Walked from Chinese Theater, past Hollywood High School, to Hollywood Blvd. They have done a great job keeping the feel of the original neighborhood.

Depending on which part of Sunset Blvd you are walking... if you're walking on Sunset between Vine and La Brea the only cool things to do and checkout is by Sunset and Vine. There are a good amount of food places and it's pretty cool to walk around.Another good place to walk is on Sunset around West Hollywood area. This... More

We drove the length of Sunset a couple of different times on our L.A. trip. It's completely different during the day versus at night. So much to see, so many iconic L.A. hotspots. A guided tour might be better if you prefer them as it's easy to miss things while driving yourself. The lights at night are really cool and... More

We drove down Sunset while in LA and it was interesting to see the various landmarks. It was quite crowded. If pressed for time, recommend driving like we did and not spend time trying to find parking and walking around. There are better spots in LA to do this.

We drove Sunset in our car rental and it was beautiful, but it was much better in the guided tour as all the celebrity hotspots were revealed. If you have time, then you should probably check out Chateau Marmont!

If you're in LA, you simply must drive down Sunset Boulevard. There are so many iconic things that you can see - best of all is the view of the Hollywood Sign.

Drove it a few times as a deliberate slightly longer detour to our place we were staying, and it is good to see a few of the locations that hold some cultural or historical significance to you. So, for that, it is recommended. If there was nothing of meaning to you, then it would be pretty pointless.

You don't have to be 'ready' for anything except a great travel experience: you can't cover all of Sunset Blvd in one day-it goes from the Ocean to the Train station in downtown L.A. But you can pick out the areas you want to visit, whether its the previously mentioned or UCLA or the Beverly Hills Hotel of the area... More

I wasn't impressed with this area, great to drive through and experience, but I'm not sure why you would want to walk along the pavement? This area was probably once the in place to be, and be seen; no longer. This is now just for tourists with very little else to appeal or make people come back.
