Just passing through makes you want to see more.

It brings you back to scenes of different movies you have watch in the big screen or tv. You feel like you have just been added to movie itself and want to jump out of your car... read more

Sunset Blvd. starts at the beach and goes all the way to Downtown Los Angeles, but you will not be picking it up there. You will either grab it off the 405 freeway or on Doheny Drive and take that a bit past Vine Street to get all that the Strip has to offer. The drive is very crowded so... More

Passing through and not expecting to see much - it was a nice surprise and a good tick in the box exercise to see some of the famous buildings on this road. Viper lounge etc... Very busy road in general and lots of tour busses that can get in the way of photographs. Best to park and walk for the... More

It brings you back to scenes of different movies you have watch in the big screen or tv. You feel like you have just been added to movie itself and want to jump out of your car and be a part of it. Plethora of people of different ethnicities just show you how we can all live together in harmony.... More

We drove down Sunset as a part of our Hollywood tour. While the view is not the same with new obstruction, the legendary venues of comedy and music are still there as well as other iconic landmarks. The Laugh in, Whiskey a Go Go, Chateau Marmont make this street a historical reference for much in the various entertainment industries. I... More

Nothing much exciting to see really, it only gets interesting as you drive away from all the tourist places and you start heading into Bel air. We discovered Westwood village which was a great suburb away from all the hype and busy streets. Some great places here to eat and drink, and so relaxed you could almost forget you were... More

Another place not to miss. The streets line with expensive stores and cars parked out front. Don't miss this either.

Sunset Boulevard is another one of those "must do" things when in LA. I wouldn't bother doing the entire 35 kms though. Just a short drive through Hollywood and Beverley Hills (my favorite part) is enough.

I've taken visiting family and friends here many times. This is not what you think it should/could be. It's dirty, rundown, unsafe, smelly, unpatrolled(!!!), and you won't see a single movie star unless you happen to be there during a movie kickoff event. Otherwise, it's just a tourist trap overrun by a concentration of the worst elements of society. You'll... More
