Our Picks - L.A Deco Hot-Spots For Your Vacation

Posted by Olivia Morier on

Here at the Deco Haus, we’re all incredibly inspired by the glamorous “Golden Age” of Hollywood film and fashion. Lights, Camera, Action! It’s what this beautiful city is known for.  So, given that it’s summer and time to travel, we figured we’d show you some of our favorite Hollywood hot-spots....if traveling to L.A is on your summer bucket list! Whether you want to learn a little bit more about Hollywood history or just want to have a good time, these fun tourist attractions are our picks for any film and fashion lover.

 

Hollywood Heritage Museum:

First off on our list is obviously the Hollywood Heritage Museum. Being a museum, it’s typically more interesting for someone who enjoys learning about history.  However, its charming vintage facade and historic memorabilia appeal to almost everyone. The museum features archival photographs from the silent era of motion pictures, movie props, historic documents and other movie related memorabilia. They even show silent movies every once in a while! Be warned however, it’s only open on Saturdays and Sundays from 12:00 - 4:00, so plan your visit accordingly.

Address: 2100 North Highland Avenue, Hollywood, CA

 

 

Grauman's Chinese Theater:

Second on our list is the Grauman’s Chinese Theater. Its outstanding architecture makes it an incredible place to visit for any eager sight-seer...from film lovers to history nerds. Whether you want to see the latest hit movie, take a tour, or even just walk around and enjoy the beauty, this theater has it all!  If you happen to go, be sure not to miss the famous hand and footprints that the Chinese Theater is known for! From Marilyn Monroe to George Clooney; they’ve made their mark both on the camera andin the cement! If you end up in L.A this summer, this is a definite must-see for absolutely everyone.

FIDM Museum:

Another great place for deco lovers to visit is FIDM (Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising). They have an amazing 10,000 piece costume collection, featuring clothing from the late 19th century to the present day, including theater and film costume. You can take a tour of the campus and possibly see the Academy Award winning costume of the year! Our owner and founder Jill even took classes there when she first came to L.A. It’s definitely an important place to visit for anybody with a passion for fashion!

Paramount Studios:

Lastly, we suggest taking a tour of Paramount Studios. Founded on May 8th, 1912, this is a MUST-SEE for almost any person traveling to Hollywood.  In fact, it is the last major film studio headquartered in the Hollywood district. Because it’s a working studio, each tour is a different experience. You can see Paramount’s private movie theater, Lucy Park, Paramount’s backlot, Forrest Gump’s bench, Bronson Gate, sound stages, and actual sets (if they’re not being used), and maybe even a star or two! It is definitely worth your time to visit Paramount, especially for any aspiring film-maker or someone interested in some good old film history.

Finish your visit off with some shopping and lunch on Rodeo Drive, and your Deco-inspired tour of Los Angeles is complete! If you do happen to visit any of these places while you’re in L.A, make sure to tag us on Instagram.  We’d love to hear about it!          

Until next time...
