To many, Hollywood Boulevard is nothing but a tourist trap trading on its glory days during the Golden Age of Cinema. But there are secrets here, for those who go looking, and sometimes the dustiest rooms – and grittiest streets – yield the most fascinating treasures.
The stories on this Hollywood walking tour will lead you back to the beginnings of this neighbourhood. We’ll seek out rock legends, the perfect martini, and the best place to enjoy it. There’s a museum with a strange connection to the guillotines of the French Revolution along the way, and a certain hotel where you might hear the sounds of a trumpet – even when nobody is playing. Nobody you can see, that is.
