'I don't really fit neatly into any one category. I'm just thrilled that I'm able to do exactly what I want to do for a living. It never ceases to amaze me that I get to be 'Weird Al' full-time.'
These are the sage words of the accomplished comedian and former resident of Paramount known as "Weird Al" Yankovic. Like him, this city is built on the power of Hollywood stardom and existing in a world where stars are everywhere and walk around like everyday people. Paramount is as much a part of the Hollywood movie industry as most other cities that surrounds the movie Mecca and you can see this exemplified in most Paramount hotels.

Though Paramount is very much a part of the sort of movie making machine, the town itself has its own culture and attractions and some of the most popular can be reached from most Paramount hotels with ease. One of the must-see attractions for fans of ice skating is the Paramount Iceland.While it may seem counter-intuitive that Ice skating would be popular in a city known for the sun there is no shortage of fun to be had here year'“around. Another fun thing to do in Paramount is to pay a visit to the Paramount Drive-In Theatres. This is a blast from the past and one of the last drive-in theaters in operation anywhere.
