A little known, peaceful hike area is the area just below the Hollywood sign, in the area known as Lake Hollywood. It is the area surrounding the Hollywood resovior buiit by Mr. Mullholand.

Hollywood isnt what i expected, the walk of fame is just stars on the street, not really an attraction. we did a 2 hour tour including beverly hills which was good. Hollywood looks buzzing of a night plenty of bars and restaurants and things to do

There is a lot to see in Hlooywood and it is nothing like the movies, for that experience you need to go to Rodeo drive, or Bel Air. Hollywood is more for the tourist or local who knows the good bars. Take a camera since there are a lot of photo options. Plan to see a show at the chinese... More

I had a lot of high expectations for my first trip to Hollywood. I thought it was going to be an amazing experience. I was slightly wrong. While Hollywood is interesting, it was not quite what I expected it to be. It also was a lot dirtier than I had expected such a famous tourist destination to be. You won't... More

Things have changed -- Hollywood is much cleaner and comfortable than it was back in the 80s. Definitely worth the visit.

Hollywood sounds great when you are not from California but when you are from CA you know to stay away. There is very little here and it is a bit dangerous.

The view from the spot we got to visit with a vegas tour was amazing! would highly recommend this! Not just the view of the sign, just the whole place. I couldn't stop taking pictures or videos, far too beautiful.

Back in 1995, I saw downtown Hollywood and it looked sleazy at the edges, just like Times Square in the 1970s. In 2015, I revisited and was I surprised! It is much safer and cleaner.

Staying in Hollywood

Neighbourhood Profile
Hollywood
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.
