As we had lots to see we had our driver.take us to Beechwood drive so we could have our photos taken from the street in front of the Hollywood sign and not drive us up to the mountain. This way we had a great picture taken and could adjust the picture the way we wanted to.

Hollywood has plenty to offer for the whole family, the walk of fame, Chinese theaters, Madam Tussaud's wax museum, Ripley's Believe it or not museum, the different characters on the street, lots of places to eat, great shopping venues from souvenir shops to high end stores.

You can take a Hollywood tour, but you never get right up close to the sign. There are barriers around it although many have climbed the hills to sit on the letters throughout the years. You can also see it very decently when driving to and from universal studios.

Great to see the Hollywood sign and it is clearer to see than suggested before I visited. I saw it form the observatory, which is worth visiting.

Some view Hollywood as a tawdry place filled with tourist trap gift shops, and it is. But it's also the long-standing home of promise and possibility. That's why I love it. Among the gift shops are classic movie houses, the Walk of Fame and famous restaurants. Take it for what it is, and enjoy yourself. Get your picture taken with... More

Hollywood is one of my favourite places in the world. It isn't clean and beautiful like Beverly Hills but that's why I like it. It's quirky and at night you don't know what you're going to see. It's full of characters and life. The further you walk up Hollywood boulevard the weirder it gets! Check out the museum of death... More

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.
