Another Gotta To See Place!

We parked just around the corner so we were right within the action. Another of those places seen on the TV. Great to see the hand prints outside the Chinese theatre! 👍

We were expecting glitz and glamour... we didn't get it... If you stay in the Hollywood & Highland centre you'll be ok, thats clean, pretty and lovely but if you stray up or down the blvd you'll very, very quickly find dirty streets, seedy shops, homeless people and a near constant smell of stale urine. Basically if you go beyond... More

Not exactly exciting but it is one of those places where you go to just to say you have been. It is quite tacky and dirty and heaving with tourists. Good to see the likes of the walk of fame, Kodak Theatre, Manns Chinese Theatre etc.

Nothing special, except the shops (that u have anywhere). Those people posing as famous people are very annoying and definitely do not take a photo with them if u are not willing to pay.

I am not sure what people expect when they come to Hollywood Boulevard, maybe they hope to bump into a wandering movie star. I have been coming here now for 20 years and apparently it was a seedier area when I first visited in the mid 1990s. Its a tourist haven and where tourists go there is an ancillary industry....

Spent the first evening walking up and down the boulevard....reading the names on the stars. ...great to see so many stars of screen and music that I grew up with...also not forgetting the kodak theatre and Chinese theartre. ...bar and restaurants are a joy to be in and reasonably priced....

I guess I was expecting something nostalgic with old movie stars and stars along the walk and some neat history. What we found was strip clubs, tattoo parlors that were surrounded by the strong pungent odor of urine, vomit and old beer! The place is filled with homeless and aggressive tour guides trying to take you on their Los Angeles... More

Of course, nice to be there and tick it in your traveller diary. But fairly disappointing - somehow taking after Las Vegas style, but it is not Vegas! Absurdly expensive parkings, and not easy to find a lot. Quite aggressive asistants in most of the shops. Expensive food and everything else. The best thing there was a Starbucks near Chinese...

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.
