The place is great!!! It has great views and great places to visit, although the prices are a bit high, food is good too.

I would have to say my favorite part of Hollywood Blvd was just watching the people. You have your tourists--like us--easy to spot camera's around the neck walking with their head down reading the names on the stars. Don't miss the outdoor mall. I think it's the 3rd level that there is a beautiful spot to take a picture of the Hollywood sign. Don't stop for the characters--we saw Super Woman, 2 female, scantily clad "police officers", Transformers, Michael Jackson--they will all gladly take a pic with you, but that is how they make a living so be prepared to pay. Go inside the Roosevelt Hotel. It is beautiful---and haunted! :) May be really boring for younger kids unless you go to the Wax Museum.

If you stay around El Capitan, Grauman's and don't venture too far past Highland, its a decent experience to take family from out of town, but don't be surprised for the disappointment and the slight resentment your guests will have towards you for cursing them with the knowledge that Hollywood Boulevard is incredibly underwhelming.

There are bright spots to the street, but the further you get past Highland the more decrepit and filthy the street will get; though the saving grace of this street that pushes it out of a poor rating is the people watching. All kinds of people from any and all walks of life mix while traversing the streets odd shops and restaurants.

So go for a visit to say you've been there, but don't overestimate the streets charm. And don't keep your eyes glued to the walk of fame beneath your feet or you'll miss the true majesty of the people who are walking right besides you.

** Not really a kid or conservative mother friendly street for the most part. If you have kids take them to the Disney soda shop and keep it on that block and you should be safe, same with any conservative mothers or visiting family.

Also no public restrooms for 98% of the street.

Unlike many people we really like LA, but Hollywood Bvld was quite easily the low point. As others say, it's dirty, full of down and outs and others trying to get you to part with your hard earned dollars. It's also the only place in LA we didn't feel safe.

The street is badly maintained, full of smoke shops and shops selling naughty undies, they looked like sex shops, but I don't think they were.

If I were a star, I think I would refuse to let them put my name here!

Sometimes a "must see" is just that -- you see and move on. Hollywood Blvd was a good site-seeing stop. The walk up and down was fun as you check out all of the names on the stars on the sidewalk. There are plenty of souvenir stores (more than you care to stop in), but also the regular shops, as well as Ripley's, etc. Be sure to go into the courtyard across the street from El Capitan. Not only is there a fountain with water shooting out of the pavement, but more stores, and another "photo op" of the "Hollywood" sign. We found a street with free parking, but that was a rarity. There was a lot for $7 down by Arizona St., and one for $10 off Highland (at the elementary school) just above Sunset.
