Full of designer shops (BCBGMaxAzria, Louis Vuitton) and chain stores (Victoria's Secret, Fossil, and Sephora), this entertainment complex is a huge tourist magnet. The design pays tribute to the city's film legacy, with a grand staircase leading up to a pair of three-story-tall stucco elephants, a nod to the 1916 movie Intolerance. Pause at the entrance arch, called Babylon Court, which frames a picture-perfect view of the Hollywood Sign. On the second level, next
to the Dolby Theatre, is a visitor information center with a maps, brochures, and a multilingual staff. The streets nearby provide the setting for Sunday's Hollywood Farmers Market, where you're likely to spot a celebrity or two picking up fresh produce or stopping to eat breakfast from the food vendors.
