I guess this is an obligatory stop if you go to LA. This is a nice place, nice walk on the walk of fame. Actually i went two times, because on teh seond time is when Michael Jackson died (RIP), so I went and put a flower on his star. I went in June 2009.

I have been before, years ago but it really is worth going to Hollywood just because it's Hollywood especially if you're from Wales where nothing is really exciting! ( I do love my country but come on!!?) We wandered around looking at the Walk of fame and just enjoying the atmosphere. It was glorious. There were mNy characters begging for... More

We found that mostly everything you think stretches for miles...actually only goes for about two blocks. Around Hollywood and Highland, in the evenings, there is never a dull moment. When you see everything in the light of day, you realize that the people pretending to be characters and stars that were pestering you last night, are worse than they were... More

Ofcourse you have to see the sign and walk on the famous walk of fame. But otherwise Hollywood is not much to see, would rather recommend to spend more time at central LA or at venice beach. One day here is enough in my opinion.

it really is tacky and super busy! It is a little better than when I last visited over 20 years ago - they have built a shopping mall right opposite the theater where they record the Jimmy Kimmel Show but it is really not a place you would want to spend any amount of time. The place is packed with... More

This place isn't really all that great. There is trash everywhere, rude people everywhere, gum all over the floor. It just isn't what people make it out to be. Of course there are spots that are nicer, restaurants, shopping plazas, ect. But I don't think it's worth your time. I mean you can go just to be able to say... More

A classic spot but I can't leave LA without a visit to the sign!! A must see for everyone. Most of the Hollywood tours have a stop at the sign.

I guess if you are huge into TV and Movies, you might get a bit more out of a visit to "Hollywood" than I did, but essentially what it looked like to me was a few blocks of kept up 'venue' otherwise plucked down in a sea of misery and despair similar to what any particular war zone would look...

Positives: shopping, the culture, restaurants. Negatives: People hassling you to buy their CD. It was so cool being in Hollywood, it looks exactly like I have seen from pictures and movies. But I did not enjoy constantly being hassled for money from people trying to sell me various things.
