People warned me about LA traffic and how it would be a nightmare to get in and out of the city by car. Well, they didn't take into consideration Sunset Boulevard. All the way in from Santa Monica to the heart of Hollywood took only 30 min ands it was 39 min of a visual spectacular from palm tree lined... More

We drove up and down Sunset many times during our stay in Beverly Hills and it really is the iconic California impression. Worth doing if you can

Have to say that i did not like Sunset Boulevard and I really can't see what all the fuss is about. It's just a busy main road with quite a lot of tourist trap shops on the main section. I went to look at the "Hands and Feet" of the Hollywood greats. That was also disappointing. Just dents in concrete,... More

There is always something to do and see on Sunset. I love the vibe of LA, you see so many different people and things. Sunset is exactly where you need to be id you wanna see LA for what it is!

When you imagine back to the '70's and realize this is where it all happened, its exciting to think of all the bands that roamed this area!! Great vibes and photo ops. Not to be missed!!

you must go along Sunset Boulevard either by public bus, taxi, drive, walk or go on a tour, plenty famous landmarks to see and stop for photos, some great shops along the way, a lot of history in this street

So this street runs from downtown to the west side and the ocean. It's a street and not a very wide one.... so traffic isn't fun. Yes, you can see nice houses, palm trees, Hollywood, shops and restaurants, downtown, etc. But you can see these outside of Sunset Boulevard too. Don't really get it.

There's a lot to see on this street but there is a lot of traffic. Since I'm a huge music fan, I was the most interested in seeing The Rainbow Room, The Whiskey and The Roxy. It was also neat to see Johnny Depp's Viper Room, the same place where River Phoenix died. if you don't mind driving in traffic,... More

It doesn't matter if you live in L.A. or are visiting, you are going to take a drive down Sunset at some point. Lots of good food, bars, shopping (I guess)
