To truly feel like you’re in the heart of Los Angeles, grab your family and make tracks to the Hollywood and Highland Center. Located, appropriately enough, at the intersection of Hollywood Boulevard and Highland Avenue, this shopping and entertainment mecca will put stars in your kids’ eyes as they take in all the showbiz icons at once. With a photo opportunity everywhere you turn, your camera’s going to get a serious workout on this family outing. Kneel in front of your favorite artist’s star on the Walk of Fame. Watch your kids flex like superheroes next to Superman. Smile like a screen idol as you sink your palm into Tom Cruise’s handprint at the TCL Chinese Theatre. There’s even a spectacular, unobstructed view of the Hollywood sign awaiting you from atop the mall. After working up a sweat under the warm sun, let the kids cool off in the dancing-water fountains, then surprise them with one-of-a-kind chocolates at Sweet! Hollywood, which lets you make your own candy bars. You can even take a tour of the world-famous Dolby Theatre, home of the annual Academy Awards—Tinseltown’s highest honor. Maybe it’s time to prepare a speech? Surrounded by so much inspiration, it won’t be hard to imagine you’re cradling an Oscar.
