We choose to stay on Sunset due to being in walking distance to a lot of attractions. We stayed at the Days Inn at Sunset and Orange. It was pricey but worth it. We had easy access to a lot of attractions, food, and other entertainment. I highly recommend.

It was cool to drive down the strip and check out all the landmarks. There is a lot to see and definitely worth driving through if you have the time.

It is a nice drive and has nice restaurants with tasty food but expensive. Also parking is expensive there. There are shopping venues, shops along the road, cinemas, comic and laugh factory and a lot of places which unfortunately I didn't have time to try.

Sunset Boulevard is a cool street to drive down. I went to a record store there. Parking is pricey, depending on where you find a spot at. I didn't go there at night so I can't say for sure if it is safe.

You can't beat the scenery from the coast to the houses along the way to Hollywood--and if you're lucky with the time of day, it's a good way to beat the usual traffic jams.

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
