From the Publisher
This vibrant city and its suburbs have been attracting stars since film was invented, and hundreds have opted to make their homes here. The atmosphere is unique, with the pizazz and glitz of the movie crowd mixed with the quiet elegance of recluses who value their privacy. The strips in town are filled with nonstop music and dance action. In some residential areas, houses are set so far off the street you won’t hear a sound. The authors wrote for TV and films in the studios and know the industry intimately. They both grew up in Hollywood and lived there most of their lives. Join them as they take you through the neighborhoods of the rich and famous and along the ritzy shopping avenues. Visit the studios or hang out at hip bistros and hope to catch a glimpse of a big-name star. Sightseeing is also covered, with trips to the nearby beach towns, west LA, the foothills and Palm Springs.

"The great thing about this book is that it was written by people with an inside view of "The business". Along with the most complete look at Tinsletown they add anecdotes and little known facts that make just reading the book fun.
And this book covers more that downtown, Hollywood and Beverly Hills. It travels north to Santa Barbara and south to Long Beach and Catalina.
If you're headed for LA this is the book to get. Even as a died-in-the-wool Angeleno, I found this book informative, usefull and fun to read." -- Harry Basch, Amazon reviewer

"Here's a 600-page book that's filled to its movie brim, with tons of offbeat things to see and do; bright and breezy in its writing, you'll find facts and other nifty news here about this incredible place called LA and Hollywood that, even if you've lived here all your life (!), you probably never knew existed." -- John Clayton, Travel With a Difference radio show,

"As in all Hunter Guides, this hefty paperback is chock full of information - restaurants and hotels, shopping, daytime and nightime activities, even where to see the stars." -- Anton Community Newspapers

"As a former "angeleno" and film enthusiast, I was amazed at the wealth of information contained in this travel book. I recently visited L.A. and stayed at two of the hotels mentioned, and found the descriptions to be right on the mark. I recommend this book not only to those who are planning a vacation in L.A. but to people who live in L.A. and enjoy watching movies and reading about movie stars." -- Charles Halsey

"I can't imagine what I can add to this well researched volume of Hollywood tidbits.... This book is fun. It reads especially well with a tub of buttery popcorn and a box of Good & Plenty." -- Tippi Hedren, actress

"This is a marvelous book - full of interesting and little-known tidbits about famous people living and dead.... Anyone intersted in visiting Hollywood in the future owes the authors a debt of gratitude." -- Robert Wise, filmmaker

"I am a fifth-generation Angelino, and this is the best, most ocmprehensive book on my town I've ever read, Fabulous for a tourist; some new and some nostalgia for a native. Nothing worth knowing has been left out!" -- Sharon Gless, actress
