Should be done once.

We have been here more than once, as our children grew and wanted to see it. It is interesting to see and great combined with the wax museum.

As my teens put it, it's Times Square, NY except you look at the sidewalk. It's better than when I was here 20 years ago but still tacky. Also it seems that the newer impressions are not well done. The internal shopping center and parking helps but it is obvious that the stores are struggling

It wasn't the crowds that were a problem...one expects wall to wall people during the summer. The problem we encountered were the folks earning money by dressing up as characters and bothering you to pose with them for a photo and then demanding money. They would not leave us alone. It really got to the point of being harassment. Also... More

Such fun to look at the footprints that are in concrete and see if your foot is larger/smaller than a particular movie star. Or to look at their signatures. Of course you can see a movie, as well. The footprints are free to look at and check the movie schedule ahead of time so you can get tickets.

When we are in California, we always stop by Hollywood Blvd. The experience has been good and bad, as it is neat to see the characters, but some of them are rude and pushy. They are not associated with the theatre, just hang out there. There is a mall next to the theatre, where we always seem to eat. The... More

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.
