You hear many things on TV and the internet about the reputation of certain places. I'd always heard about "seedy" Sunset Boulevard. We found this to be the opposite. Compared to the parallel Hollywood Blvd, Sunset was way nicer, cleaner and had some great shots, restaurants and a cinema with more to offer than TCL Chinese Theatre.

We enjoyed seeing all the stars, but would have enjoyed it more if pushy hawkers weren't constantly trying to sell us their CDs etc on the street the whole time. As a tourist, did not really feel safe.

If you have a car, do drive down to Sunset for a little look. I loved the music history and the general vibe if the area. Ideal for young people or music lovers

Its like you are walking into a film! Streets and sidewalks are often jammed during the whole day, but you can easily take a look to this famous street without any sort of problems. Sidewalks are mostly clean and full of interesting places to see. You can breath everything: from the smoke of a big Hummer to the architecture of... More

You can have a long evening walk here and every 200m you should approach nice place to grab a drink, dine or dance. In general if you don't have any plans for the evening this should be your destination. Good mixed crowd and lot of people looking for fun make that place special.

My favorite part of LA. Ok, to be fair LA is kind of dumpy and a brown dust bowl but Sunset Boulevard s the best it has to offer. Nice restaurants, some excellent hotels. Broken dreams.

We stayed on Sunset Blvd whilst we were in LA and I'm so glad that we did. So many great places to eat and have a drink. It had a really great vibe about it and we felt safe walking along there even at night. Yes there are homeless people along here, but nowhere near as many as there are... 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.
