More Hollywood...

If you like movies, make sure you plan to visit Hollywood museum in old Max Factor building. It's a historic place with Old Hollywood glam. They have a floor devoted to Marilyn Monroe and even the "Blonde's Room" :) Did you know she was lifting weights too?!


This place is a gem for "old Hollywood"movie fans with great costumes and effects.  Packed with movie and TV memorabilia will literally blow you away! It was cool to see the robe and boxing gloves from the Rocky :)
 .

My favorite part was the dungeon on the lower floor dedicated to the horror movies. They even have the jail cell from Silence of the Lambs !
And the last stop was just next door at Mel's Diner :D Recommended!

Hollywood

I finally did few "obligatory tourist stops" during my trip to LA like Walk of Fame and Chinese Theatre - Hollywood Hand & Footprints.

The Hollywood Walk of Fame is one of those iconic places that you have to tick off and  take pictures of your favorite fans and Hollywood Hand &Footprints with older signatures and hand-prints in the cement you really feel the past history of the place. Very cool :) 

At Griffin observatory with incredible panoramic views of the LA I was able to see the famous Hollywood sign though it's a considerable distance away. There is a museum with best space science and statues of great physicists you can take photo with :)

California Piers

Park Semper Fi is a Marine Monument in San Clemente on the side of a hill with a great view of San Clemente Pier and the ocean.



 

The Pier at Oceanside it's a genuine old seaside pier which goes long into the ocean allowing you to view fishermen and surfers trying to catch a wave. I had a close up encounter with pelican too :) 
And after beautiful sunset on the beach here is my first fish and chips!
