The Capitol Records Tower, located in the Hollywood Boulevard commercial and entertainment district on Vine Street, was built in 1956, and is considered one of the city's historic landmarks.
Hollywood Walk of Fame
The Hollywood Walk of Fame, located near the Kodak Theatre, consists of more then 2,000 celebrity permanent public monuments (stars) on more than 15 blocks of Hollywood Boulevard and Vine Street.
The Viper Room
The always-popular Viper Room nightclub on Sunset Strip, which opened in 1993, was once partly owned by Johnny Depp, and is infamous for the drug-related death of actor River Phoenix.
Located in the Hollywood and Highland Center shopping mall and entertainment complex on Hollywood Boulevard and North Highland Avenue, the Kodak Theatre was built in 2001 and is the first permanent home of the Academy Awards.
The iconic Hollywood Sign, which is about 45 feet high and 350 feet wide, was created in 1923.
Modeled after a French chateau in France's Loire Valley, the Chateau Marmont was built in 1927. Chateau Marmont has been referenced in songs, seen on album covers and has been a high-end place to crash for some of the biggest celebrity party animals.
Grauman's Chinese Theatre
Located on the historic Hollywood Walk of Fame, Grauman's Chinese Theatre has played host to many of the biggest movie premieres.

Quite possibly the most revered "blonde" in history, Marilyn Monroe left her handprints in cement at Grauman's Chinese Theatre after the release of her movie Gentleman Prefer Blondes in 1953.
Seating almost 18,000 people, the Hollywood Bowl is the largest natural amphitheater in the US, and is set against the backdrop of the Hollywood Hills.

Founded in 1912, Paramount Studios on Melrose Avenue is America's oldest existing film studio and the only remaining major film studio in Hollywood.
The Hollywood Forever Cemetery located on Santa Monica Boulevard is the final resting place for some of Hollywood's most talented. It was founded in 1899 and, on the verge of bankruptcy in 1998, was bought, restored and refurbished by Tyler Cassity of Forever Enterprises. It is still active today.
The Beverly Hills Hotel
Referred to by some as just "The Hotel," the Beverly Hills Hotel opened in 1912 as the first building in the greater area, and is partly responsible for the creation of the surrounding city of Beverly Hills.
Mammoth Tragedy at La Brea Tar Pits
While excavating in the La Brea Tar Pits in order to build an underground parking garage for the Los Angeles County Museum of Art next door, a nearly intact woolly mammoth skeleton was discovered. It is now on display at George C. Page Museum on Wilshire Boulevard.
