Tinseltown. Motion Picture Metropolis. With nicknames like these, Hollywood has become known around the world for its actors, the silver screen and luxury living. But there's more to Hollywood than iconic imagery and star gazing that is associated with the Los Angeles area. It's a fun and adventurous place for a family to live in a home for rent.
One of the wonders of Hollywood is how it lights up at night, both the city and sky. You'll enjoy a great view by looking down at it all from the Griffith Observatory. Portable telescopes are usually set up around the Observatory, enabling visitors and residents of Hollywood to look down on the thousands of homes and other structures. But if you want to do some real star gazing -- not of movie stars, but actual stars -- look no further than the Observatory's Zeiss telescope. Serving the star-gazing public since 1935, its believed to be the most peered-through telescope in the entire world.
Aesthetics aside, Hollywood is also known for its fine dining and cuisine. One of the more well-known and highly traveled haunts is the Snow White Cafe, which is believed to have been started by Walt Disney himself. Since its humble beginnings as a cafe in 1946, it has grown into a one-size-fits-all restaurant that Hollywood residents have come to rely on for breakfast, lunch and dinner.
And then there's the nightlife that Hollywood is known for. From The Viper Room to The House of Blues, The Troubadour to The Roxy Theatre, dozens of nightclubs dot the Hollywood landscape, giving Hollywood residents a getaway from the kids that's still close to home.
