Running from the Paparazzi Tour in Los Angeles

Off-beat tour that's good for your health

Looking for a way to work some workout time into your next vacation? Can't get enough of celebrity gossip? Thanks to a tour company you can now combine your health kick with your gossip addiction.


Full disclosure: we've never heard of this company, so we can't recommend them. But we thought it was a cool idea worth blogging about. And we love their logo - keeps you on the streets...

Cheryly Hines & the PaparazziCheryl Hines & the PaparazziHere's what we know. Tours are built around your needs - fitness level, size of your group and celebrity favorites - and can be as long as 6 miles. Their website says they offer fresh fruit, cupcakes and mineral water après-tour as well as a T-shirt for every participant. If you're not traveling with a group, you can choose from their off-the-shelf tours:

Running from the Paparazzi: A 4-mile tour that follows Wilshire Boulevard to Rodeo Drive and onto Robertson Boulevard. You'll need your shades while you duck around the flashing cameras of paparazzi and celebs in this famous neighborhood.

Stars of the Silver Screen: This tour takes you past the former homes of Marilyn Monroe, Jean Harlow, Jimmy Stewart, Lucille Ball and Jack Benny.

Pacific Pleasures Tours: You'll run along the beach in Santa Monica to the historic Pier and through Palisades Park. Bring your cameras - the view of the ocean from here is spectacular.

Marvelous Mansion Tours: You'll need to kick up the cardio as you run past the sprawling mansions of Lauren Bacall, Humphrey Bogart, Aaron Spelling and even the Playboy Mansion.

  • On 5 Nudist Resorts that Will Blow Your Mind, John Ruze said "Hi Julia, There is a brand new, very popular nudist resort you should think about reporting on in your next article about naturism. It is the New Terra Cotta Clothing Optional Resort and Spa in sunny Palm Springs, California.. The original Terra Cotta Inn was a fantastic nude resort. Repeat guests from around the world stayed there. TCI was sold in Nov 2015 and greatly missed. Well, this July 2017, it was revived at a new location in Palm Springs. The site is HotelTerraCotta.com. Guests are super happy. It's perfect for couples and girlfriend getaways. And Tom and Mary Clare from the original Terra Cotta Inn work with us, so it has the same relaxing, fun feel. "
  • On The Best Naturist Resorts in Ontario, Dennis Wilson said "Love the freedom feeling going nude . 1st time ever was at freedom fields ranch near Tamworth On,Hector & Eyvon are super hosts ,hope to visit this summer but want to learn of more places to visit."
  • On An Open Letter to Hotels Everywhere, Lynn said "I agree on the night light thing. Since hotels have none, I end up keeping the bathroom light on all night with the door ajar. Windows. I understand in the litigious US of A, hotels need to prevent folks from throwing themselves out the windows (or else the hotel could be sued?!!). Ok, fine. But for those of us who dislike A/C and only use it when absolutely necessary, can't we still have the option for some FRESH AIR? There ARE ways to allow windows to open up only so much, while at the same time preventing an entire body from throwing itself out the window. Bedskirts. Am I the only one who gets the skeevies when I see hotel beds with bedskirts that hit the floor? I always had images of food crumbs, bugs, and god only knows what...as being hidden behind that bedskirt. I'd much rather a bedskirt that's at least 2" above the (usually carpetted) floor. Towels. Can't we get nicer towels that don't feel like cardboard? Carpetting. Am I the only one who never walks barefoot in a hotel room ...esp when there's carpet? Blech. I'm sure those things are very rarely cleaned. "
