Not far from the hustle, bustle, and general madness that is Los Angeles lies Marina del Rey, a refreshingly laid back waterfront city. Idyllic weather and beautiful scenery provide the backdrop for sailing its surrounding waters, we're hard-pressed to find reasons why you wouldn't want to hit the high seas yourself.
In addition to sailing, there is a myriad of options for seagoing adventures depending on your taste. Get in touch with your inner sea captain this summer with Marina de Rey's top activities:
What is up with celebrities and extreme activities? Yesterday, we had Cindy Crawford doing some indoor skydiving and today, we learn that Zac Efron spent the weekend bungee jumping in Whistler, during a break from the filming of his new movie, The Life and Death of Charlie St. Cloud. People magazine has the pertinent details:
With a broad smile and no hesitation, the light-footed crooner lept off a bridge over a raging river – and he did it gracefully, of course. He even managed an acrobatic back flip as he went down. "Zac really loved his jump, he seemed to be having a really good time and was excited to make his jump, but he only jumped once," an employee of Whistler Bungee said.
Perhaps he only jumped once because it's rather expensive? Whistler Bungee charges $120CAD for the first jump and $50 for any additional jumps. Any of your friends who want to come along and watch will have to pay $10. The company does offer shuttle service from Whistler Village to the bungee site at Cheakamus Canyon and first-time jumpers get a free t-shirt.
Looking for more adventure in Whistler without having to jump off a bridge high above running water? Consider snowmobiling or ziplining. PS. We kinda hate how good Zac looks even while bungee jumping. Damn, young kids!

Vinny Chase is set to re-launch his career after scoring a role in a new Martin Scorsese flick, and that means the boys are back on the Hollywood circuit. We haven’t heard any reports of Entourage filming far afield this season, which is good news for those who watch the show less for the celebrity sightings than for the tutorials on what’s hot in the LaLa-land club scene.
The cast has been spotted in recent months at Villa Lounge—an uber-sleek Melrose Heights club outfitted to look like a plush Hollywood Hills Mansion (good luck getting in if you’re not actually with a celebrity)—and Urth Café, which should provide a nice little bump for that trendy West Hollywood organic coffee shop. Of course, those in it for the celeb sightings won’t be disappointed either as L’il Wayne, Tom Brady, Zac Efron, and LeBron James have all been spotted recently on the Entourage set.
It seems as if the work is never done for our favorite celebs -- and the commute can be nasty: From Hawaii to Australia, even they have to go where the work is. Still, we wish our day job consisted of such travel perks like the ones these celebs get to experience.
Tween sensations Zac Efron and Taylor Swift hit up the red carpet in Syndey while the more mature TomKat hit up Tokyo at a premiere for "Valkyrie." Matt Damon was cycling in Cape Town and Jessica Alba checked out the fashions in Paris. Ah yes, and speaking of Paris...Paris Hilton was shooting a perfume ad in Hawaii.

Step aside, Super World Travelers! Zac Efron and Vanessa Hudgens celebrated the Japanese premiere of "High School Musical 3: Senior Year" at Tokyo's Prince Hotel just days after arriving, like the Pitt-Jolie clan, at Narita International Airport.
Will all this celebrity publicity boost Japan's ailing tourism industry? The number of foreign visitors to the island plummeted 24 percent last December alone, despite a 0.1 percent increase for 2008 overall.
Locally, 2009 started with a bang as over 99 million people celebrated the New Year at Shinto shrines all over Japan, some undoubtedly to offer prayers for economic success this year. And a just-announced joint tourism initiative with Hong Kong should bolster flagging numbers later on in the year. But if Japan's looking for spokeskids, they could do worse than the Efron-Hudgens team. After all, if they're not employed by Disney any more, the kids might appreciate the work.

