Sunset Boulevard is a cultural experience to drive and get the 'feel' of California. Beautiful homes, great restaurants, cool shops, clubs, including the Viper Room, line this hip boulevard in the Hollywood/West Hollywood areas. We take magic Sunset Boulevard whenever navigating our Hollywood to Santa Monica drives. So easy driving on sunny California days from West Hollywood to the Pacific... More

We walked the length of this road and it was a great thing to do, stopped off at random places and see how the rich and famous live their lives.

This street has everything! There are so many restaurants, shops, and clubs. If you are like me and a rock music freak, the Sunset Strip part of Sunset Blvd. is the place to visit. The world famous Whiskey a Go-Go, the Rainbow Bar and Grill, the Viper Room, the Roxy are all located within a quick walking distance. If you... More

Sunset Boulevard stretches to over 22 miles but most people only deal with the section of West Hollywood well known for clubs and at one time street prostitution when the area was cleaned up in the 1990s. We took a short stroll at a section and and a drive through although its more crazier in the evening.

Sunset is a very long street. It goes from Figueroa Street in downtown Los Angeles to the Pacific Coast Highway at the Pacific Ocean in Pacific Palisades so it runs about 35 km (~22miles). On a long street like this what should you do? The Sunset Strip portion of Sunset Boulevard in West Hollywood is famous for its active nightlife... More

Sunset Boulevard is a street. Period. On the other hand it´s quite a nice street, at least parts of it. Since it stretches some 39km (about 24 miles) from the coast in the west towards east at the L.A. basin there are some stretches that are worth visiting. But it is most of the time crowded with traffic way beyond... More

Interesting boulevard, lots to see. Traffic gets buys, so take that into account. Kids really wanted to see where Nickelodeon Studios were, so had to stop there for pictures. But more sightseeing than anything else.

Long strip with lots to see. A mixture of restaurants, schools, residential areas and places of worship. Runs parallel to Hollywood Blvd, very long strip. Also home to The Griddle, my favorite place to eat breakfast when in LA.

Staying in Beverly Hills

Neighborhood Profile
Beverly Hills
Beverly Hills began as a modest village years ago and today you can still feel its small town origins, even though it has become a major tourist attraction and business center for the entertainment industry. This town lives up to its reputation as an area full of designer retail stores and residential streets lined with mansions and palm trees. Inside the commercial center of Beverly Hills, along Rodeo Drive, droves of tourists peak into ultra-luxurious boutiques hoping to catch a glimpse of someone famous. Off of Rodeo Drive however is where some of the most affluent Angelenos occupying the streets of Beverly Hills come for leisurely meals, power lunches and beauty treatments.
