This is definitely one for the tourists. It was very busy, but it was cool to see the hand and foot prints of all of the stars. One to tick off of the bucket list.

The hand and foot prints are interesting, but the place is small and crowded. There was also a couple of kiosks and a coke zero tasting stand, which made things worse

Its a must do when you are visiting LA. However, the whole area is really tacky and over crowded. We parked in the Hollywood and Highland car park which was pretty reasonable. You get discounted parking if you get your ticket validated in one of the participating shops and restaurants. We got out of the car, walked the hall of... More

There are two ways of seeing inside, either pay for a tour or go and see a movie at the imax cinema. If you see a movie, not only do you see the inside of the cinema, but you get to see the lobby area which has costumes ranging form Monroe's gold lame dress to the Terminator. You get to... More

Ive been to the LA area so many times but this is the first time I set out to be a tourist. I didn't know anything about the Chinese theater so I'm grateful that we happened across it. It was neat to step into the shoe prints of all of the stars. The only downside is that it is super... More

There is some neat stuff to see there but the street performers were so annoying. Everyone trying to get money from you for CD's, pictures and whatever else they can sell. The attraction has much to see but the bazaar people and all the "So Called Musicians" trying to force their CD's on you made it a turn off.

Took the short but interesting tour of Grauman's Chinese Theater. See the historic inside of one of old Hollywood's best treasures. The history of this unique place is discussed and features some of the coolest movie dresses of all time. Check out the original hand and foot prints dating back to 1927 of original Hollywood royalty.

It's basically a theater where you can watch an actual movie. When I went there they were showing The Man From UNCLE. I pay 10 bucks for the tour inside but you can just go in for free. There is nothing special but some famous wardrobe on display which again you can view for free. The theater itself is nothing... More

Visited the Chinese Theatre in LA. Very interesting decor that has been sympathetically altered to accommodate IMAX. we visited the day prior to the interstellar premier. It was interesting to see the calibration of the screen for the event, as I work at a heritage cinema in the UK. In addition, there were costumes on display from a variety of... More

Every city has spots you have to see and this is one of them. It's very crowded but very cool. Loaded with history and a good chance to see Michael Jackson and Mickey Mouse's stars. Just go you know you'll want to say you did!

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.
