If you鈥檙e like many of us, right after watching the whimsical and wonderful La La Land, you started to scour for flights to Los Angeles like STAT. The film made the sprawling city look so vibrant, romantic, and way worthy of vacay goals. If perhaps you happen to already reside in or near Los Angeles, then you were no doubt filled with the urge to play tourist in your own town. Whether you鈥檙e near or far, one thing is sure 鈥 thanks to the Oscar-nominated blockbuster, the City of Angels is having a moment. It鈥檚 not just the locations in La La Land that are so beautifully included (Hermosa Pier, Grand Central Market, Watt Towers, and Century Freeway); it鈥檚 the idea that this is the place where the magic happens, where worlds are created, and fantasies are fulfilled (both on screen and off). Visit one, two, or all of these Hollywood movie-centric locales to honor one of America鈥檚 greatest art forms.

1. Warner Bros. Studio Tour Hollywood: If you act fast and book a trip to the Warner Bros. Studio Tour Hollywood sooner than later, you can experience a bit of La La Land IRL. For a limited time (now until March 6, 2017), you鈥檒l be able to walk right onto the reconstructed 鈥淐af茅 Sur Le Lot鈥 set, the caf茅 where Emma Stone鈥檚 character Mia once slung coffee. You can also check out where other classics of the small and big screen were shot 鈥 we鈥檙e talking classic faves like Casablanca, Gilmore Girls, and Friends. Plus, lots of current shows are in production on the lot like Ellen, Pretty Little Liars, and Shameless. (Photo via Warner Bros. Studio Tour)

2. Universal Studios Hollywood: Sure, Universal Studios Hollywood has The Wizarding World of Harry Potter (accio magic!), the Walking Dead Attraction (zombies!), and an immersive Simpsons area (Hello, Marge and Homer!), but to get a taste of movie-making magic, you鈥檝e gotta go on the Studio Tour. You鈥檒l see the Bates Motel, be confronted by King Kong, and come face to face with Jaws. If you鈥檙e feeling fancy, you can upgrade to the VIP Experience that has lots more perks and exclusive back lot access. (Photo via Kevork Djansezian/Getty)

3. Griffith Observatory: Not one, but two huge Hollywood movies have included the stunning Griffith Observatory: one old-school (Rebel Without a Cause) and one new-school (La La Land). Additionally, you鈥檒l get an unparalleled view of the City of Angels from its high in the hills vantage point. By the by, doing a little dance in the planetarium is totally optional.

4. Hollywood Walk of Fame: In LA, the stars aren鈥檛 just in the sky or working in the studios; they鈥檙e right there under your feet. Embedded in the sidewalks of 15 blocks of Hollywood Boulevard and three blocks of Vine Street, you鈥檒l find 2,600 terrazzo and brass stars honoring all sorts of tinsel town luminaries. Swing by, and say howdy to an eclectic mix of stars like Buster Keaton, Reese Witherspoon, or Johnny Cash. They鈥檙e all there (except for Donald Trump鈥檚; his star has, well, had some work done).

5. Grauman鈥檚 Chinese Theatre: There鈥檚 something so quaint and charming about the entrance to Grauman鈥檚 Chinese Theatre (now TCL Chinese Theatres). From 1927 until today, cement tributes to Hollywood鈥檚 brightest stars have been on display in front of the movie palace on Hollywood Blvd. Along with hands and feet, there are a few oddities in the mix: Betty Grable鈥檚 legs, Groucho Marx鈥檚 cigar, and the wands of Harry Potter stars Daniel Radcliffe, Emma Watson, and Rupert Grint. In celebration of the success of La La Land, the hand and footprints of Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone are currently front and center. (Photo via Gregg DeGuire/Getty)

While snagging a ticket to the big night is the thing of dreams, you can visit the ginormous theater during other times of the year. You can book tickets and visit the Dolby Lounge, see various images of past Oscars, and see a real statuette up close and personal. (Photo via AaronP/Bauer-Griffin)

7. Chateau Marmont: If you want to stay in one of the Chateau Marmont鈥檚 63 rooms or suites, it will cost you (rooms start at about $550). The swanky hotel has seen pretty much every movie star walk through their doors. Instead of getting a pricey bed for the night, go and have a drink at the bar or a meal in their restaurant. You never know who鈥檒l you鈥檒l see walking through. (Photo via AaronP/Bauer-Griffin/Getty)

8. Forest Lawn Memorial Park: If you don鈥檛 see any living and breathing stars, you can always see some that are no longer with us. Forest Lawn Memorial Park is the final resting spot for many a bold-faced name including the likes of Lucille Ball, Paul Walker, Bob Baker, and most recently, Debbie Reynold and Carrie Fisher. Michael Jackson and Walt Disney are there too, but they鈥檙e in private parts of the grounds. (Photo via FG/Bauer-Griffin/Getty)
