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

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

MedMen in Los Angeles

It’s no secret that cannabis is now a huge industry in the state of California. With its legalization last year more shops have been popping up all over the state and especially in the City of Los Angeles. Cannabis isn’t just about getting a high anymore, with most of the products sold focusing on CBD, the non-euphoric element in a cannabis plant, and its healing properties. From headaches, sore muscles, anxiety, and even some digestive system issues CBD has become known as a great all-natural pain reliever. Being in a state with no stress on legalization and laws you may find yourself wanting to see if it is a good switch from the more widely known alternatives such as acetaminophen

Malibu Creek State Park

When most people think of Los Angeles they think of lights, movies, and everything else that comes with an urban setting. While this is true with all of our studios and famous hotels around the city, people often forget that just steps away from (and even within) the city we have great spots to enjoy the outdoors. No, we’re not talking poolside or even the beaches. Think forests, hiking trails, lakes, and even a great spot for a quick swim and mini cliff dive in the afternoon. One of these great spots is just outside of the city at Malibu Creek State Park. You’ll forget you are in a coastal state and slip into a peaceful setting perfect for an

See a Dodgers Game When in Los Angeles

You can’t get more American then heading to a baseball game during the summer. Lucky for us in Los Angeles, our team is at the top of their game. We’ve just passed the halfway mark of the season, and the Dodgers are currently the number one team in baseball. With the team looking strong to make their third year in a row World Series appearance, there is no better time to catch a game. Dodger stadium (might we brag — it’s one of the few fields still named for their team and not a corporate sponsor) makes for a great afternoon or evening for anyone. Even if you aren’t the biggest fan of baseball, this American pastime is really just

Where Are The Earthquakes in California?

Where are the earthquakes in California? The recent sizable earthquakes California has experienced have been centered in an area around Ridgecrest.  Ridgecrest is just south of Death Valley National Park, and its nearest large cities include Bakersfield on the east and Las Vegas on the west. We’ve had quite a few inquires from guests wondering how Los Angeles is doing during all of this seismic activity?  We’re perfectly fine.  Ridgecrest is 145 miles north of Hollywood and Beverly Hills, or 2 hours and 15 minutes away by vehicle.  Yes, we’ve definitely felt the rolling motion around Los Angeles from these quakes, both no real damage, other than those with rattled nerves. Earthquakes are a fact of life here in California.
