I've never really been into celebrity worship but went here some time ago because of the hype. If this place was supposed to be a tourist "attraction", the city leaders really need to visit other REAL tourist destinations. This was truly one of the most tasteless, disgusting, creepy places full of creepy and freaky people and as a family of... More

Rather disappointing, apart from the walk of stars the street is full of adult shops and dumps. Don't expect the grand elegance you might think when associated with LA. Spend maybe 2 hrs max but not too long because you'll only wish to leave

We have this vision of what we see on the academy awards, then we got there and we were speechless, we had a conversation the first night with a local bar tender who lived there and he said that during the Academy Awards they pay or bribe all the homeless people to leave, clean it all up and portray the...

Loved seeing the poppers like Midnite(Black/white manniquin) and the Silverman. Snap and Gizmo were great as well. I went back many times there on the corner of Highlands. The cheap shops with t-shirts had some good things but i always think of the poor people in countries where there are sweatshops and i avoid buying anything. There was also a... More

Great to see something as iconic as Hollywood boulevard and the attractions it has to offer, but it's actually quite tacky and you will be constantly harassed by street entertainers. Felt a bit seedy in some bits. Worth a walk along to see the stars, but wouldn't come to LA and see it more than once

You pull over along the way get out of your car and just walk along. Look at all the stars on the walkway and the shops behind them some are nice and some are

*I actually went December 2006 and July 2013, they make you put a date* I liked seeing Hollywood Boulevard. Except for the religious groups handing you flyers. And the escort services handing you flyers. It gets a bit annoying. But there is a lot to see here. I would recommend going here.

From New York and I've been to Los Angeles a couple of times. Hollywood feels like a rip off of Times Square. There isn't really an attraction that brings you there again and again. Other than the Chinese Theater, it's like any normal street with shops and restaurants. See it once and you won't need to come back.

If you love the lights and glamour of tourist central, then this is for you. I defy anyone to walk more than 10 paces without stopping to point to a name on the sidewalk and comment on it. They even put out the red carpet for the night my friend and I arrived there (they tried to make out someone... More
