Los Angeles' golden age wasn't just about Hollywood glamour on screen. Sunset Tower hotel, the Pantages theater and more of the city's most beautiful buildings were constructed during that time as well.
Located at the corner Wilshire and Western in Koreatown, this Art Deco-style vaudeville house was eventually converted into a popular concert venue.
A centerpiece of many a movie, the Griffith Park Observatory (and the amazing views it offers) is still better taken in in person.
Historic Hollywood vaudeville house (and former home of the Oscars) now serves as the number one place for touring Broadway headliners.
Landmark Hollywood theater gets a second life as a popular live music and comedy venue. Go for the events, but don't forget to admire the architecture.
The former living quarters of Old Hollywood elite is now a happening spot for A-lister industry types, who share drinks and gossip in the Tower Bar and entertain clients who check into the hotel.
