Walking down Hollywood Blvd to find the stars from your favorites. Lots of people dressed as Characters from our favorite movies, will take photos for a tip. Chinese Theater, Hard Rock cafe and lots more to see. Good for a nice stroll in LA.

It was so much fun and we were enjoying the whole experience up until half naked girls started harrasing us. They had no panties on and families were walking past. I have never witnessed anything like it. I was so dissappointed in the whole trip down Hollywood Blvd at the end of the day. Lots of "protesters" camping on the... More

We purchased a tour, that's office was behind the walk of fame. We got there around 8am, got a starbucks and walked around, took pictures, saw the stars. When we returned from our tours in the afternoon, wall to wall people. I can't imagine pics taken in the afternoon could be taken without strangers feet in the picture. I was... More

Walking down the walk of fame is quite the experience, especially on the weekends. There are so many people performing near Hollywood/Highland, the businesses are really sightly, and the stars are home to individual statements. What I thought was really nice was that a tribute to Chris Cornel was left on his star by a fan just after his tragic... More

Seriously, love it or loathe it, would anyone come to LA and not check out the iconic Hollywood Boulevard? I enjoyed it and the crowds, CD peddlars and superheroes offering photos along the main drag didn't bother me. It's all part of the experience and easy to ignore given you have so much else to stimulate you especially if you... More

This is the reason you come to Hollywood. Yes, it's very touristy and very crowded, but if you plan ahead and appreciate where you're at, you'll enjoy you're time here. A must-see when visiting Hollywood.

Hollywood Blvd is over-rated and so not LA. Just a tourist trap. So many other wonderful things to see and do in LA. Skip this one.

Too busy to get anywhere close to some of the Hollywood stars. Hot and full of pushy tourists and touts. It's very difficult to soak up the Hollywood history here which is a real shame.

Staying in Hollywood

Neighbourhood Profile
Hollywood undoubtedly conjures up images of movie stars and high-end lifestyles, and to this day, tourists flock here from around the world to see the iconic Hollywood Walk of Fame, Chinese Theatre and to catch a glimpse of the famed Hollywood sign up close. Celebrity impersonators and crowds give these areas the feeling of an amusement park while many clubs and hotels fill up around the weekends for late-night partying - the Hollywood club scene is a haven for thumping music and table-side bottle service. But parties aren’t the only way to enjoy this area, many visitors come to the neighborhood to sit back with a picnic to watch a performance at the Hollywood Bowl and those looking to stay fit trek along nature trails in the Hollywood hills and in Griffith Park.
