Park
“Just two blocks from Hollywood Boulevard, Runyon Canyon Park is an often overlooked urban park that offers some great views. Atop the canyon, you can glimpse views of the San Fernando Valley and the Pacific Ocean, as well as the Hollywood Sign and Giffith Observatory. The park also boasts several hiking trails and is a popular spot for celebrities to exercise. Travelers say that the canyon is reminiscent of Old Hollywood with several old mansions and estates scattered throughout the park – keep your eyes peeled as you follow the trail. ”

BBQ Restaurant

“Still within walking distance from the home, this restaurant offers good old American comfort food and beer, a sports bar area with several TV screens, and as the centerpiece features a mechanical bull. My advice, don't ride the bull unless you don't mind getting hurt. I've seen people fly off that thing and land on their face and bust their nose open and bleed all over the place there. I nearly lost my manhood the one time I tried it! Much funner to watch as a spectator especially late at night when the crowd really gets going.”
