Hollywood wasn't what i had imagined in my youth. Sometimes my imagination is better than the real thing. However, I would encourage a lunch at Frank and Musos (sp?). So much old Hollywood history here.

This is a good place for dining, shopping and people-watching. A good view of the Hollywood sign can be seen from here. Our hotel was in the area so we spent a lot of time here.

Hollywood is still worth a visit but has lost a little of the edge it had in the 80's and 90's as a gritty place.

Had heard a lot from friends that Hollywood is a very different place to how it is portrayed in films so we visited with low expectations which were met. We parked at the shopping centre and we spent less than half an hour here. We...More

The main strip of Hollywood is an overpriced tourist trap full of conmen trying to hustle money out of your pocket. Thirty minutes was half an hour too long for me. I would suggest that you avoid Hollywood Boulevard.

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
