The iconic Sunset Blvd with the excitement, glamour and nightlife depicted in movies. Although no longer what it used to be, it is still nostalgic and interesting to visit and take in the beautiful architecture and imagine the old days. I recommend a drive by to take in the charm and avoid walking at night for safety.

Had dinner in a lovely Italian restaurant here. Many great food shops, modern area, well lit-up and touristy! Felt very 'LA' and 'celebrity-like' eating here. Parking is $$$$. Sunset Blvd was one of my top destinations in Los Angeles.. you must eat dinner here at least once.

So much to see and do! Safe in the day - BUT - watch your back at night time. There are definitely some serious creepers. Not to be afraid, just mindful.

For such an iconic place the reality of experiencing it is much different! But then I guess it depends on what time of day you go, what is going on, what was in the water that day!

I love to run and have run up and down this boulevard maybe a dozen times. Every time different. It's full of independent businesses and the big brands, it's old and new. It's clean.. most of the time.

Stopping at a different coffee shop/restaurant/café each time is the best bit. You never know what you are going to get. The mafia style Italian guy serving only double shots for $2. The coolest coffee cats that are strait out of a Burberry advert knocking up supermochaskimmedtrimmedlottalatte! The guy that shouted at me for looking at his bull dog because he had issues and had just come out of counseling... the dog that is!

Go, take it in, and be glad you are you!

Our hotel was located right in the heart of Sunset Boulevard. The location is very convenience to access for food purchase. Many restaurants and pizza shops located along Sunset Boulevard. You will never worry about "food problem" in late night. MOst of them are open until midnights or later. Also, one tip that i have to tell you, Mondays is not "NO Food Day". The location where my hotel at, the restaurants are closed on monday nights. However, there is another problem i have to mention here is the community safety problem. DO NOT LET YOU FEMALE FRIENDS GO OUT BY THEMSELVES AT NIGHT!!! THAT IS VERY DANGEROUS!!! One day, we went out for food pickup at nigh. We pull over the car by the sidewalk, i step out with another female friend to the restaurant for pick up. The distance between our car and the restaurant was about 10M away. There was a creepy homeless guy smiling and looking at us, made us feel uncomfortable. We ignored him and ran into the restaurant quickly. 5 mins after, that creepy guy didnt gone and still starring at restaurant door waiting for us to come out. We scared and can't just go out like this. Unfortunately, two of us left cellphones in the car, can't call on another two friends who stay in the car. and we need help to go out. We told the restaurant manager about it, that guy was nice, let us borrow his cellphone, and walk us back to the car safely!!! THank God!!! That was the most horrible experience in my trip. In the day, we don't see many homeless people or beggars walking around in the street; but at night times, there were alot, they kept asking you for a quarter of change. If any of female travelers are planning to visit Sunset Boulevard, just be aware of you own secure!! Stay Safe!!
