Dream of a house in Hollywood Hills, one of the most beautiful neighborhoods to see in Los Angeles

To get to the Hollywood sign you will have to go through this spectacular residential area. Without any doubt, it is the area that we liked the most in the city to live in. For you to have a reference, Ben Affleck, Denzel Washington or Justin Timberlake have a house there. Let's see if you cross them! You can try it by doing a tour in Spanish through Hollywood, Mullholland and the homes of celebrities.

We were struck to see that there were “Armed response” signs in the house, that is, they protect themselves with weapons against theft. That in Spain is unthinkable.

Spend a fun day at Universal Studios Hollywood

Another of the funniest things to do in Los Angeles is to visit Universal Studios Hollywood. Going to such a park is synonymous with having a good time. Although the one in Hollywood is smaller than the one in Orlando, it's super good. There you can see how the scenarios of a movie studio are or try the biggest 3D attraction on the planet facing you face to face with King Kong, among many other things.

Enjoy a sunset at the Griffith Observatory

This observatory is the best viewpoint in Los Angeles, without any doubt. Enjoying a sunset from that point with unbeatable views of the city is an unforgettable experience. In addition, entry into the building is free. There you will discover many things about astronomy.

To place the icing on the cake, fall in love with space through the Zeiss refracted telescope in the observatory. Open every night from 7 PM. If you go by car, arrive a couple of hours before because it is very difficult to find parking. But it is best to go Saturday or Sunday because there is a bus service that connects the building with the city.
