Ideas on things to do in Burbank

Some friends and I are going to the Ellen show in October, and we wanted to know what else can we do in Burbank? We will be there for the Ellen show on Thursday and all day Friday and Sat. any suggestions. We also want to go to Beverly Hills do you think that would be a good idea?

You are close enough to Universal Studios to look around.

You can do an Avenue of the Stars drive around Beverly Hills. I'd go and check it out. You can go to the pier at Santa Monica afterwards - see the houses in Malibu.

You can bike along the beach on a tandem bike - there's a bike/roller blading path.

You can also do exercises on the exercise rings in Santa Monica on the beach - Muscle Beach. Surf, get strong!

You might also want to visit the Getty Museum.

I live in burbank...There isn't much to do here, but Hollywood is down the street basically.

I would suggest checking out Hollywood Blvd if you haven't been there. If you go down Olive (this is a street by the studios) it turns into barham...make a left on Cahuenga and that turns into Highland and bam! your there.

Venice beach is a chill place to go also...don't go to go in the water though...just for the Venice Strip.

If you want to go to a nice beach I'd suggest Zuma.

Disneyland, Magic Mtn, and Universal Studios aren't far from Burbank either.

Beverly Hills is boring unless you want to shop for expesive clothing and crap.

If you do just want to do something that is in burbank and you like Champange Brunches, head up to the Castaway or to the Smoke House on a Sunday...either one is pretty good.

We just got back from the Ellen show and stayed in Burbank. I would recommed renting a car. We went into Hollywood and took the Starline tour of movie stars homes. If you do that, make sure you go on one that is not enclosed. We were suppose to be on the double decker tour bus, but ened up on in an airconditioned van. We couldn't see alot of stuff. We also went to Santa Monica beach.
