Your Naughty Travel Guide to Los Angeles
An interesting and fun way to explore Los Angeles is by taking one of the “hop on, hop off” Starline tours (6925 Hollywood Blvd. Chinese Theatre Forecourt Hollywood, CA 90028/www.starlinetours.com) that are available. I call them “topless” because the buses they use are just that – open air rides, where you can let the cool breezes and California sunshine sweep you away as you take in all the fantastic sites!
By purchasing a copy of my book, “Naughty Girl’s Guide to Los Angeles,” you can craft your own unique bus tour by using it as a tool to compliment the Starline Tours. It’s perfect because you don’t have to drive, you can take as much time as you want and they stop off at all the best spots, tailor made for the penultimate naughty tour experience! I’ve included the stop numbers for the topless tour below to match with the different places of interest for you (you’ll need to get a copy of their map to follow the tour). So print out this article, buy a copy of my book and take it with your on your topless tour with Starline Tours.
Yellow Line Route
You can take your pick of either starting in Santa Monica on the Yellow Line Route or the Red Line Route, which goes through Hollywood and Beverly Hills. If you take the Santa Monica/Beverly Hills tour, which begins at the ticket office at Ocean Ave. and the Santa Monica Pier ( stop #57 ) – you will absolutely want to take in some shopping at the 3rd Street Promenade ( stop #59 ), after which you can walk over to the Huntley Hotel (1111 2nd St Santa Monica, CA 90403) and have lunch at The Penthouse, their top floor restaurant. The Huntley is listed in my book as one of the sexiest places to stay in Los Angeles and the Penthouse is an excellent, fine dining destination with some of the most spectacular views of the ocean the city has to offer.
Since you’re in Santa Monica, you will also want to visit Pink Lili ( stop # 60/1129 Montana Ave Santa Monica, CA 90403), which is a great, high-end lingerie and swimwear boutique that many celebrities shop at. Then moving forward into Brentwood, a stop to the Brentwood Country Mart ( stop #61 ) produces great boutique shopping, at places like Loupilou (13050 San Vicente Blvd # 209 Los Angeles, CA 90049) where you can peruse the French inspired designs to get in touch with your sexy and confident inner French Girl. You’ll find Blush right next door, which aside from being a great beauty boutique, also specializes in Ionithermie treatments to help melt away the inches and reduce unwanted cellulite.
While on the west side of town, another interesting site to visit is Marilyn Monroe’s gravesite at Westwood Village Memorial Park Cemetery ( stop # 63/1218 Glendon Ave. LA, CA 90024). It’s a great walk and there are many other notable celebrities buried here. There’s plenty of shopping nearby, including a Victoria’s Secret at 1046 Westwood Blvd. for any naughty lingerie you may need to pick up!
Red Line Route
If you choose to go the Red Route instead, which begins at the Chinese Theater (stop #15 ), there’s tons of stuff to get into starting right off Hollywood Blvd. ( stop #1 ), including The Hollywood Museum (1660 N Highland Ave. Hollywood, CA 90028 /www.thehollywoodmuseum.com) and The Hollywood Experience for great souvenirs and to purchase my book. Also, nearby is Bettie Page Clothing (6650 Hollywood Blvd Los Angeles, CA 90028) that sells great looking evening dresses and lingerie as well! Larry Edmunds Bookstore (6644 Hollywood Blvd Los Angeles, CA 90028) is a fantastic, old school bookstore that’s totally worth checking out, as it has lots of burlesque material and books on completely naughty Hollywood Starlets! There’s so much on Hollywood Blvd. that you must check in with my Naughty Girl’s Guide to Los Angeles for more information, which is all there at your fingertips!
On the same tour, you will be able to leisurely drive down Sunset Blvd. and be able to get off at the legendary Chateau Marmont Hotel ( stop #3 /8221 Sunset Blvd Los Angeles, CA 90046), which I speak of in my book. This classy den of decadence has been drawing the elite and celebrities of all kinds for decades. Be sure to find out why by stopping here for lunch or dinner and maybe taking in some drinks at the bar. Down the street you will also find the equally legendary Body Shop strip club (8250 Sunset West Hollywood, CA 90046), which is the perfect place to take in an afternoon strip tease!
While in West Hollywood, you will be close to other naughty locations like The Hustler Store ( stop #4 /8920 W Sunset Blvd West Hollywood, CA 90069) where you can delve into a massive selection of sex toys, lingerie and film. They also have a coffee bar there to relax and they have their own Walk of Porn outside. The London Hotel ( stop #5 /1020 N San Vicente Blvd West Hollywood, CA 90069) is close by as well and if you have the time, check it out and find out why it made my top ten sexiest hotels of L.A. in my travel guide.
As the tour progresses, it will make stops near La Cienega Blvd. ( stop #9 ) where the Trashy Lingerie (402 N La Cienega Blvd Los Angeles, CA 90048) store is located and also at Melrose Ave. ( stop #12 ) where you’ll find tons more shopping at your disposal with shops like Agent Provocateur (7961 Melrose Ave Los Angeles, CA 90046) and Kiki de Montparnasse (8481 Melrose Pl Los Angeles, CA 90069) both of which contain high-end, fun and sexy lingerie and swim wear.
If you travel east down Melrose, you can find lots and lots of other more inexpensive but fabulous clothing stores and boutiques to fulfill all of your naughty shopping needs! This is one of THE best streets in all of Los Angeles for shopping! And if you’re feeling like having a bit of genuine nightlife excitement you can head back to the beginning of the tour ( stop #15 ) and wander down to Sunset and Vine for a bit of people watching, as this is the Red Light District of Los Angeles where all the “working girls” are hard at work and play!
