Surreal

Nice to see the HOLLYWOOD letters in the flesh after seeing them in so many films and adverts - the whole of Hollywood is a little surreal though

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

Hollywood wasn't anything that amazing like people say. It's good to see it at least once to get it out of the system, but it's just like any other city.

If you are in LA and you don't visit Hollywood is like watching a movie with all the volume down. This is the place to go and see how movies are made. Here you see your heroes and your worst nightmares. Gotta meet Mickey and Daisy, Snoopy and King Kong. Unless of course you really think you want to act.....well... More

I have absolutely no idea what the Hype is about this place. Its as if all the con artists of LA have banned together to create a tourist trap. People walking around the walk of fame trying to "give" you their cd's then attaching them selves to you until you tip them. Crazy… Don't take photos with the people who... More

Its awesome feeling being there, I really enjoyed seeing this place with my friends. Hollywood and Griffith Observatory are adjacent , faced little problem parking our car, driving all way to find place and then walked some distance to reach the peak to enjoy this magnificent view.

We live close (close if you don't hit traffic) to Hollywood. We took a group of teenage girls up today to walk along Hollywood Boulevard, see the Walk of Stars and have lunch. I have to say that it was very touristy. Although it's great for people watching; especially all the various sized men in Spider Man costumes. If you're... More

If you are into movies and celebrities, this is the place for you. Lots to see and do! If you prefer nature, go back to the beach!

We found an awesome photo-op after driving into the canyon looking for a closer view of the Hollywood sign. There's a dog park where toucan park your car and hike a bit to find the view toylike best!

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.
