I liked all the entertainment on the sidewalk and shops. Lots of places to eat and lots of tour buses available. Very crowded and busy. Lots to look at.

Do not waste your time visiting Hollywood boulevard, the stars on the road are just that, stars put in with peoples names on. The road is littered with wanna be actors dressed as famous people, they smile and be polite and ask if you want a photo and then demand money. There have also been cases of these people stealing...

We were there 8/21/2014 and we wanted to see Grahman's Chinese Theatre and the Hollywood Walk of Fame. We parked at the mall on Hollywood Boulevard and window shopped. Then we went out onto Hollywood Boulevard to Limited Express store so I could buy a summer dress. Hollywood Boulevard was busy with pedestrians and tourists. There were many people dressed... More

I have visited Hollywood Boulevard several times. Things have certainly improved in the last decade. It is one of those places that everyone should visit once, with Graurman's Chinese Theatre being the highlight. The only reason we visited this area on this trip was to see Jimmy Kimmel Live. It might not be on someone's to do list if it's... More

So obviously we were keen to do the obligatory stop in LA at Hollywood boulevard see the stars and Chinese theatre but were actually quite disappointed on arrival. Yes we saw the stars yes we saw the theatre but it all just seemed a bit grubby and the area not to nice, not quite the Hollywood glam we were expecting.... More

Is a nice Blvd for walking around and do some shopping. You even can see some actors and actresses walking all around or giving a speech for getting their star on the walking fame. You can also be part on a film if you are lucky to be there in the right time.

Our boys wanted to walk down Hollywood Boulevard and see the flash cars and the expensive shops. It was a nostalgic experience identifying all the stops from movie "Pretty Woman".

Not sure what guide took me to the shopping mall there, but that is the solution if you want to get a picture of the Hollywood sign and combine it with the walk of fame. Everything in one spot and fair parking as well that will get even cheaper if you buy something in one of the many shops. I... More

A good place to roam around especially if you are alone.... Hard Rock Cafe is one of the best joints to eat drink and hang out.. Lot of shops to pick souvenirs.... overall a must visit if you are in LA or surroundings

Staying in Hollywood

Neighborhood 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.
