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.

When you look at the list of must do's this is one of them. Lots of recognizable places are on this street. Nothing like stopping to eat here and people watch. Walk, drive or bike, Sunset Boulevard must be on list of must sees

Again...This was one of those super hyped areas that disappoints you. The fault lies within..Having grown up on a liberal dose of Hollywood movies, sunset boulevard occupies a huge space in my mind. But the real boulevard did not live up to the movie counterpart. It's a row of restaurants, bars, nightclubs, liquor stores and other small shops. Good for... More

Driving along Sunset Blvd, you can find yourself in areas that do not appeal to you, or others that do. Wooded residential areas, high end shopping areas plus plenty of city blocks on Sunset. Beverly Hills is the nicest area.

Sunset Blvd was once peppered by a vast assortment of wonderful nightclubs that were the "in spots" for celebrities and the well-suited Angelenos. Although it doesn't have the same charm it once did, it is still a very interesting place and one that should be experienced. Several clubs from the 70's and 80's still remain and many good restaurants can... More

Sunset Blvd is one of the storied streets in Los Angeles. But to us, it was just another decaying strip of liquor stores and low-rent night clubs and bars.

Most visitors concentrate on the stars' names on the sidewalk. I found that while it's interesting, it was more fun to look in all the store windows. There a re the mundane of every store, and there a re the outstanding things that are different. Most businesses will take the time to periodically change their displays which makes the walk...

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.
