Beverly Hills and Los Angeles Hotels

It’s never too early to book your Beverly Hills and Los Angeles hotels for the upcoming holidays.  Hotels…as well as studio tours, restaurants, private sightseeing tours, museums, etc…will surely book up during late December and early January.  This can be especially true depending on the two teams that will be playing The Rose Bowl Game in Pasadena on New Years Day.  A few years back, we had Texas vs. Alabama, and the city was full to capacity with red and orange jerseys. Los Angeles is huge, so how do you pick your hotel?  Look at your itinerary and see what your goals are during your stay.  Some guests are literally just in and out of town for a convention or

Visit Los Angeles and Enjoy Diversity

If you’re an international guest planning a trip to America, keep your plans. Yes, social media and news networks are painting our entire country as chaos in the streets.  Like anywhere else in the world, you’ll find a handful of really bad eggs whose goal is to cause disruption and spread hatred.  As most returning visitors from the states will tell you, America is a very friendly country with lots of really kind folks. Los Angeles is a perfect example.  We are a true melting pot of diverse communities within a few dozen square miles. Little Armenia, Chinatown, Korea Town, the heavy populated Jewish communities of Pico and Hancock Park, Little Tokyo, the Persian community of Beverly Hills, Little Ethiopia, gay-friendly and

Arrive Hotel Palm Springs

The tagline for Arrive Hotel Palm Springs is, “A Neighborhood Hotel.” It’s so true.  We’ve done a post on Arrive before, but wanted to update a new one.  First off, it’s one of our favorite getaways, and they’ve had some recent updates to their venue. The desert community of Palm Springs is about a 2-hour drive from the general Hollywood or Beverly Hills area. It’s always been the perfect weekend trip or 2nd home for celebrities escaping the city-life of Los Angeles.  So much so, that there’s even celebrity homes tours there, much like we’ve got here in Beverly Hills with Glitterati Tours. When we can, we head to Arrive Hotel Palm Springs for some much needed R & R.  Even if

West Hollywood Halloween Carnaval 2018

Since 1987, the West Hollywood Carnaval has been the culmination of the many Halloween festivities throughout the month of October.  After all, it attracts hundreds of thousands of festive attendees every Halloween night year after year, and that number continues to grow annually. The carnaval or “parade” takes place on Wednesday, October 31st between 6PM-11PM along Santa Monica Blvd.  This one-mile road closure stretches between La Cienega Boulevard on the east and Doheny Drive on the west. This is an adult only party.  Some of the costumes may be too risqué or show too much skin for young eyes.  Plus, there’s areas that bottleneck with foot traffic where you are shoulder to shoulder with people and barely inching along.  It’s not

Heritage Square Museum Halloween

Los Angeles may be the hub of the entertainment world and one of the newest cities in America, but we still have plenty of history to share! Just north of Dodger Stadium and Downtown Los Angeles sits the Heritage Square Museum — a living history museum highlighting life in Southern California in its first 100 years as a state. The property has plenty to see with actual structures from the Victorian era that have been saved, preserved, and moved to the location. The structures offer up a picturesque 1800’s town just 2 miles away from the skyscrapers of Downtown Los Angeles. Living museum, you ask?  Yes!  The museum staff are working, acting, and living as if they were back at

Knott’s Scary Farm in Buena Park

Knott’s Berry Farm is a living legend here in the Los Angeles area, going strong as one of the most popular destinations since 1920.  Usually known year-round for their thrill rides, stage shows, boysenberries and chicken dinners—it all changes come mid-September through Halloween! For decades, the farm has transformed itself this time of year to Knott’s Scary Farm. Many of us can remember back to the 80’s (they started their Halloween nights as early as ’73) when the park decked itself out in spooky themes. I actually took a mutual friend visiting from Sweden to Knott’s.  She had no idea about our Halloween festivities here in the states, or even scary movies.  She was frozen in fear.  Again, it was the
