Hollywood Boulevard is a kind of raunchy long street through Hollywood. There are some famous places along the route and if in LA and interested in the street, then by all means drive down it and explore.

i found this place not to expectations and constant harrassment from impersonators and tour drivers summoning business,,,, although it was nice to visit and some shops were great,, the star walk on the boulevade was pretty cool and some great eaterys.

We were very excited about our trip to LA and especially Hollywood Boulevard. What a disappointment! the whole street was dirty and disgusting. There were a tone of homeless people and beggars followed by other people trying to sell you stuff. The neighborhood is run down and many buildings are empty. We excepted much more and only stayed about an... More

We were genuinely shocked when we looked down and saw all the stars on the ground. This place is full of homeless people and is really run down. We didn't stay long as we didn't feel safe and felt it was just pretty crappy. Thought one homeless dude was dead, laying facedown in what I presume was his urine. Slowly... More

Loved Hollywood Boulevard - just to go and stroll round and see all the stars names on the ground and the people. Such an atmosphere - everyone seemed to enjoy it. Lovely for young and old alike. We loved it. Been there a few times already and go back every time we go to LA. Lots to see and places... More

It's great to see all the stuff that's makes Hollywood, there is only one concern I have is the amount of homeless people hanging about, other than that worth a visit

Maybe if I saw a celebrity I would have enjoyed it more. I thought since it was an upscale neighborhood that it would be clean. I was wrong. There was trash on the ground. Crackheads and people trying to sell you a tour, CD, or club event. The stars go on forever. We took a tour and stopped to eat... More

As a few reviewers here have said - nothing like you see in the movies. This place has no soul. It's dirty, dated, not well looked after. There are people begging for money along the street. Really sad. So many tourists everywhere. If it used to be glamorous it unfortunately has lost all of its charm. Don't expect much!

Take a long walk up the street, see the stars, see the footprints and handprints, visit a theatre or two (chinese theatre a favourite) and then probably go. I found half a day here to be more than enough. It was good to see but I soon got irritated. There are the "tour guides" trying to sell u a pricey... More

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.
