Feb 28, 2013 - Lovely Los Angeles

Charter bus tourists visit Los Angeles all year round, and with good reason.  Los Angeles, as the country's second-largest city, has enough sights, attractions and activities to keep a charter bus visitor busy for weeks. Miles of sandy beaches, Hollywood, trendy boutiques, Rodeo Drive, world-class restaurants and one of the biggest parks of any city in the country are just some of the reasons tourism is one of L.A.'s top industries, and are best visited with a bus, charter bus, coach bus, party bus, mini bus, passenger coach or school bus chartered from Bus Charters Los Angeles.

Glamorous Hollywood, the birthplace of the movie industry, is a must-see destination on any Los Angeles vacation. Take a charter bus tour to the Hollywood sign for a few photo opportunities, and check out the Hollywood Hills and Beverly Hills mansions that are home to the stars, past and present.  Stroll along the Hollywood Walk of Fame, being sure to stop at the Egyptian and Chinese theaters, where many a classic film had its premiere.  Charter bus visitors can eat at the Musso and Frank Grill, where waiters over the years have served everyone from Mary Pickford and Greta Garbo to Frank Sinatra and writer Charles Bukowski, pay a charter bus visit to the Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel, where the very first Academy Awards ceremony took place. And stop your charter bus at the Hollywood Wax Museum, where a walk through the Chamber of Horrors, where you'll encounter all the famous movie villains, from Frankenstein to Jason, alone is worth the price of admission.

At 4,210 acres, Griffith Park is one of the largest urban parks in the country.  Located a short charter bus ride away in the eastern end of the Santa Monica Mountains in the neighborhood of Los Feliz, Griffith Park has large areas of natural, rugged, unspoiled beauty.  The park is the home of the famed Griffith Observatory, one of the leading public observatories in the country with a number of astronomical exhibits as well as a planetarium, and featured as a backdrop in many Hollywood movies, including “Rebel without a cause” and “Transformers”.  While visiting Griffith Park charter bus visitors can also drop in at the Los Angeles Zoo, the Los Angeles Equestrian Center, or take a ride on a merry-go-round and a miniature railroad.

For all that is chic and up to date in fashion trends, charter bus visitors should take a stroll down the main shopping street in ritzy Beverly Hills for a quick lesson in what opulence and excess is all about. The world famous Rodeo Drive is home to some of the priciest, most elegant shops in the country, including designer boutiques such as Brooks Brothers, bebe, Christian Dior, Chanel and Bulgari.  Each Christmas the drive is beautifully decked out for the holidays, with Christmas trees on the median and piped-in Christmas tunes filling the sidewalks, making it worth taking your charter bus for a drive down the Drive.
