We went to California for the first time a few years ago. I thought the airport was strange looking. It has a “War of the Worlds” vibe. fortunately there were Ubers lined up outside to whisk us to Hollywood.
We walked on the stars, took one of those bus tours to see how the stars up in the Hollywood Hills live (Aren’t they worried about fires, earthquakes?) Then of course the La Brea Tar Pits. Only then we continued on to Universal Studios, because standing in line is our idea of fun.
