Driving through this area was rough, as I had a preconceived notion of what this city looked like. I was greatly disappointing at the poverty and run-down area.

It was great to arrive at the lookout point in the Hollywood Hills and for the kids to see the 'real' Hollywood sign they've seen on so many movies! Who knew it used to be called 'Hollywood Land' until the Land slipped (and I hear everyone groan...Land-slide). We enjoyed our visit to Hollywood, the good, bad and ugly. Rodeo Drive... More

Ok,if you ever go to the La, you must see Hollywood sign.There is something special about it. You can see this sign only from a distance and it is very impressive.

If you're ever in Hollywood, you need to see the sign- in our experience, the best place is the Griffith Observatory parking lot. Also, whilst there, try the 101 Coffee Shop (6145 Franklin Avenue) for an authentic dinner style experience.

Although you can see this sign only from a distance it is always impressive. I wish there is an access to this sign.

The Hollywood sign was built in 1923 for a housing development. It is now a national monument. When we think of Hollywood, we are thinking of Los Angeles and the attractions. You need to book a tour. The most frequent tours are movie stars homes. The theme parks like Disney and Universal. The hot spots like Rodeo drive, with stores... More

Everyone should see the walk of fame, Chinese heater and Hollywood sign at least once, but do not get sentimental. This area reminds me of a mini version of Times Square (10 years ago) with it's share of strange folks and pickpockets. By all means take a look but keep your eyes open. TIP: Find parking via Google maps.

Personally, I love Hollywood other than those bums who dress up like Batman, etc and then beg for money. Why people continue to support their begging is beyond me. Many great places to eat along the blvd. Lots to see as well.

Whilst walking down the walk of fame held some interest the overall feel of the place is tacky and superficial. Being approached by endless people trying to sell tours or rap CDs became very tiresome

An LA trip wouldn’t be complete without a trip to Hollywood. It’s as famous as any city in the world. How can it not be with the production of famous movies, heroes, villains, and birthplace of the stars (not literally, lol) It’s not as glamourous but it certainly has its history. And you never know who will come out of... 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.
