By night, the statue of martial arts star Bruce Lee watches over the 1930s era facades, while art galleries host openings, bustling new restaurants serve the latest dishes and live music serenades visitors.

Hollywood Forever's charms are somewhat hidden. Drive by and you might barely notice it, unless you're trying to make your way past the line of cars snaking out onto Santa Monica Boulevard some Saturday night. (More on that later.) Tucked off of a busy stretch a few blocks east of Vine Street, it's easily accessible by bus. Visitors can tour the grounds for free from Monday through Sunday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.

The Line Hotel

"As of 2014, I’m a fresh and totally unjaded addition to the hotel scene! Located in Koreatown, (the neighborhood that never sleeps), I’m a limited edition, exposed concrete, indie-urbanite foodie kind of lover - ageless but definitely young at heart. I know how to have fun, but I also wear socks that match, because I’m a stylish and confident creative who knows that being organized, having an intimate understanding of the color wheel and living an uncluttered, paperless lifestyle are the keys to happiness!"
