I was a bit worried about coming here as it looked a bit run down from the end we walked in on and having a bad experience down Hollywood BLVD. It was dusk and starting to get busy with people going to bars and restaurants. A lot of interesting people and things to see! I loved it, we went to... More

We walked down Sunset Boulevard and it has long since lost its glitz and glamour. Stick to Hollywood Boulevard which runs parallel to this.

Absolute dump. Was not what I was expecting at all after seeing it in Hollywood movies. Drive down just to say you've done it but there are nicer places to visit in and around LA.

There are tons of sites to see down this street! It certainly is not the prettiest street in the world. I thought it was helpful to take a tour bus that drove on Sunset Blvd (in addition to other stops), instead of driving.

We started out walk at The Rainbow Bar and Grill and walked Sunset until Guitar Centre, went north towards Hollywood and Highland and then back down to Amoeba Music. Deffinitly takes a couple hours to do once you stop in and see certain stores and restaurants. There are so many famous places with so much history to see when walking... More

When in Los Angeles be sure to set aside time to visit Sunset Boulevard. You may even run into a celebrity or two!

You can't help but smile when driving down such a famous street! Do not expect a Disney experience, but you can see some famous sites and some nice houses. I would combine the drive with visiting Hollywood and Beverly Hills, and it is not far from Universal Studios. TIP: Try to hit this area outside of rush hour and weekends... More

It is a long boulevard. It took us from our residence towards all the things we went to see. Great houses though! And if you are lucky, you might get a glimpse of a celeb. Our kids sure saw Mickey Mouse.

We were on a 16th birthday trip for a person that has never been to LA. Seeing the places she has always dreamed of going to thru her eyes was magical. We drove up Sunset instead of of down and she was just taking everything I like a kid in a candy store. I think driving down is better, but... 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.
