Basically, going on Hollywood Boulevard means being bothered by a thousand people trying to get you on their tour and giving you pamphlets while trying to escape the crazy-looking stone guy pointing his water gun right at your face. I went there because I felt like I had to being in LA but I would not recommend it to anyone... More

We didn't like this part of LA, or much else in LA really. The stars on the pavement are OK, as are the signatures outside the Chinese Theatre, and you can see the Hollywood sign from here. That's it. The rest is cheap tat, hustling, some rather frightening people, crowds and crowds of people. Hot, stuffy, smelly. You are approached... More

So the stars are nice enough but the rest is terrible. Homeless and crazies on every street / block. Fighting, begging and people that really need help everywhere! Tacky shops selling rubbish, sex shops and people dressed up asking for money for pictures. I very rarely give bad reviews and I have traveled extensively in USA, South America, Europe, Asia...

If you like watching people, this is the place to be. There are a wide variety of people who come to this area to view and take part is the attractions in this area. This is a movie buff's must. There are star imitators galore, many with amazing talents performing free snippets of shows for a donation. There are many... More

Was really looking forward to seeing Hollywood Boulevard - what a let down!!! We walked from the Hollywood and Vine station towards the main tourist area and couldn't believe what a dump it was!! Tramps, homeless, beggars and pushy tour salesmen. The area stank of urine and there was human faeces on the pavement. It was good to see the... More

No trip to LA would be complete without wandering along Hollywood Boulevard to admire the stars on the pavement and the Chinese cinema etc. It was very busy when we visited though, which made it difficult to actually see many of the stars on the pavement, and there are lots of annoying tour guides trying to sell you tickets on...

Not what I expected. The stars on the sidewalk were everywhere and It was very dirty. I pictured it as being an upscale area but it seemed to be a beggars haven. It seemed like they knew the tourist & there was a scammer at every turn. Not to mention the many homeless people with their Starbucks cups begging for... More

You cannot visit Los Angeles unless you go down to Hollywood Boulevard. The celebrity impersonators are a bonus. Some of them are very nice, but you do have to compensate them. A must for that one time experience on the Boulevard. Stay with a crowd as long as you can, as many questionable people linger around.

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.
