Did not spend long here, I think I expected more but in real life it's just a street full of cheap souvenir shops dirty sidewalks...I think I did expect much more from seeing this iconic place on TV but 10 minutes was well enough time...good to drive through Beverly Hills though

It's ok. Pay for parking, then walk. Overcrowded 24/7. "Street performers" are fun. Nothing really awesome. Maybe it's because I was born and raised in L.A......but was never really impressed.

Never once have I seen this place empty. So unless your shooting interviews for a TV show, avoid at all costs. First timers, take a peak but hopefully from a moving car as it is not that special.

We only had a couple of hours to fill so caught the metro out to Hollywood Highland station and walked 2 mins from there. Very touristy and really only a street with stars and names in it... The odd character like Batman wandering around on the street. A few tourist shops and restaurants. It seemed to lack character and whilst... More

We kept our time on Hollywood Blvd to the busy two blocks near the Chinese Theater. Touristy shops line both sides of the boulevard that can be enjoyed by all ages. A few blocks away it is dirty and the shops are not family friendly. There are characters of all kinds walking the boulevard. The later in the evening, the... More

Yes, there are famous designers' store located here but I think that's what saves this area. Even though it's not as rundown as the streets on either side (well maintained, at least), there is no available parking and there are so many people just hanging out on the sidewalks and streets. I don't get it. Most of these stores are... More

We started at a far end of the Boulevard which didn't help. It was dirty, it was grimey, their was no glitz or glamour. I was shocked and pretty disgusted. Sadly the pavements hosting the famous stars on the walk of fame were in dire condition in some areas and cracked, and filthy. I felt it was akin to an... More

You always see it on tv, so it was pretty cool to actually be there and see it for yourself. It was much different than I had anticipated. I thought there would be more people.

If you are expecting glitz and glam when visiting Hollywood - you are in for a shock. The state and amount of homeless people is heartbreaking. The obvious presence of urine - crossing footpaths from store fronts over the stars is disgusting. So you can imagine the smell in the heat of the day. My advice to first time visitors... More

Staying in Hollywood

Neighborhood Profile
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.
