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

We had to drive along Sunset Blvd and see all the movie signs, iconic hotels and bars as well as all the other sights and sounds of this iconic road. You have the Chateau Marmot, the Viper Room, the Rainbow and The Whiskey a Go Go. You'll notice many movie scenes were shot along the drive as well as the... More

We took a stroll down Sunset Boulevard last week. In my humble opinion there wasn't much to see, some chockie stores, hotels etc. Although you could see the Hollywood sign from certain areas. We enjoyed the busyness of Hollywood blvd better.

If you haven't been to LA, you should spend an hour or two on Sunset Blvd. Sunset to Vine is quite a walk, but doable. I recommend walking part of it and driving the rest. Be aware that the meters run late-night and the tickets are hefty. They are quick to give a ticket, too. You will find some great... 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 The Laugh in, Whiskey a Go Go, Chateau Marmont make this street a historical reference for much in the various entertainment industries.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
