Burbank is a popular business travel destination, especially for filmmakers, featuring not only beautiful warm weather year-round, but only a few minutes’ drive away from acclaimed full-service and boutique accommodations, sumptuous dining options, and incomparable shopping. It’s near Beverly Hills, known as the playground to the rich, the famous, and the glamorous—the home of some of Southern California’s most lavish homes, hotels, and celebrity personalities. Surrounded by the cities of Los Angeles and West Hollywood, Burbank is the gateway to the area’s biggest icons, offering all sorts of wealth, drama, excess, and star power, as well as the beloved cinematic allure of classic Hollywood itself. And though it just might possibly part you and your wallet with a substantial stack of bills, it’s all worth it in the end to live like the rich and the famous for a day or two!
Hike in Griffith Park for beautiful views of Los Angeles, and don’t forget to bring your camera! If you love movies and TV shows, you’re also in the right place, because you can walk through famous sets at the Warner Brothers Studio Tour Hollywood. Catch an evening movie or concert at the open air Starlight Bowl, or attend a live taping of a TV show!
Nearby cities also offer so many things to do. Definitely visit Beverly Hills, where there are three full blocks of unique luxury boutiques as well as bustling cafes all along North and South Beverly Drive to explore. Guests seeking a little Hollywood movie magic can check out The Paley Center for Media. Designed by renowned architect Richard Meier of Getty Center fame, the center's contemporary facade boasts floor to ceiling windows and sleek, modern lines. Inside, visitors can experience an unparalleled library of classic radio and television programming, screening events, and panel discussions.
Need a beach day? You’re also not too far from the ocean and can drive to Santa Monica for a day on the sand.
Easily explore the rest of lovely L to the A by traveling east on Santa Monica Boulevard to West Hollywood or west on Santa Monica Boulevard to Century City or the beautiful beaches at the Santa Monica Pier. South on Robertson Boulevard will lead you to Culver City, which has got a plethora of hot nightclubs and bars, and venture deep into downtown to check out a gaggle of galleries, museums, and cultural wonders to gawk at, such as the LACMA, which boasts a world-class collection, or the newly opened Broad Museum. For outdoor enthusiasts, there are also quite a few exciting excursions in and around the area to make for the perfect adventure: ride the Marvin Braude Bike Trial, or stroll through Abbott Kinney First Fridays. For the ultimate local experience, make sure to do a Barnsdall Wine Tasting in Silver Lake, to sample some culinary delights at Grand Central Market, and to picnic while taking in a free Cinespia outdoor movie screening.
What’s more is that there’s also a diverse patchwork of international neighborhoods offering unique experiences as well. Koreatown draws hipsters eager to savor some classic Korean BBQ. There’s Chinatown, Little Tokyo, and Little Armenia as well! Plus, DTLA is no longer a shabby industrial district, but a cultural haven with spots like the lavish Standard and Ace, or the buzzy Perch to grab a creative cocktail at. And for fashionistas looking for something other than the big labels and brands of Beverly Hills, saunter on over to boutique outfits like Wittmore for smart menswear and accessories, or pick up iconic tableware from Heath Ceramics.
