Vacation 2.0: Southern California Edition - Day 11

Day 11: September 24, 2014

The last full day in LA before going home...

We woke up early that morning and took the metro to Hollywood & Highland station. We were going on the Movie Stars Homes Tour that day, and after getting our tickets we had a while before the tour departs, so we decided to cross the street to Hollywood & Highland Center to have breakfast.

After breakfast, it was time for souvenir shopping. So we went to a huge souvenirs store next to the shopping center and spent some time buying all sorts of souvenirs...key chains, shot glasses, magnets...

Next, it was time for the tour. We boarded the tour bus and our journey started. We passed by several important landmarks in LA, before going up to the overlook of Hollywood Bowl on Hollywood Hills. The overlook was right on Mulholland Drive, a long dive with beautiful houses. The view from the overlook was breathtaking! You can see Hollywood Bowl and the skyline of downtown LA, as well as celebrity homes of Ben Stiller and Ice T.

We resumed our tour, passing by the homes of famous celebrities such as Bruno Mars, Sylvester Stallone, the house where Michael Jackson died, Elvis Presley, Katy Perry, Hilary Duff, Gwen Stefani...and so many celebrity homes on Mulholland Drive, Beverly Hills and Bel Air. We saw the club where Leonardo Dicaprio sometimes parties, and passed by several celebrity hangouts.

After the tour was over, we went to Universal Studios to ride the remaining 3 rides that we didn't get the chance to do when we visited the park earlier in our vacation. The remaining rides were The Mummy, Jurassic Park and Transformers 3D. We spent the remaining afternoon at the park, taking pictures with various characters and saying goodbye to Universal Studios.

Now, we couldn't exactly leave California before trying its famous burger place...In N Out burger, and luckily, there was one within a 10 minute walk from Universal Studios on Cahuenga Blvd. The place was crowded! Luckily, N and I managed to find an empty table to enjoy our late lunch/early dinner.

Later that evening, we went for one last time to Universal Studios City Walk, walking around, taking pictures and shopping for more souvenirs from the Universal Studios store and more clothes from Abercrombie & Fitch, before enjoying desserts at Hard Rock Cafe.
