscuit dinner, but be sure to save room for a big piece of that famous fresh-baked  boysenberry pie!

Located on fabulous Hollywood Boulevard, in the shadow of the iconic Hollywood sign and along the legendary Walk of Fame, this longest-running wax museum in the United States opened on bustling Hollywood Boulevard February 6, 1965 in a historic building that once housed the famed Embassy Club, host to ultra-exclusive, star-studded gatherings of Old Hollywood’s top 300 celebrities and industry executives.  Launched with entrepreneur Spoony  Singh’s vision of bringing doting  fans closer to their big-screen idols, the Hollywood Wax Museum, the only wax museum in the country to feature celebrities exclusively, has been treating star-struck travelers to dazzling Tinseltown to an incredible meet and mingle with their favorite stars for the past 45 years.

Legoland

There are plenty of kids around 5 or 6 who consider this their favorite theme park. And, for the first hour or so, anybody would be fascinated by the fact that virtually everything here is built from Legos. But once it sinks in that grown men and women spent countless hours making this world out of small plastic bricks, everything starts to seem downright creepy. There is a children’s driving school that is not only fun for the kiddies, it’s hilarious for adults to watch their offspring run though traffic lights and hit other cars. It’s like watching an episode of World’s Best Car Chases. Sequestered away in Carlsbad (a 45 minute drive from L.A.) near an Ostrich farm, this is definitely a unique experience – especially for anyone still using a sipper cup.

Griffith Park

Affluent mining speculator and founder Griffith J. Griffith stated, with his generous endowment of over 3000 prime Los Angeles acres toward realization of his proposed establishment of a premier Los Angeles park and observatory : “It must be made a place of rest and relaxation for the masses, a resort for the rank and file, for the plain people.” He believed an individual gained an enlightened perspective when viewing the endless skies through a magnificent telescope and such a fine opportunity made accessible to the public would surely “revise man’s sense of values.” Today, Griffith Observatory is an LA icon; a national leader in public astronomy, a beloved public gathering place and one of Southern California’s most popular attractions. Oschin Planetarium’s state of the art sky shows, a variety of breathtaking viewing options, a fabulous display of immersive exhibits and architectural features like the awe-inspiring Gottleib Transit Corridor, a 150 foot long glass tunnel that sweeps viewers into the transit of the sun, moon and stars across the night sky- treat visitors to Griffith Park to no less than a stellar experience!
