If you're curious about Hollywood but feel a little tacky about buying one of those movie star maps or gawking with other tourists who board tour buses trying to glimpse their favorite stars, consider instead just living like a star yourself on the famous Sunset Strip.
This is the perfect solution for those who want to class up their visit to Hollywood but still satisfy the urge to be close to the rich and famous entertainers who live and work in the Entertainment Capital of the World. You might have to abandon the façade just long enough to see the stars on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, or to place your feet in the Grumman Theater foot impressions left by your favorite star, or to hike up to the Hollywood sign, but not to worry: Just slip on your sunglasses and no one will know who you really are.
