Our hotel was right by here so we got to walk around here lots and each time you do you will see someone different. But if they have a new movie about to open it is closed off to the public. We saw this happen and it's very disappointing to the people who may have traveled some distance to check... More

This is a must-see when visiting LA/Hollywood. Take everyone else's advice and go early in the morning before there is a big crowd. We went around 8:30am and there were only a handful of people there so we were able to see and take pictures of many handprints/footprints without any obstructions. Beware of the impersonators or people in costume who... More

It's definetly worth going to see. My favourite part was the Marilyn Monroe Memorial. I would go for the experience. It doesn't cost anything to see so you might as well.

For me, this was the best part of the Hollywood Walk of Fame. The theater is clearly old and it's really interesting to look at. I particularly liked looking at the messages of the stars, especially the older ones who wrote more personal messages.

Fantastic building. However, if the tour takes place while a movie is playing (especially loud ones like The Hobbit) you won't be able to hear 50% of it. A lot of the tour was about a few movie costumes there.

Put the Pacific Coast Highway on your bucket list. This is a must do trip. We flew into San Francisco, rented a car and spent the next two weeks driving down the PCH to San Diego. I recommend the North to South route because you will be on the coast side of the PCH and not have passing cars block... More

I have never been to the Chinese theater. My favorite "I Love Lucy" episode centers around John Wayne's footprints, I grew up 90 miles away, I have been down to LA many times. Lots of people trying to sell tours, lots of tourists, lots of fun! Not to be missed if you are in the area. Be careful and respectful... More

I would highly recommend doing this as well in the morning as it can get very crowded and busy during the day. Of course, make sure to take enough photos.

Yes it is crowded and yes there are people trying to sell you anything and everything or just ask for money, but... If you're coming to Hollywood you have to come here. There's something magical about standing in the footprints of stars.

I'm sure the courtyard is always busy . There will always be the people dressed up as a cartoon character or a Star Wars guy , but it is still cool to see the footprints of some of the stars dating back to 1929 or so . It makes me think back to the time when Hollywood was glamorous .... More
