So we weren't expecting the Boulevard to be quite as run down as it was. It felt a bit seedy and we wouldn't have liked to be there too late into the evening. There was pleasant street acts on during the day and it was a bustling place to be but not somewhere I'd be when it gets too late

I'm glad I finally got to see Hollywood boulevard, it's a place every first timer to Los Angeles should check out. Lots of people in costumes, and cd hawkers adding to an already crowded area. It's not a waste of a trip though, plenty of stuff to see if you want to . And plenty of shopping.

Lots to do in this area and can be a fun full day. You can ck out your favorite actor's star on the blvd, the famous Chinese theater, lots of restaurants to choose from and people watch, shopping, the Dolby theater, etc.

This was a great tour by hop on hop off LA, we visited all famous points in Holywood and Berverly hills. I would recommend a visit if your resource permit, we had lunch on a Rodeo drive, hoping to meet some of the movie stars.

This place is nice to visit but it is not what I expected. it is old, run down and dirty. not worth the time to go back once it has been done once.

It is ok to go, it has museums, Chinese theater, cinemas, restaurants, etc but it is very busy. I believe you should visit if visiting hollywood to tick it out of your list.

It's a super busy street, with a lot souvenir shops, theaters and tourist attractions, I'm sure that on Oscar night is different, but on a regular day is just dirty and super loud. I was shocked when I strolled around this area, a lot of homeless people (I was harassed by one asking money, and then cursing me when I... More

Hollywood Boulevard, where do you start? Yes, it's on the 'must see' list, so you have to see it. Okay, in summary, too many people, lots of impersonators, drab and dirty sidewalks, tacky shops, two theaters, and the most depressing Starbucks we have ever visited. And that, as they say, is that. Been there, forget the t-shirt.

Hollywood. Most people have a mental image of Hollywood, or at least what they think Hollywood is like. Glitz, glamour, movie stars. Yet nothing could really be further from the truth. Hollywood Boulevard is a combination of souvenir shops, retail shops, wax museums, carnival sideshow, and huckster alley. Yes, there is history here, and yes – Hollywood is much, much... More

We saw Hollywood Boulevard both during the day and at night. Though it is neat to see it all lit up at night, we much preferred it during the day when it wasn't as busy. It was neat to see the Walk of Fame and all the stars, and we also enjoyed seeing Grauman's Chinese Theater and all of the... More
