Sightseeing Los Angeles on a Budget

When traveling, it is always best to budget everything so that you have enough cash for unexpected events. Whether you want souvenirs or need a new tire on your car, there is always going to be at least one cost that was not considered when planning your budget. If you are going to visit Los Angeles, California, you may want to look at one of the best options available to see many of the local attractions at a fraction of the original cost. The Hollywood CityPass offers tourists a way to see four different attractions at a very inexpensive price.

Madame Tussauds Hollywood

Madame Tussauds Hollywood is a place filled with wonder and amazement. Upon entrance, you can visit movie scenes, such as Kill Bill, where the exhibits are sure to amaze you. There are A-list parties to attend, and if you want to dance with Rihanna, you have full access to do so. Madame Tussauds Hollywood is a museum-like hall which features some of the most important times in the film industry. One adult admission online is $18.87, but it will cost a hefty $26.95 if you wait to purchase your tickets at the door.

The Hollywood Behind-the-Scenes Tour

The Hollywood Behind-the-Scenes Tour is a 60 minute guided tour which will take visitors to the movie palaces, takes you down the Walk of Fame to the best place to view the Hollywood sign, and guides you to the Chinese theater so that you can see your favorite stars’ cement prints. There is no other package that offers this tour, and it gets rave review on a number of travel websites.

Starline Homes or Star Line Hop

Next, you can choose one of two options. The first option is the Starline Movie Stars’ Homes Tour. This tour features homes of the, you guessed it, local stars of old and new. The Starline Hop-on, Hop-off Tour is the other choice. This tour allows visitors to ride the double-decker bus, but they have the option to hop off of the bus at any time. Once they are ready to hop back on, they simply need to check the timetable for the next stop and available bus. Both of these tours are between $40 and $50 dollars.

Dolby Theatre or Hollywood Museum

The last option in the CityPass is the option between the Dolby Theatre and the Hollywood Museum. The Dolby Theatre is where there are concert and entertainment venues. The Dolby Theatre is extremely popular amongst locals and tourists. The Hollywood Museum is for people who want to really see the history of the film and movie industry. The museum holds the most extensive collection of movie memorabilia in the world. Tickets to the Dolby theatre range from $24 to $130, and tickets to the Hollywood Museum are $15 for an adult.

The CityPass not only offers many great tours and destinations, but the pass also offers everything at an extremely discounted rate. The CityPass price is only $59, and that price includes a one of a kind tour through Hollywood.
