I was really excited to be going to Hollywood. I'd come all the way from New Zealand and had been wanting to go to Hollywood for ages. I got there and I was disappointed. Tones of people advertising there stupid tour things. Stupid cheap souvenir shops. Also not even that clean. Noisy as street to. Only good things was seeing... More

I probably expected too much from Hollywood boulevard: it was the legend, the icon of LA for me. The first time I came there my expectations were betrayed! Most of the time it feels vulgar, cheap, noisy. There are a few places worth seeing, such as Chinese theater, and you would like to see stars on Walk of Fame. Hollywood... More

Very disappointed by this pig with lipstick. Its just a regular street with some stars on the sidewalk, that are sometimes broken or dirty. Annoying rappers wanting you to buy their cds, every second shop sells souvenirs, every first is fast food or bar. Rather go to the nature, take a hike to griffith observatory and hollywood sign. Thats something!... More

Well, there is not anything special about this place. Expensive souvenirs, expensive bars and annoying people who want to give you CDs or take pics with you being dressed up as Mickey Mouse or so. Boring! Nice to say "I was there" but that's it

We enjoyed the Walk of Fame looking at the stars but the neighborhood glamour of a long forgotten era is in much need of a facelift. Lots of panhandlers and sellers on the street that became quite bothersome after awhile. Was definitely not the glitz we had expected. Will probably not go back the next time we visit LA

Hollywood boulevard it is a difference of day and night. What you see in the daylight hours is nothing like you will see at night. The place looks completly different at night. Either way day are night you will enjoy youself. Lots of shops to visit again some are not open at night.

In its heyday this would have been the place to see. But it's about 50 years past it's used by date now. The tacky tourist people make the place uncomfortable. The Chinese Theatre and the walk of fame are interesting but there isn't much more to see. You are better spending your time around Beverley hills, Santa Monica and definitely... More

Hollywood Boulevard certainly has a buzz about it. Always plenty of street performers and entertainment, can get a bit crowded on the street. If you want to take photos go there early in the morning.
