Don't go out of your way to do this tourist attraction. We only walked through here for 30minutes because we were in the area and trying to kill time. The street hawkers were so annoying and pushy and theres not much to see. We did enjoy In-N-Out burger around the corner though!

Tourist expect so much from this attraction. But in reality except for a few decent restaurants; a few OK stores, there isn't much here. Many celebrity look-a-likes that are willing to the anything for you to get a photo taken with them, very cheesy gift shops (though you can find some good deals); a lot of bad restaurants that mainly...

The show tapes at 6840 Hollywood Blvd which is next to the El Captain theatre and across the street from Hollywood and Vine shopping center. I requested tickets in November for the last taping of 2014 on 12/18/14. Tickets said to arrive by 3:30 (but recommended 2pm).. we got there at 2:15 and already 4 people in line... so very... More

A must see in LA, but once is enough. The street 'entertainers' and sales people do become annoying pretty quickly.

Good to walk down and see the stars, and some of the theatres. Expect to see dozens of people trying to sell Hollywood tours or scam you, but apart from that very nice.

Hollywood Boulevard really is nothing special. Overly crowded, not one decent shop, the name is the only attraction. Did have a good meal at Mel's Diner just off the boulevard though. You soon tire of the stars.

Its a very long road to walk up and apart from the Chinese Theatre and the Stars in the pavement a lot less interesting than I thought it might be. Mostly jammed with tourists and way less interesting than other places in LA. Go if you have to cross it off the bucket list and you have time to kill,... More
