Visitors of Burbank are going to be surprised by how many wonderful places and things to do it has to offer.  A backstage tour at Warner Bros. and NBC studios, an outdoor concert at the Starlight Bowl and a diner in downtown, are only few of them.  The top place to see in Burbank surely is the Warner Bros. Studio.  The tour encompasses the back-lot, the Warner Village, the sound stages and the museum.  The famous movie studio, built in 1928, is the birthplace of some of the world’s favored movies and cartoons of all times.  Next is the Pantages Theater, an example of Art Deco architecture that offers the opportunity to see some of the famous Broadway’s shows.
The next stop on your agenda should be the Los Angeles Zoo and Botanical Gardens, which has more than 250 species of animals, including some very rare ones.  The Hollywood Sign is another landmark that connects Burbank with the biggest film industry in the world.  Situated on Mount Lee, the sign is an American cultural icon, known all around the globe.
The best thing to do in Burbank is to enjoy the Santa Monica Pier, which is a wonderful entertainment center featuring restaurants, amusement parks, history and photo galleries and many other fun activities.  The popular amusement park Universal Studios Hollywood will allow you to visit old movie sets and take movie-themed rides with 3D and 4D effects.  The Griffith Park, on the other hand, offers a different and more natural experience.   It is one of the largest urban parks in the world and offers a closer look to the wildlife and nature in its purest state.  The ballpark is great for hiking, sports, or simply relaxing in a serene natural atmosphere.
Late at night you can take a walk on the Hollywood Walk of Fame and look for the name of your favored artist, written on one of the big stars there.
