Going Hollywood Together

Tags : city gambling girlfriend getaways shopping spa tours

Transform your group into Hollywood starlets without having to work a single shift at Schwab's Drugstore.

Get the girlfriends together and check out the glitz, glamour, and allure of the west by seeing stars in Hollywood, and exploring the spas, shopping, dining and excitement of Palm Springs and Las Vegas.

Start your meteoric rise to glamour with a star tour of Beverly Hills and Bel Air, viewing the unforgettable homes of Nicholas Cage, Barbara Streisand, Madonna, and more.

Pass by the Playboy Mansion, cruise the Sunset Strip, and drive through famed Rodeo Drive, where the rich and famous shop. See the Hollywood Sign, wander the Walk of Fame, and learn about the footprints outside Mann's Chinese Theatre. Take an "insiders" visit to the famous Kodak Theatre, home to the Academy Awards, and a VIP tour of Warner Brother's Studios. Visit the famous and historic Los Angeles Farmer's Market, a.k.a."the number one place to spot stars," where you'll have time to explore the unique shops and eateries before joining the fun as part of a "live studio audience" at an actual TV show taping.

Then leave the excitement of Hollywood, and travel across the Colorado Desert to the resort oasis of Palm Springs. Celebrities come here, as they have since the golden age of Hollywood, to escape the hustle and bustle of Los Angeles. In Palm Springs, get an in-depth history of the area plus lots of juicy insider information. You'll see the homes of Frank Sinatra, Celine Dion, Dean Martin, Bob Hope, and many more.

Be sure to take the Palm Springs Aerial Tram up to 8,516 feet for spectacular views of the city and desert below. Relax by the pool, book a spa appointment, play a round of golf, browse the many shops and galleries, or visit the Palm Springs Desert Museum. If the girls are looking for more adventure, join a bicycle tour or take a 4-wheel-drive tour into the desert. Next,  head to Las Vegas. 

Get the real stories of the famous Rat Pack and reclusive Howard Hughes who lived for years at the Desert Inn, see the spot of the original Aladdin Hotel where Elvis and Priscilla were married, visit revitalized Fremont Street in downtown Vegas and the Little Church of the West where such stars as Betty Grable, Zsa Zsa Gabor and Richard Gere got hitched.

You'll also learn why Las Vegas is considered the "new Hollywood," viewing one of the dazzling shows. Then, relax by the pool or walk the Las Vegas Strip with its casinos, shopping plazas and other attractions.

Pamper yourselves like the stars do in one of the many beautifully appointed spa, which have sprouted up all over Vegas, attracting the best in the business for massages, raps, and other treatments. It's easy to arrange VIP entrance to clubs or restaurants as well. Or take an evening helicopter flight over the Strip to see the famous lights of Las Vegas as you enjoy a glass of champagne. An exiting ending to your glamorous experience!
