For countless aspiring entertainers, making it to Hollywood is the ultimate dream. At the same time, it’s also a pretty amazing place to live – and it’s only getting better. The Hollywood area may have been through some less-than-stellar times, but it’s currently in the midst of a resurgence, and you could be right at the center of it. Plus, you’d get to tell people you lived in Hollywood – and how cool would that be?
Here are 5 more reasons you should consider making Hollywood your next home:
1) It’s at the heart of Los Angeles
Hollywood is right in the middle of everything Los Angeles has to offer. Griffith Observatory, The Dodgers Stadium, and Beverly Hills are all just a short drive away. Want to leave the car behind? No problem. Los Angeles has one of the best and largest public transportation systems in the city, and the Hollywood area is home to three Metro stations. Stars are known to frequent many of the local establishments – day and night – so celebrity sightings are also more likely than most places on Earth.
2) The night life is some of the best in the city
Looking for a unique experience when you go out? Hollywood has you covered. If you like bars with character, you’ll love the infamous Tiki-Ti, where the preparation of certain drinks is accompanied by tavern-wide chanting, or The Spare Room, a bar with a bowling alley, located inside The Roosevelt Hotel. History buffs will get a thrill out of drinking at The Frolic Room, a favorite watering hole of author Charles Bukowski, originally opened in 1934. Plus, when you’re partying in Hollywood, you never know who you’ll run into.
3) It’s ideal for aspiring entertainers
If you’re trying to make it in showbiz, there truly is no place like Hollywood – which makes it the perfect place to live for aspiring entertainers. In addition to the innate and unique networking opportunities the area provides, you’ll also find yourself closer to auditions – which means less time in traffic, and less of a chance of blowing a gig all because you were late.
4) In Hollywood, there’s always something to see, eat, or do
Hollywood offers an incredibly diverse selection of high-quality (yet affordable) cuisine, as well as a nearly endless array of activities. It’s also home to a host of legendary theaters, like the Historic Chinese Theatre, and the ArcLight, which frequently host film premieres. Want some fresh air and a unique atmosphere while you catch a film? You won’t want to miss the summer screenings at the Hollywood Forever Cemetary. Fans of stand-up comedy will love the Upright Citizen’s Brigade, a comedy club well known for kick-starting some of the biggest names in the scene, while music fans will want to catch shows at the historic Hollywood Bowl, a massive outdoor amphitheater known for hosting the world’s most famous acts.
