Immerse yourself in the legend of Hollywood on this walk through its main strip
The Sunset Strip is a legendary part of Tinseltown’s glamour scene. In under a century, this street went from an unpaved road in an unpopulated, unincorporated town to an artery at the centre of the modern-day entertainment and music business. Join us on a self-guided audio tour that brings its history to life on a walk along Sunset Boulevard between Beverly Hills and Hollywood. 

Highlights include visits to iconic places such as: 

• The restaurant where Marilyn Monroe went on her first blind date with Joe DiMaggio 
• The nightclub where Frank Sinatra made his debut as a solo act 
• The "Hotel to the Stars” that was home to Robert DeNiro, Keanu Reeves, Scarlet Johansson, Leonardo DiCaprio and Matthew McConaughey 
• The nightclub where Lucille Ball and Desi Arnaz filmed their Tropicana nightclub act for the “I Love Lucy” show 
• The former grocery store that Johnny Depp bought and converted to a popular nightclub and where Joaquin Phoenix’s brother, River Phoenix, died
