Los Angeles locations have made countless appearances in films and TV episodes. Downtown L.A.’s City Hall, Union Station, Millennium Biltmore Hotel and the Bradbury Building have had starring roles for decades. Historic Hollywood locations include landmarks such as Yamashiro Restaurant and the Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel. L.A.’s natural landscape provides numerous locations, whether it’s Santa Monica beach for Baywatch or Vasquez Rocks, as seen in Star Trek. For over a century, L.A. has been the home of legendary studios, where silent movies, the latest blockbusters and hit TV shows have been shot. Must-sees for fans are tours of Universal Studios, Warner Brothers, Paramount Pictures and Sony Pictures. And a sure way to get on TV is to attend a taping of a game show or talk show at a major network studio.
