Wow this thread is so helpful. Thank you everyone for this. We have a whole day to spend exploring Hollywood. I would like to head to Westwood Memorial Park (from the discussion 1st on my list), then head East on Wiltshire to Rodeo Drive. Now from there I want to go to Holywood/Highland for the shopping and the walk of fame and the disney shops. But I would also like to see Forest Lawn Memorial Glendale and Hollywood Hills. Then end up at the Observatory at the end of the day for the sunset. We will spend at least 1-2 hours per gardens depending on the day. The biggest thing is the monuments at these park, I have heard they are huge and incredible. I also can't be in California without seeing my favourite actress Marilyn Monroe's grave site. Can this be done without rushing?? Shopping is really just for fun, this won't take up alot of time, more will be the walk of fame and the disney shop and soda place.
