Essential L.A. – This overview of L.A. is loaded with famous sights and includes a peek at world-class shopping on Rodeo Drive and Melrose Avenue, Museum Square’s La Brea Tar Pits and LACMA (L.A. Contemporary Museum of Art), Hollywood’s Paramount Pictures and the eclectic Hollywood Hills with the cities’ most famous landmark: the Hollywood Sign. Stop at The Walk of Fame and Grauman’s Chinese Theater, then cruise down the always hip and happening West Hollywood Sunset Strip. Drive through Beverly Hills 90210, the zip code of the rich and famous, with views of breathtaking celebrity mansions.

Coastal Tour and The Getty Center – Cruise the coast along scenic Highway 1 through Santa Monica, Malibu and Venice beaches. Stroll along the Venice boardwalk, then visit the famed Getty Center for an introduction to this stunning facility. Take a tram ride up a winding Brentwood hill to get an up-close view of this architectural masterpiece. After enjoying the breathtaking gardens, you’ll enter one of the natural-light pavilions to see works by Van Gogh, Renoir, Degas and Monet. (The Getty Center is one stop on the tour. Should you wish to spend more time here, you may want to come back during your trip. Admission is free. Closed on Mondays.)

Other tours available: the history of the legendary studios that put Hollywood on the map, including Paramount, Warner Bros., NBC, Disney, and Universal or “star search”, concentrating on areas with celebrity homes in the Platinum Triangle of Bel Air, Holmby Hills and Beverly Hills.

Surrounded by chic stores and the buzz of Hollywood, The Ivy is a refreshing escape with an inviting garden patio behind a picket fence. The Ivy resembles a cozy French country inn but serves updated regional American classics.
