Nothing fancy.

Typical LA dirty streets, lots of homeless people begging. There are shops and a few places to eat along the boulevard nothing I would rush out to see again!

Hollywood Boulevard was a nice concept with all the stars, but when I visited it was not as grand as I imagined it to be. It's dirty and in bad shape.

I am absolutely shocked by the state of Hollywood Boulevard, especially as I read online recently that LA has done a lot in recent years to clean up its streets! I have never seen so many homeless / beggars and of all the cities I have visited in the world I felt the most unsafe here. We parked on a... More

What can I say about the Boulevard but it is a true American street. Full of life, full of possibilities. The Dolby, El Capitan, Grauman's The Walk of Fame, and yes Hollywood and Vine, so divine. I love it all, it is my home, my passion, my love. Hollywood and Los Angeles is the most beautiful city in the world... More

A lot of walking and interesting side streets. Found it to be like any other "MIAN STREET" except for the STARS on the sidewalk. Not something I would go out of my way for again.

While visiting friends in Rancho Cucamonga we decided to take the Metrolink and Metro into Las Angeles. While we were there we decided to go down to Hollywood Blvd to see the TCL Chinese Theater, the Walk of Fame and the Hollywood sign. When we arrived it wasn't as crowded and overwhelming as I thought it would be, but I... More

I came to Hollywood Boulevard and spent about two hours here and that was enough. It is pretty touristy but you have to see it at least once because you always hear about it. People will try and sell you tours up and down the street but if you kindly decline and move on its not too bad. I wouldnt... More

After many trips to LA for business and family, I realized we had not seen Hollywood Boulevard. The Hollywood Walk of Fame and TCL Chinese Theatre were worth the visit to this iconic little stretch of Hollywood. My husband reluctantly obliged and we went, but he wouldn't visit again. Most visitors probably would visit Hollywood Boulevard just once. It was... More

The Walk of Fame is full of fame and yet when walking along the street I can't feel the thrill - it's just a name! Could be better when you don't expect that much:)

Dirty, trashed out, full of people getting on your face for money, that be "artists" or characters. On the upside I did saw baby blue's star and his spot in front of the Chinese theatre which I was pretty much kicked out from just because I had dogs with me...

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.