"High School Musical 3: Senior Year" has already been out for a few weeks here in the US (including two weeks at the top of the box office), but that doesn't mean Zac Efron and Vanessa Hudgens get a break. Their international fans calling, the once-lightfooted couple trudges through security at LAX this weekend en route to Australia, where the movie is scheduled to open December 4.
Playing travel agent for a second, it's likely the kids are skipping Russia, Romania and Turkey where the movie opens this Friday. We're thinking they're headed to South America next since the flick opens in Chile next week and Argentina and Venezuela the week after. If they go back to Europe at all, it'll be the Netherlands, where fans wait for their filmed revelations on December 10. And don't forget about Japan! Maybe that trip can be like a "High School Reunion" in February.

"High School Musical 3" star Zac Efron is forced to confront his legacy as a teen heartthrob at Pearson International Airport in Toronto.
"HSM3" topped the box office last weekend for the second week in a row, besting a host of Halloween offerings from "The Haunting of Molly Hartley" to "Saw V." Youth, hope and optimism beats grim determination and appeals to fear? We've never seen that before.

Why are we so obsessed with "High School Musical: Senior Year"? We're not really sure, especially since we weren't one of the crazy children who ordered advance tickets weeks in advance.
Certainly the adorable moppets in the Disney juggernaut would never stoop to posting about that cute boy from the school play on Craigslist--and they'd be even less inclined to do it in scrubbed-clean Salt Lake City--but the rest of us, well, we're all in this together:

It's hard to grow up: "High School Musical: Senior Year" is in theaters everywhere and Zac Efron and Vanessa Hudgens may never play teenagers again. (Or at least, not teens in love; the trailer for Efron's next flick "17 Again," in which he plays a younger version of Matthew Perry, hit the Internets this week.)
Nikki Finke of LA Weekly predicts HSM3 will top $40 million to win the box office this weekend against "Saw 18: Sharpening the Saw" and "Angelina Jolie Loves Babies and Hats." "This is why serious screenwriters weep," Finke says of Disney's record-breaking fall and the success of "Beverly Hills Chihuahua."
As they trudge to their private car from baggage claim at LAX, Efron and Hudgens probably aren't thinking about putting on an elaborate show for the paparazzi to celebrate the love of their characters Troy and Gabriella. They've been living out of a suitcase for two weeks in service to the almighty Disney, and now it's time to go home and make some Movies of the Week. Such a spectacle will not be seen again--at least for the next three weeks. Then "Twilight" opens. Thank God, something new to obsess over.
The High School Musical franchise strikes again today with its third installment: Senior Year. The Wildcats are facing college, and Troy and Gabriella realize they're going to be separated. The next logical step? Stage a cheeseball musical of course! Just exactly how our senior year ended....
Grab the nearest teen you owe a favor to and drop them off at the theater. We're not sure we could stomach all the singing and dancing, but we hear it's quite catchy and lives up to its musical name!
Where is the Wildcats fictional high school? In Salt Lake City, Utah, at East High School and Murray High where much of the film was shot. Read on for some cool things to check out in SLC...
Zac Efron, Vanessa Hudgens, Corbin Bleu (destined to be voted Most Changed from the original "High School Musical") and Ashley Tisdale hold up celebratory cookies at the German premiere of "High School Musical: Senior Year" in Munich over the weekend. Director Kenny Ortega, whose biggest credit before helming the series was creating the beloved box-office bomb "Newsies," also walked the red carpet with them (but he was cookie-less).
The premiere was held at the Mathäser Filmpalast which later this month will host the domestic premiere of "Hellboy 2" and the new James Bond flick, "Ein Quantum Trost."
Sounds so much better than "Quantum of Solace," right?
Vanessa Hudgens and Zac Efron board a private jet to France to promote their forthcoming movie, "High School Musical 3."
France is just one of several countries which will see HSM3 before we will, but only by a little. So if you're a very wealthy teen with access to a private jet, fly to France, the UK, Egypt or the Philippines to catch its release on October 22.
That way you can brag to all your friends on return that you were the first to find out whether Troy and Gabriella go through with the experiment to clone each other so they never have to be apart. (Spoiler?)
