Is that...wait...no really...yes, it's Matthew McConaughey! What's a trip to La-la land without a celebrity sighting (or seven?) From grocery stores to hotels to coffee shops, we've nailed down spots where you're guaranteed to bump into your tabloid favorites.

Hotel Bel Air

A maze of walkways shaded by foliage lend to the private and tranquil air of the Hotel Bel-Air—the go-to location for the very famous to take up residence out of the limelight. Past celebs to briefly call the hotel home include Grace Kelly, Angelina Jolie, Nicole Kidman and, most famously, Marilyn Monroe. Even the industry parties held at the hotel are elegant and understated—no dancing on tables here. The restaurant serves up Wolfgang Puck's California cuisine—the Nancy Reagan salad is our fave!
