In Los Angeles we stayed at the Magic Castle Hotel. Our room had quite a few problems, most notably some loud humming machine right outside our window, and the window wouldn’t shut all the way, but the staff and service were really really great, they even had a free mini bar menu, and the location was perfect as well.
The first day after arriving from Disneyland we went on one of those guided bus tours. It’s the first time we’ve done that but it was a great way to see Los Angeles, especially since it ‘s so big and sprawling, and our guide seemed to really know his stuff. One part of the tour was looking at celebrity houses, which I didn’t expect to be very interested in, but driving around Beverly Hills looking at beautiful houses ended up being my favourite part of the tour. Beverly Hills was amazing, it looked completely unreal, and so different from all other places I’ve visited in America. We also saw the Playboy mansion! Or at least glimpsed it, and the house from Fresh Prince of Bel Air :)
After the tour we went to The Hollywood Museum. It’s in the amazing Max Factor building and the Max Factor make up rooms were my very favourite part of the entire trip. It was really the ultimate Hollywood glamour experience for me and I could have stayed there forever. The rest of the museum was great as well.
