Lights, Camera, Action! Your guide to the motion picture capitol of the world.

They call it “La La Land,” and for good reason — because the lines between work and play are blurred. Burbank/Los Angeles are famously known as the motion picture capitol of the world. Hundreds to thousands of movies are shot here every single year. And that means it’s easy to spot the hottest celebrities mingling among the masses. So be sure to have your camera ready! If glitz and glamour aren’t your thing, visitors still have plenty of other options, like Venice Beach, Disneyland, the Hollywood Walk of Fame and more! So start your Thrifty car rental and buckle up. It’s going to be a wild ride!

TV studios and shows

Be an A-list wannabe for a weekend. Get in your Burbank rental car and jet on over to Warner Brothers Studio Tours. There you can tour iconic TV shows and movie sets. Or take it a step further and participate as a member of the guest audience for shows like Conan, Dr. Phil, Ellen Degeneres, Jimmy Kimmel, Jeopardy and more. They all film in the Burbank/Los Angeles area. Be sure to call for tickets before your arrival — they go quick!

Universal Studios Hollywood

There will be no shortage of thrills during your stay in Burbank. Get the ultimate Hollywood experience at Universal Studios. Come face to face with King Kong in a 360 3-D experience or explore the mysteries of Hogwarts™ castle in the Wizarding World of Harry Potter. Have a cow with Bart from the Simpsons or take on a tidal wave with the explosive Waterworld® experience.

The Hollywood Sign

It’s the universal metaphor for ambition, glitz, glamour and a dream called H-O-L-L-Y-W-O-O-D. The Hollywood sign is visible from all over the city, so use your rental car rental to get the best vantage point. Note that driving right up to the sign itself is illegal; however, you can park at one of the designated viewing centers and either take a shuttle or hike the trails.

Madame Tussauds Hollywood

Get up close and personal with real Hollywood celebrities ... that happen to be made of wax. Park your Thrifty car rental at Madame Tussaud’s Hollywood so you can square up to A-listers like Leonardo DiCaprio, Madonna, Steven Spielberg, David Beckham and more.

TCL Chinese Theater

Plan a visit to this 75-year-old cornerstone of Hollywood history. Visitors can take pictures with over 200 handprints of Hollywood celebrities, plus other fun surprises, like an imprint of Groucho Marx’s cigar, the facial profile of John Barrymore and the legs of Betty Grable.

Starline Tours

If you need a break from doing all the driving in your Thrifty rental car, let someone else take the wheel with Starline Tours. Check out the homes of Hollywood’s hottest stars while cruising around in an air-conditioned bus. See where celebrities like Katy Perry, Bruno Mars, Tom Cruise, Sandra Bullock and Bruce Willis call home.
