Everything we expected and more! Grohmans Theatre is huge. Great photo op! Giardelli Chocolate shop is sweet with tasty testers, ice cream bar, gift shop. Stars on the sidewalk are easily identified except for trump’s which was hacked to pieces and surrounded by rude graffiti...another...More

I can't say enough about how filthy, crowded, and seedy Hollywood Boulevard is. It's really hard to see the stars because it's so crowded and when you do see one you're interested in you can't get a picture because there are tons of people walking...More

The Boulevard hasn’t been this crowded from a few years back. It was noticeably different this time around. It could be just because of the holidays. Places to see here include the Pantages (where Wicked is playing), Ripley’s, Hard Rock Cafe, Madame Tussaud, Museum of...More

Spent about 30 min traipsing down the street looking for names of "stars" (and others) on the sidewalk. Way too crowded, dirty and unappealing to stay any longer - saw a few names in the concrete outside the TCL Chinese Theatre then couldn't wait to...More

We opted to drive down this famous area rather than get out & deal with the massive crowds and street vendors/costumed folks haggling. Truly not sure you would get much better pictures on the sidewalk as I got from car given the crowds. Only reason...More

First went to the TCM film festival in 2014, went again this April (2018) and wow, what a difference. In just 4 years, the sidewalks have been taken over by tent cities just a couple of blocks from the Chinese theater. Really a shame, hopefully...More

Definetly a good sight to see. The stars and the famous people's hands and feet. Walking around seeing them all is mesmerising.

Before I came to the USA, I imagined Hollywood Boulevard as a very glamorous place. However, when we visited the place three days ago, we were so disappointed with what we saw. There were beggars everywhere. A lot of homeless people were sleeping along the...More

HB is one of those places you see once for the experience but probably would not revisit. The walk of fame stars are on both sides of the street in double columns. There are so many names that it seems if a name is not...More

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

I agree with the first answer, and a little bit with the 2nd. We stayed in West Hollywood rather than Hollywood itself as it is safer. To see the big Hollywood sign, the best view is from Griffiths Observatory.
