A few nifty boutiques and food places littered along this street. I would drive until I see something I like before stopping by. Quite a distance to walk

A great drive while in L.A. to see the area. It is a nice, long boulevard and winds along many iconic sights. We hired a van and driver to take us along this route and drove past UCLA, Beverly Hills, Hollywood, winding streets and lovely sights. Worth a drive at least once. While you are in LA.

Got my hopes up too high, and was let down. We were following directions on our phone to find the "Famous Sunset Boulevard" and we just seem to be going round in circles until we stopped and asked for directions for the Sunset Boulevard to a local and she says "your on it dear" and we were disappointed, this was...

Sunset Boulevard is iconic and it was fun to see the walk of fame. But, as you continue to walk on it begins to get sketchy. My suggestion is to make a quick visit just to say you've been and leave.

ok , so the walk of fame was pretty cool but unfortunately you need to keep your head up and miss loads as there just seems to be a congregation of freaks all over the strip , very uncomfortable with a young child

I really enjoyed the strip part where all the local restaurants and bars are lined up in one area. Had a lovely meal and glass of wine, you always see some star/famous person. I never know who anyone is but enjoy the general atmosphere here it has a positive vibe and there is always a nice restaurant to sit outside... More

We took the bus this time from our hotel on Sunset down to the Whiskey A Go-Go. Lots of people walking around having a good time. It was a beautiful night to be out.

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.
