Under $100 / North America

Exploring Hollywood is an adventure, but don’t let your wallet hold you back. There are plenty of ways to enjoy this town even on a budget. Check out this itinerary to see the city in a day for less than $100.


Start your day at Breakfast by Salt’s Cure, a great morning spot serving fresh California fare. Enjoy a plate of oatmeal griddle cakes, a side of protein and a cup of Joe for around $20.


Spend your morning exploring with a hike to the Hollywood sign and then hit the world-famous Hollywood Boulevard to see the sites like the stars on the Walk of Fame, the iconic intersection of Hollywood and Vine, and the landmark Chinese Theater.


For lunch, head to Pink’s, a famous hot dog stand that is a Hollywood landmark in its own right. Don’t be surprised if you run into a celebrity or two while waiting in line. Grab a dog, a drink and a side of fries for less than $15. Some awesome choices include the Lord of the Rings Dog, covered in onion rings and smothered in barbecue sauce, or the La La Land Dog, which includes guacamole, tomatoes, bacon bits and sour cream.


With your belly full, spend the afternoon touring the infamous Hollywood Forever Cemetery. While touring a cemetery may seem a bit macabre, this location is well-known for its 2.5-hour tour of the final resting place of legendary Hollywood stars. Tours are $20 per person.


Grab dinner at one of the local eateries, like Guisado’s, which serves fabulous street tacos in homemade tortillas. Grab your fill of tacos and a drink for around $25, leaving you plenty of money left to grab a drink at one of Hollywood’s popular bars.

Swissgear 1900 ScanSmart Backpack

Among the myriad concerns the everyday traveler may have when approaching any trip, safety and security are most likely the most important, but protecting yourself from both bodily harm and petty theft can distract you from the real reason for your travel: to escape daily life and immerse yourself in another culture. Therefore, it makes sense to invest in travel accessories that can perform multiple functions, like carrying your gear while also protecting it with state-of-the-art security features.
