Can't-Miss Studio Tours

October 03, 2016

If you’re a TV show or movie fanatic, then you can’t miss studio tours while visiting the land of production. Visitors explore indoor and outdoor sets and get to see the props used to create their favorite movies and shows firsthand. Since Hollywood boasts a variety of backlot tours, the easiest way to decide which one to visit is by choosing your favorite movies, and the best part is that no two tours will be the same. And who knows, there may even be some celebrity sightings while you're there!
