Where to See Celebrities in LA – Oscar Awards Edition!

Read more to find out the secret celebrity hotspots in LA for Oscar Night!

Hollywood Boulevard


It’s no secret that Hollywood’s Biggest Night kicks off in the epicenter of Tinseltown, Hollywood Boulevard. For the past 18 years, the famous Dolby Theater on Hollywood Boulevard has hosted the Academy Awards, which are happening this year on February 9th, 2020. Walking around Hollywood Boulevard, the Hollywood Walk of Fame, and the TCL Chinese Theatre, you might spot such celebrities as Oscar nominee Joaquin Phoenix, who just purchased a home in the Hollywood Hills last year with his fiancee, Oscar nominee Rooney Mara. You also may spot Jimmy Kimmel popping into the El Capitan Theater across the street to host another groundbreaking Oscar Ceremony Bit. You can also catch celebs like Margot Robbie, Brad Pitt, Leo DiCaprio, Robert DeNiro, and more if you’re lucky enough to grab seats in the Academy Award Bleachers during the Academy Awards Red Carpet. Tickets book well in advance for this fun, pre-show ceremony, but if you’re lucky enough to snag a front row seat to the action, you might get your closeup on national TV! You can also spot a celebrity in Hollywood if you book either our Hollywood Bike Tour or our Hollywood Walking Tour, two great ways to both explore the top places to visit in Hollywood and to spot celebrities!

Beverly Hills


Beverly Hills is the best neighborhood in LA to spot celebrities, whether at the annual Vanity Fair Oscar after-party, or just dining, shopping, and walking on Rodeo Drive, Canon Drive, Beverly Drive, and other famous Beverly Hills Hotspots. Share a yummy dinner at Beverly Hills’ Avra Mediterranean Restaurant next to James Corden. Grab drinks on the roof of the Waldorf Astoria with Kelly Ripa. Hang out with Reese Witherspoon and Heidi Klum at the Beverly Hills Polo Lounge. Our Beverly Hills Bike Tour is also an excellent way to spot celebrities, while simultaneously getting a great workout and enjoying the California sunshine! This tour is also perfect for groups looking for team building activities in Los Angeles.

Runyon Canyon


We don’t need to tell you twice that we *love* hiking over here at Bikes and Hikes LAWe hike LA like it’s our job (it is,) and celebrities, who are just like us, love to hike, too. There’s no place more quintessential to the LA hiking scene than Hollywood’s Runyon Canyon, a picture perfect LA hiking trail located in the heart of Hollywood. Join us on our rise and shine Runyon Canyon Hiking Tour, and bring your best Lululemon and athleisure, as well as a camera. You could see Heidi Montag, Audrina Patridge, Josh Jackson, Amanda Seyfried, Justin Bieber, and more!

Griffith Park


Griffith Park, one of the top filming locations in LA, is one of the best spots to hike in the hills and see celebrities! Home of such movies as “La La Land,” “Rebel Without a Cause,” “Who Framed Roger Rabbit,” and more, this park also features miles of hiking trails packed with visitors and film stars alike. Spot some of the celebrities who live nearby and frequent Los Feliz, like Oscar/Grammy winner Mark Ronson, Oscar winner Angelina Jolie, and stars like Jon Hamm, Aaron Paul, Katy Perry, and Orlando Bloom!  Our brand new Hollywood Sign Experience is perfect for both sign and star gazing as you hike with us up behind the Hollywood Sign in Griffith Park. Our latest tour takes you closer to the sign than any other company in LA. Available as both a daily tour and a private, VIP Hollywood Sign Experience, this tour is perfect for explorers ages 6-96, and offers the best views of the Hollywood Sign in LA. You also may see celebrities in Griffith Park when you hike on our group Griffith Park Experience!



Miley loves to sing about it, and we love to experience it. Malibu is one of the most beautiful places to spot celebrities in LA, between its beautiful, surfer-packed shorelines, gorgeous hiking trails, and rugged mountain bike trails. Malibu is also filled with massive celebrity mansions and trendy restaurants, the perfect place to spot Taylor Swift and Selena Gomez having lunch, Jennifer Aniston strolling the beach, or Lady Gaga composing another Oscar Award winning collaboration with Bradley Cooper. We love the biking scene in Malibu, and are thrilled to offer our new group Malibu Mountain Bike Tour, the best way to get incredible ocean views and an even better workout. Join us on a group Malibu bike tour or Malibu hike tour today!
