Even though this famous recording studio is not open to the public, it is worth a visit to gaze at its unique circular design, which looks like a stack of old 45s.

Swung by as a part of my day-long tour. The building is a site to behold. It's circular structure is a first of its kind and represents a stack of records on a record player.

A must do photo opportunity when you're in Hollywood, especially for a Beatles fan like myself. It's not hard to find as the Walk Of Fame stars go past, with the solo Beatles stars being right outside. Make the effort

This iconic Round building was nice to see, and snap a couple pics. I don't believe tours of the building are offered, but it was cool to see a piece of history.

Stopped by this building on a tour. It was fun to see but that is really all you can do is see it from the outside. The tour guide told some interesting history and stories about it.

We saw it from a wide variety of perspectives on our travels around L.A. - and always appreciated seeing it. Charm, character and a whole lot of history.

Hollywood undoubtedly conjures up images of movie
stars and high-end lifestyles, and to this day,
tourists flock here from around the world to see the
iconic Hollywood Walk of Fame, Chinese Theatre and to
catch a glimpse of the famed Hollywood sign up close.
Celebrity impersonators and crowds give these areas
the feeling of an amusement park while many clubs and
hotels fill up around the weekends for late-night
