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.

For any single male who plans to take a trip in LA from 17th to 19th but hasn't booked a hotel yet, I, alone, have mistakenly booked a double room for these three nights in Saharan Motor Hotel at 7212 Sunset Boulevard. If you'd like to share the room with me, please let me know. It just costs $70/night, and... More

Hell of a road trip, it goes on for miles! There is something about the name that makes you want to drive the length of it. You can imagine being in the 60's with all its romance and seeing the film stars out and about. We didn't see any!! Well worth the drive to say you have done it.

Sunset Boulevard runs all the way from downtown L.A. to the Coast. It goes through all different kinds of neighborhoods ranging from dodgy to super-posh. There is a lot of traffic on it so the drive can be stressful and tiring.

I didn't find this area too interesting. It was good to experience it and I am glad I did but it was a street with some cool looking cafes and restaurants and expensive looking shops. Not something I would go out of my way to do again. There are much better things to do while in Hollywood I felt it... More

It certainly is an interesting drive as some have said. There's some cool restaurants, cafes and bars along there and any type of shop you need. But to us on a budget it was only the drive that interested us, something to ad on as an experience rather than a must do.

I went looking for 77 sunset strip made famous in a series from my youth. Guess what. I was told it was long ago buldozed and the entire block redeveloped. It was still an interesting trip

This is a must drive down street if you are in LA/Beverly Hills; very eclectic and cool atmosphere as you are driving through the different areas of it.
