Despite the cheap gimmicky reputation, how could you not consider a visit to Hollywood boulevard. It is part of the experience being harassed by gents wanting to give you CD's of their latest Hip Hop creation, photo's with guys in character suits & people wanting to sell you the best deals on Hollywood tours. It all adds to the melting... More

It's fun it's very tourist - but hey it's a laugh...we went to Hooters too on Hollywood Blvd - if you have time do it. Lots of bizarre lookalikes - including a disabled Chewbacca and over weigh super heroes

What's the big deal? It's dirty, its crowded and everyone walks around with their heads down reading names on the stars. I guess you have to see it once but, once is enough for me.

What a disappointment! It's nasty, dirty, crowded; not at all what one would imagine it to be. Street people everywhere, and tourists crowding the sidewalks. Well, at least I can say that I was there!

I visited the walk of fame and first of all felt uncomfortable with the street people, beggars & general ambiance. It's more tacky and smelly and definitely dirty. Not really all it's meant to be. Either side felt like the ghetto rather than LA.

This was such a disappointment. The walk of fame was not the glittery, clean area I expected. It was a very dirty area. Many homeless laying along the buildings. People begging for drugs. The area looked very run down. I believe at one time this was a nice area just not sure what happened to it. Would not waste my... More

I found it one of those things (L.A has a lot of them) where you have to go and see to tick off the list while visiting - like the sign for instance. But its not overly impressive and it lacks so much character its ridiculous, there is literally no atmosphere what so ever. I think this is down to... More

Holywood boulevard was one of our targets in L.A. Parking is almost impossible, very hard to find empty lot. (Hint: go the the shopping mall 's underground garage next to the Chinese Theater) The crowd is walking very slowly on the pavement, everyone is seeking the names on the stars, very funny when collisions happen :)

Definitely stop and check it out when visiting LA and seeing the sights. See the Chinese theater, the Roosevelt Hotel, El Capitan (see a taping of Jimmy Kimmel). Be ready to deal with crowds, but still worth a short visit.
