Hollywood pretty much sums up whats wrong with America! At one end you have Beverley Hills, and a few miles away poverty and Skid Row pretty much the complete opposite of the riches of Hollywood. Plenty of superhero characters dressed up to harass you, the Walk of Fame is cool but repetitive and lots of beggars too. Worth seeing to... More

No that good Bit of a dump really,all it is is a street through a poverty stricken polluted part of LA. It's full of people harassing you either to buy their CDs because no record company would look at them or beggers in the street too lazy to get a job or people trying to get you on their tour...

For years, Hollywood's renaissance was "just around the corner," but it never did. Could never understand why tourists would want to go there. But the corner has been passed and finally it's living up to its rep.

Hollywood was great when we visited. There's so much choice of what to do from going up to see the Hollywood sign to madam tussauds and the Hollywood walk of fame. Its so worth a visit to get all the touristy things done. The town wasn't as clean as I thought it would be but I don't really know what... More

Hollywood is the heartbeat of LA as far as a tourist is concerned. If you have only one day to spend in LA, you have to spend it in Hollywood. The walk of fame, Dolby Theatre, Hollywood Hills, movie stars and their homes, the Chinese Theatre etc. etc.

The "World Famous" "HOLLYWOOD" banner and the scenic mountain view can be seen nicely from here. For photograhic capture tou may require a better lens.

Your right in the middle of it all. You can also get around the whole city without a car from this point. I'm from LA and lived in Hollywood most of my time in LA and its definitely the best location. Tourism is great of course, but local life is awesome too. Lots of indoors and outdoors things to do,...

Hollywood is the most fascinating place to people watch. Not just for celebrities, but just for those a little different the norm. Some of the best restaurants and coffee houses can be found here. All the tourist attractions you could ever want are right at your finger tips.
