Streets, Beats & Eats – Hollywood Posted by on Apr 30, 2015 in Uncategorized

Welcome to Tinseltown.

Welcome to Tinseltown.

Hike up to the Hollywood sign, stroll along the Walk of Fame, check out a few restaurants, and catch some live music on Sunset Strip in this short travel video. Great for ESL students and even for the ESL classroom!

“Start your day at Toast, a great place for brunch. Try an omelette or go healthier with a fresh veggie wrap & sweet potato fries.

Walk off that big meal by taking a hike. Walk through the Bat Cave used in the original Batman TV series, and you’ll see the famous Hollywood sign on the other side. This trail takes you up to the top of the sign, and you can either hike it or even go on horseback. Along the way, enjoy great views of the City of Angels below. Keep going until you get to the top, where you’ll get an awesome panorama.

Back in Hollywood, there’s plenty to do – the wax museum, hard rock cafe, Mann’s chinese theater,  sight seeing bus tours, or just strolling along the Walk of Fame. Follow the stars, and you just might end up at the Blue Palms Brew House in time for Happy Hour.

Pull up a chair and study their extensive beer menu to learn the difference between a lager and an ale… or an IPA and a Hefeweisen. Grab a pint and enjoy it alongside some chicken wings, a massive steak sandwich, or one of their creative burgers, such as the truffle burger.

Another option for dinner is Crazy Rock’n Sushi, an amazing Japanese fusion restaurant. Order up a bottle of sake and dig into some spicy tuna rice cakes, shrimp tempura, or one of their cleverly named rolls, such as the Caterpillar. As you can see, it’s a popular place.

If you wanna rock out, head to Sunset Strip, where you’ll find plenty of music venues, such as: Whiskey a Go Go, the Roxy, and the Viper Room. Grab a drink from the bar, check out the sticker-covered bathroom, and then check out the band.

No trip to LA would be complete without a stop at In n Out burger. Sure, it’s just fast food… but people line up out the door here for the famous burgers and fries. It may not be good for you, but it sure tastes good! You can always start a diet tomorrow…”
