Runyon Canyon

Your L.A. guest, whether they are a friend, a relative, or someone special, can be an indoor person or an outdoor person. There is still one thing that most people in the world have in common, though, and that is to see a celebrity up close. Your friends and relatives are no exception to this.
Some people would travel the world just to see a celebrity beyond the camera, so while you’re in L.A., one of the spots to bring them is to Runyon Canyon. This is one of the best places to take someone if they would want to spy on a celebrity. It is a great spot, credits to its hiking roads and picture-perfect view. If you stay here long enough, or if you come back more often, you would probably bump into Channing Tatum, Justin Bieber, Amanda Seyfried, Natalie Portman, or Kathy Griffin.

Beauty & Essex

If you want to have a picture or get an autograph from a celebrity, then look no further. One of Hollywood’s newest and trendiest spots is Beauty & Essex. It is inside the Dream Hotel, and you can chill and act as if you’re not on a hunt for famous people while you’re inside. There are a variety of activities to do here. You can lounge around, take a tour of the place, grab a quick bite to eat, drink some coffee, go shopping, or get your picture taken – maybe even with someone so famous. In the middle of exploring the place, you may witness the glorifying presence of Beyoncé and Jay-Z, Selena Gomez, The Weeknd, or Paris Hilton. Spending time and money here would be a worthy investment if you do meet them!

TCL Chinese Theaters

What better place is there to spot a celebrity than the place where they all get together usually – red carpet events? While it’s true that the TCL Chinese Theater is tough to get into, it is also worth it. For every red carpet event, people would flock over to the theaters and wait outside just to get a glimpse of their favorite celebrities. You could try and sit in and watch until the film credits, but that would be hard if it’s for the premiere. This is also the place where, even when there is no event, the paparazzi would go since they know this is where rehearsals take place sometimes. Celebrities would be coming in and out of their cars to the building and you would hear endless screams of their names. Soon enough, your voice would blend with the crowds’.

Beverly Hills Hotel

If you aren’t on a tight budget while on a mission to see celebrities or on a vacation in L.A., you can always check into Beverly Hills Hotel. This is the perfect spot since celebrities come and go in this place. Well, if only it wasn’t so expensive. You can either check-in for three days and two nights or wait for at least one or two celebrities to pass by the lobby or by the pool area. Most likely, you’ll see The Kardashians, Michael Douglas, Nicole Kidman, or Warren Beatty inside. Just be warned, staying here for long may lead to bankruptcy.

Chris Mcmillan Salon

Chris Mcmillan didn’t just make the signature Rachel Green hairstyle craze, he also owns the place where celebrities would go to have their hair done. You might want to have yours done, too. After you have your haircut and there isn’t a celebrity in sight yet, you can get a pedicure for a longer stay inside the salon. Getting your hair and nails done and seeing your favorite celebrity will be worth the investment money you spend.

Los Angeles International Airport (LAX)

LAX is the best place to sit all day long if you want to spot a celebrity up close. Most celebrities only bring two bodyguards while traveling and they want to look as ordinary as possible, so it shouldn’t be so hard for you to get a picture or an autograph. You could set up a bench outside or you can park your car somewhere close.

Malibu Country Mart

When celebs want to shop somewhere casual, this is the place they would go. Wouldn’t it just be a dream come true when you see Leonardo DiCaprio in his shorts buying a bag of apples?

Carbon Beach

Of course, the beach is one of the places celebrities want to go to. Fall asleep in the tanning bed at Carbon Beach, long enough for you to spot a superstar. They would likely be in their beach outfits, too!


The most ideal place for you to stand by is the coffee shop, and yes, celebrities are Starbucks loyal. They are more than loyal – they are obsessed with SB coffees and other beverages. This place is chill, so you don’t have to spend too much, and it is very easy to locate. It’s also not intimidating, so you don’t have to worry about your hair or your outfit. You can even work from the coffee shop or have your online classes here while spying for celebrities – it is called multi-tasking.
