Comments aboutSmart Destinations :
Located @ the Hollywood & Highland center the Dolby Theatre created to host the Oscars does not disappoint. Once again our GO Cards were easily scanned. We ascended the stairs just like the stars do (great photo ops). We were then greeted by our friendly and knowledgeable tour guide who escorted us into the main lobby. Sadly we were informed no pictures allowed though at the end they did give us each a great picture postcard. The tour included a lot a anecdotes and of course real behind the scenes touring. Walking onto center stage just as the winners do was quite a thrill. We were told that this year the Oscars was delayed because of the Olympics. The Olympics they stated is the most watched televised event in the world. The Oscars however are the second most viewed programming in the world and they take place every year! For the two weeks leading up to the show the Dolby theatre is closed. So plan accordingly not to be disappointed. Note that you are indeed in the heart of Hollywood when visiting there. Lots to see and do.
