We first went on a tour of LA and my wife loved Sunset Blvd. so after the tour we drove over there and walked around, and walked and walked and my wife shopped and shopped, omg. I usually hate shopping but here, shopping was different. Each store is unique and has a different quirkiness to it. There are shops of... More

Not my thing- too many shops, rich people... I prefer being in nature so this is not my thing. Just lots of expensive shops with expensive things all kept by snooty shopkeepers. But, yes, it is part of movie and film history, so go check it out! If you like shopping, then ignore me and go enjoy it!

It's a boulevard of shops, eats, trendy knick knacks. Touristy, yet so locally LA - experience SoCal.

Cruising the Sunset Boulevard is unavoidable to anyone visiting Hollywood and Beverly Hills. The strip is filled with iconic places such as bars, comedy clubs and cafes. Note that actually driving the strip isn't that thrilling: with many stop lights and obscured views, the best angle is hovering above your car, and is available only in the movies.

Nice to walk around during the day. Not so nice a night. Good for food as there are restaurants galore. Looking for shoes? Off Broadway shoes has to be one of the largest show stores. But at night, I did not feel too safe.

LA is a place for one time photo opps and sunset boulevard is no different. that said, for some, an evening at the clubs or bars might be a good option too. for families, do the tour, have a look and move on.

While in the Hollywood area we had to cruise Sunset. So many iconic places, The Viper Room, The Roxy, Hollywood Highschool, The Beverly Hills Hotel, Carney's & Pinks. Lots of places to shop or grab a drink.

Long as you're there, do the Strip... Better yet, rent a Ferarri and drive it like Ari and I forget who was in the Porsche did in that one episode of Entourage (back when it was good)... It's worth the ticket and gets better the closer you get to the ocean... And do some shopping, what the heck... Also (I... 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.
