Shopping Centre
“This is one of the places that you must visit in LA. It's a section in the west Hollywood area with famous landmarks, restaurants, and bars. One of the landmarks that you cannot miss is the Kodak theater where the annual academy awards is held. There is also the Grauman main Chinese theater, which is a historical landmark in LA. In front of this theater, you can see famous actors & actresses hand imprint on the ground with their autographs. Another landmark that you don't want to miss is the Roosevelt Hollywood hotel. A very historical hotel where Marilyn Monroe and Shirley Temple used to stay regularly”
