The family enjoyed the energetic buzz of the city, where millions of tourists flock annually to experience the mash-up of culture, cuisine, and of course, the famous Hollywood sign.

Hollywood Walk of Fame

One of the family’s favorite activities was walking down Hollywood Boulevard and seeing the bronze star-plaques embedded into the sidewalk cement. The renowned Hollywood Walk of Fame honors the best actors, stage performers, directors, singers, and other show-biz personalities that have influenced the industry over the years.

Madame Tussaud’s House of Wax

At Madame Tussaud’s House of Wax, Naomi Loomis and her family enjoyed “interacting” with famous celebrities.

Hundreds of the most well-known stars are carved from wax in incredible likeness. Using computers, virtual clones of celebrities were made so that each figure looks identical to the celebrity it is impersonating. Madame Tussaud’s provides the perfect photo op!

Musso & Frank Grill

While on Hollywood Boulevard, the Loomises couldn’t pass up the opportunity to dine at one of Hollywood’s oldest landmarks. Naomi Loomis reveled in the fact that legendary writers such as F. Scott Fitzgerald and William Faulkner once occupied the same restaurant. In addition, it is common to spot today’s celebrities in a booth nearby. Musso & Frank Grill is a popular destination for Al Pacino, Tom Selleck,  Brad Pitt, and Nicholas Cage. The restaurant was also featured in the hit film, “Oceans 11.”

Sunset Strip

Exhausted after a day of fun on Hollywood Boulevard, the Loomises cruised down the Sunset Strip, a famous street linking the Valley to the lush neighborhoods of LA. The Strip weaves through the most posh neighborhoods, including Bel-Air, Beverly Hills, and Malibu County. Most of these locations became inspiration for a number of songs, TV shows, and movies throughout the years.
