When in Hollywood, after taking a selfie with the Hollywood sign in the background what else should you do? Well take my advice and forget Hollywood Boulevard! Having carefully negotiated our way from Lake Hollywood Park down to street level and searched for a convenient place to park for a short while we were confronted by a very run down,... More

Hollywood Boulevard is not the "Hollywood" you would think of movie wise, still it is part of the Hollywood "culture", definately dated, but lots of "Historic" things to see.

The names of many stars you will see will be covered with thousands of feet. It hard to see these in popular times, but its really just a sidewalk to everyone else.

We were confused if we should look down the sidewalk and not miss a star or we should look at the buildings which are full of culture history.

As long as I like to see and feel different cultures and mixed themes I can't stand all the dirt and shouting. Religion manifesto? Check. Drunk vets? Check. Dancing half naked junks? Check. Tons of made in china stuff? Check Check Check. If this is Hollywood's true face you shouldn't be surprised the city is only for the chosen one.

Its the sort of thing you have to do at least once. Great to walk down the strip, stop at the chinese theatre. My faves are to stop at Hooters for some chicken wings, and a choc sunday at the Disney café. Take a token few pics of stars, and hands in stars handprints.... worth the cheesy walk down. Good...

We had a great time here. Just watch out for the tour guides though, they can be very pushy and really annoying.

This is inexplicably popular with tourists despite the fact it's overrun with druggies, winos, whores, fornicators, and actors. Yuck.

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.
