This is 'the thing' to do when in LA for the first time. I wasn't impressed. It was not particularly clean or welcoming. There were LOTS of guides peddling open top tours, cheap souvenir shops, and yes, star shaped plaques embedded in the sidewalk. If there are specific 'stars' you want to see - go nuts. Otherwise, take the chance... More

Certainly a must see when you are in LA. It's great to walk up and down Hollywood Boulevard and look for your favourite star(s). Be aware that the strip is full of weirdos in the evening. I recommend to go during the day.

The walk of fame is OK. You will usually walk along it on your way to other Hollywood attractions. It is spread over a large area so it is good if you have an idea where the stars you are most interested in are located. Many of the stars are people most of us have never heard of. Depending on...

This area has lost its collective mind. The city developed it with new construction but I can't take my kids to see the Mickey Mouse star when there's a guy dressed in drag standing on it and when people are openly smoking pot. Not a safe place for kids.

I was very excited to go to the Hollywood Walk of fame, but... anyway, this is my summary: - Only a couple of blocks are ok, the rest are full of cheap souvenir shops, shady looking restaurants, people handing tons of leaflets, and other not-so-nice attractions. - The Chinese Theater is majestic, including the celebrity hands and feet imprinted in...

My family and I visited from Montana and had to hit the walk of fame to see what it was all about. We went to a few of the shops while we checked out all the stars on the walk. We went to the Ghirardelli store and it was Disney themed, which was pretty cool. Saw the Chinese theatre, outside... More

The Hollywood walk of fame is something you must see it's a whole bunch of streets right down town with stars all over them, hand prints of the stars and signatures. It is the best tourist attraction in LA. When I went I decided to go on a tour of LA and they explained the stars and brought you to... More

When in Hollywood, you should definitely go to the Walk of Fame and walk by/over the stars, looking for familiar names. Hey, even take a pic with/of those you like most. This is a must-do, but one time will do. It's not glamorous or clean; it's so crowded, too. But, it's fun to go for an hr or two, though

Really really big mix of run down and high end. There is so much Hollywood History but also A LOT of people and a lot of homeless. Smells a bit too. Have who you want to see and photo list lined up ahead of time. You dont really want to search your stars by foot all over Hwood.

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.
