On the Hollywood Hills, there is an amazing symbol of the city - the inscription HOLLYWOOD laid out in white letters. For almost a hundred years now, it remains a permanent symbol of the American film industry. This inscription was placed in 1923 as an advertisement for a residential area. Initially, it was planned that it would be located on the hills only a few years. However, over the years the city authorities did not rush to part with such an original symbol. The inscription is regularly restored and still used as an advertising symbol.
There are several interesting museums in the city. The Natural History Museum is perfect for a family visit. It is housed in an incredibly beautiful historical building, which is an architectural construction of national importance. The opening of the museum took place in 1913.
