We visited as part of a tour package. The tour guide was truly informative and understood the limited attention span of teens -- he didn't linger in one spot too long, but kept our group moving. A movie trailer started playing as we left the stage area, and the acoustics of the room are amazing! Wish we had time to... More

Are in around ? Take a look. That's all. Take a picture with your digital camera but, do not print it.

Grauman's Chinese Theater is just one of those places you have to see, like Blarney Castle or the Spanish Steps, even though you know it's mostly a tourist trap. The pavement area is randomly studded with the hand and footprints of stars new and old. There's no particular organization. And the place is crowded with visitors and hucksters of various... More

It was raining so bad when we went, but it didn't stop us. We walked around the front took some pictures of the actual building. Looked for signatures out front which was fun to find favorites. Really wish we had the time to go inside. That day they were doing the premier of Cinderella. So that was neat to see... More

You can't go to Hollywood Boulevard and not see the Chinese Theatre. There are tons of stars who have long ago passed and current stars that have put their hands and feet into the concrete in front of this theatre. The evening we were there they were having a premiere of the movie "Jupiter Ascending" and of course we could... More

We only had a few hours in LA so couldn't do too much. We decided to visit here. The Oscars prep was going on so Hollywood Bvld was blocked off out the front, making the sidewalks more crowded. There are a lot of character impersonators who do expect to be paid for a photo and some costumes are far better... More

We decided to park along the walk of fame with the Chinese Theatre as a turn around point. Definitely worth the stop to see the hand prints, foot prints and signatures of Hollywood's legendary folk. It was very busy but not so busy that we couldn't get some good pictures with some of our favorite actors. We were on a... More

If you can, I recommend coming to see the hand and footprints at night time. Our hotel was down the street, so we were able to compare what times of day are the best. Anytime in the morning or afternoon, the entire square is jam packed with tourists. In the nighttime just after dark is a great time to come... More

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.
