Top ways to experience Hollywood Walk of Fame
The area
Address
Neighborhood: 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.

Lots of people walking looking down, so you get lots of people bumping into you. I strongly recommend looking it up in advance or getting a map of where each star is located because you won’t see everything unless you know where to look for it. There are plenty of gift shops with competitive prices.

It can be a fun recognition exercise to look at stars with names, but hardly anything more. The area in general has an uneasy feel, albeit very touristy and not without a couple of architectural highlights. By night, there are street performers and street food vendors. A number of museum-like establishments in the vicinity are uniformly not worth the price of admission.

The stars run up and down Hollywood Boulavrd for blocks and blocks so wear some good walking shoes. There are people and characters everywhere, which if you're a people watcher like me it is always enjoyable. BE WARNED: if you take photos with the people dressed up you are expected to tip, this is what they do for a living! Also stopped at a Mexican Bar called Te'Kila, which served huge margaritas and had delicious Mexican street cuisine for a reasonable price.

Yikes! We were there the weekend before the Oscars, so there was a lot of scaffolding and bleachers set up, which made the sidewalks very cramped. My husband accidentally bumped into a homeless man who got aggressive and shoved my husband. The street was filthy and a lot of people dressed in costumes demanding to take pictures with us, expecting to be paid. There was no way to actually take the time to see the stars on the sidewalk, just tons of people cramped and crowded. It was just grimy and felt unsafe.

The stars themselves are quite cool to see but as other reviews have mentioned the area itself is a let down.
LA currently has a large issue with its homeless population, and large tent camps in the Hollywood area (mainly off the side streets). This is really sad to see as they are getting no help. Another issue with this, however, is the small proportion of these people that clearly need greater help with their mental health or drugs; I’ve seen people in the streets throwing stuff at cars and people, shouting things at passers by… and it makes the whole area feel really unsafe.
The wall of fame itself is also full of street performers asking for money and the constant people trying to shove tour leaflets into your hands. Overall, a bad experience and I wouldn’t go back.

If you really want to take a walk in time and feel like you are where your FAVORITE actor/singer stood at one point in life then definitely do this! The area is a little seedy but we felt safe at all times. We had our name put on a start and got the coolest pictures. it was only $20 and the photographer took the pics with his camera and uploaded them to my phone. You get the star and a private photographer for $20! A MUST DO! If you look on line, you can even attend and actual star being placed on the walk. We were going to go but ran out of time. Watch youtube videos of the stars being placed before you go. Play the start game and search for your favorite stars. No need to pay the expensive parking rates. You can find street parking very easily! The meter parking is in 2 hour increments. Once the meter has started though, you cannot add time to it. You have to wait till the meter goes to 0 and then add 2 hours. We bought 2 hours, set a timer and returned in 2 hours. We moved the car to another spot and then added 2 more hours. It’s only $3 for 2 hours

We were so disappointed with our visit. We see glitz & glamour in our magazines & on TV but in reality there is a huge homeless & drug problem which seems to be overlooked. Your tours are showing you the sights whilst driving past the homeless as though they are not there. If you walk you are dodging people high on drugs who have no idea what they are doing which then feels intimidating. I had an electric razor thrown at me - I was just in the wrong place; the guy didn’t know what he was doing.
A very sad situation with over 66,000 homeless in LA who seem to have little or no help, heightened by cannabis being legal in California. Just a few blocks later you are in the exclusive Beverley Hills area! I didn’t feel safe & was very happy to leave.

We visited on an evening, shortly after sunset. I was worried that it might be too dark, but there was plenty of lighting around. There's currently some construction nearby, but we were able to walk along and see many of the stars in the sidewalk, plus spend time near the Chinese theater. The sidewalk areas in front have fun signatures and foot/hand prints from various stars. Overall this was a fun stop for about 15 minutes to see the stars. On this evening in February, it wasn't overly crowded. There were plenty of people around, but we weren't shoulder to shoulder and at times could take photos of multiple stars together without other people in the photo.

I know what you might be thinking; old Hollywood, the glamor, seeing the stars on the sidewalk like voices of the past reminding you fondly of days gone by. this was a medical trip and we had limited resources and time so we just picked out a few things we thought would be memorable to do with my granddaughters. if my opening sentence is at all what you are thinking, you can forget those ideas. Parking will cost you $15-$ 30. There were many drug addicts and homeless. It was hard to find a public restroom. When you get down to the original theater with the original cement hand prints, you need to pay to see it. This review isn't directed to everyone; it is directed to people who have and who care what their children are exposed to. It is pretty sketchy.

The first time I came here was in 1996 then again in 2003 and now in 2022 one more time. The place has gotten worse a lot over the last 25 years, no beautifications, no renovations, nothing that makes visitors feel wanted. It's just a tourist rip-off that lives on the glory of the past.

Futher, the homeless are everywhere along Hollywood Blvd. and the smell of urine sings your nose.
