(Warning: there are going to be A LOT of pictures!)
View of the Hollywood sign from our hotel, The Renaissance Hollywood. We LOVED our hotel. It was overlooking the Chinese Theater and the Walk of Stars, walking distance to Sunset Blvd and only 10 minutes from Beverly Hills.
We took a 3 hour bus tour to see all the celeb homes, places movies were filmed, etc. This was one of the best parts of our trip! You get to see and learn so much in a short amount of time. This is a view of the Celebrity Rehab house from Mulholland Drive. Can you imagine being in rehab and having this pool and view?!
When we got back to our room late that night the nicest concierge in the world, John, had sent this to our room. Somehow he ended up thinking we were on our Honeymoon! Also, when he made our dinner reservations for us at Yamashiro he must have told them it was our Honeymoon because they brought us a free appetizer and said "This is from John, your concierge" He was so sweet! :)
Our first day included a lot of walking around the Chinese Theater, Kodak Theater, Walk of Fame. We ate breakfast at the famous Du-Par's in Studio City and spent 3 hours on one of the bus tours. We had lunch at the Pig-N-Whistle on Hollywood Blvd, took a 3 hour nap then headed out for the night. Day 1 was a blast!! I love Hollywood!! Next up...day 2- The Muppets Movie Premier, lunch at The Ivy, shopping on Melrose Ave and more!
