In the thirty years that I lived in Los Angeles, I lived several different parts of town. Of them all, my favorite neighborhood by far was Beachwood Canyon. Although it's best known as the home of L.A.'s most prominent landmark, the Hollywood sign, it's much more than that. Beachwood Canyon is the epitome of the Hollywood Hills lifestyle, a quaint village above the urban angst of Hollywood and Vine.

The first thing you might notice when walking around in Hollywood is the stars on the ground with various actors and characters' names. This is known as the Hollywood Walk of Fame, and can provide some great entertainment as you can try to track down your favorite stars. Once you're done with that, you might want to find out a little bit more information on the city's history. Of course, the city is known for its star-studded past and movie history, which is why the Hollywood Motion Picture Collection is a wonderful place to go to. This massive movie collection has some popular clothes, sets, and props from many famous classic movies including "Planet of the Apes" and "The Wizard of Oz."

My favorite version of the Hollywood Sign Hike starts at the north end of North Beachwood Drive and ends at the top of Mount Lee, just above the sign. The hike is moderately strenuous and offers very little shade. It is about three miles round trip and has an elevation gain of about 800 feet. The entire hike takes me about 1 1/2 to 2 hours at a relaxed pace.

The Hollywood sign has its own state-of-the-art security system: after numerous acts of vandalism, the Hollywood Sign Trust (a group formed in 1992 to maintain and promote the sign) installed cameras and other safety devices in 2000. Unfortunate incidents involving the sign, like the 1932 suicide of struggling actress Peg Entwhistle, the infamous 1973 altering of the sign to read "Hollyweed" to advocate marijuana usage, or the arson of the letter "L" in the 1970's, are now prevented by a crew of eagle-eyed watchers over the internet.

When travelling on a vacation, one of your goals is to take postcard like pictures. Taking a picture of the Hollywood sign and driving around the area is the best way to start your official Hollywood tour. The sign actually originated as an advertisement for a real estate development way back in 1923. Hollywoodland was the original word that was formed based on the real estates company name. Today, it is no longer known as a bold and ambitious form of advertisement, but the Hollywood Sign has become a classic symbol of Los Angeles, California.
