Visit the Friendly Cities of L.A. and Beverly Hills

Visit the friendly cities of L.A. and Beverly Hills! Certainly, this has been one of the oddest summer holiday travel seasons on record for Los Angeles.  We’ve been in the business as Glitterati Tours for just over a decade, and in the industry for closer to 20 years.  Not since the early 90’s with the riots in L.A., the much-televised O.J. Simpson trial, and the Northridge earthquake, have we seen such an impact on tourism in the city. Normally, we’d be sold out every single day during July and August, however, this 2019 is very hit and miss.  Some days tours trickle in, and other days we turn down about a dozen tours. We’ve heard from hotels, car rental companies, and

Escape the Night on YouTube

Chances are if you or someone in your family (we see you Gen Z) is a YouTuber fanatic you’ve probably heard of Joey Graceffa’s “Escape the Night” on YouTube’s premium.   The show just wrapped up its 4th season, making it the longest running show on the streaming platform – and for good reason. It’s a hit!  The show combines reality and surreality as Joey hosts top YouTubers on a fantasy adventure… Imagine the most elaborate escape room, and then imagine it ten times crazier, bigger, and add in some life or death drama to really spice it up. Don’t worry. Remember it’s “surreality” so no YouTuber is harmed in real life. But you can see some of the most

This popular brunch item, or snack on the go has had some creative variations in this city, but no one is nailing it quite as well as they do at Bluestone Lane. Bluestone Lane Coffee in Los Angeles is an Aussie owned coffee chain that has grown exponentially in the last year. With locations in the Valley, Weho, Mid City, and even on the West Side, there is always a shop nearby with great coffee, and great food. Their menu is filled with variations on what I find to be their specialty – toast!  From your classic peanut butter and jelly,

CicLAvia Meet The Hollywoods

Los Angeles is incredible with its hustle and bustle. While this is great for pumping out entertainment, often times the traffic it brings is not. Try driving around anytime between 7 to 9 in the morning and 5 to 7 in the evening. It gets crazy but you can’t beat the city so we all seem to put up with it. While Metro stations are popping up and being built to hopefully improve the traffic flow, they are doing some great events for the community in the meantime, and on August 18th you can enjoy one! CivLAvia is an event in partnership with Metro that gets the cars off the streets and people walking around exploring. CivLAvia Meet The Hollywoods
