Buses coast down sunny avenues lined with palm trees and pastel-colored buildings. Many of these buildings boast complex histories—as music venues, film studios, boarding schools for stuntmen, and more—that synced audio tracks and charming tour guides divulge during Rockin Hollywood Tours' interactive excursions. On each tour, groups pass more than 70 sites around the streets of Bel Air, Beverly Hills, Hollywood, and West Hollywood. Guides expound on well-known landmarks such as the Hollywood sign, the Jim Henson Company lot (the former home of Charlie Chaplin Studios), and the Playboy Mansion. They also lead riders through musical history and Elton John's personal diaries as they pass venues including Whisky A Go Go, the Troubadour, and Capitol Records studios. Driving through residential areas, guides also point out the past and present homes of celebrities such as Elvis Presley, Frank Sinatra, Michael Jackson, Eddie Murphy, and Nicolas Cage.

In 1981, college roommates Cheryl Krueger and Caryl Walker opened a bakery called Cheryl?s Cookies. Over time they began to use their ovens for more than just those eponymous cookies, and seven years later they opted to simplify the name to Cheryl's. These days the versatile bakery draws on 30 years of experience to craft treats and gift baskets that help mark special occasions, churning out an assortment of cakes and brownies alongside their signature happy-face cookies. Most of the treats are certified kosher and come in a variety of flavors, from snickerdoodle to buttercream. Sugar-free options sate sensitive teeth, and treats can be combined to create gift baskets, tins, and boxes for any informal or formal occasion.
