Okay, this place is simply magical. I've been four times and yes, two of those times I was an adult. I don't care, it was so much fun. Last time was the first time I was there during new year's. Christmas decorations were still up and the fireworks show when midnight struck was so incredible!! I..will..be..going..back..
Hollywood - Of course you fake it, until you make it. But there's a misconception in being "fake" (no integrity) and those who are taking on their vision/dream in order to make it. There is a very huge distinction.
I only spent a few hours in L.A. Within those few hours, we hiked up to the Hollywood sign (a nice hike! Better than expected!), got picked up by a writer for the T.V. show Jackass and taken back to our car and tested by scientologists on the streets. Of course, we also tried out the hand and footprints on the streets.
