Walking in LA...

You may know the song...Nobody walks in LA. Well, recently I took a walking tour with Red Line Tours & loved it! I've never taken one of the Hollywood Bus Tours, never bought a map to the stars homes. I've always thought it would be fun, but also thought I'd be enjoying the bus ride incognito & one of the other passengers would turn & say, "HEY, don't I know you?! You're that girl from that show...right?" Well when Red Line invited me to the unveiling party for their beautiful new 'Icons of Hollywood' tickets & promised a behind the scenes walking tour as well, I jumped at the chance! As an added bonus I got to hang out with friends Kate Linder (Young & the Restless), Romi Dames (Hannah Montana), Mary McDonough(The Waltons), The Livingston brothers (My 3 Sons) & many more. I loved going inside the Hollywood landmarks & learned tons of fun facts. Did you know that Sid Graumann came up with the idea for the red carpet? The first red carpet event ever was for the movie premiere of Robin Hood in 1922 at the Egyptian Theater. Also fun, at the party after the tour I spent half an hour talking to the legendary Ruta Lee & her handsome husband about the joys of alpaca ranching!
