Dirty, but interesting

A trip to LA wouldn't really be complete without seeing the BLVD. Some neat things to see along here, although it's kinda got a grungy side to it.

Hollywood boulevard is a long stretch of entertainment filled mordern road. When you go there remember the boulevard is long walk of a couple of kilometres. So where your walking shoes. Carry enough cash with you as eateries deal in cash mostly. You will find global cuisine on this stretch. There are loads of dollar shops and souviegners shops around... More

Walked 10 blocks of the hollywood "walk of fame" (should be walk of shame) - which began at all the porno - drag stores and ended at the Chinese theater. You get the real California exposure here: From homeless beggars lying in the street urinating in public, potheads trying to sell you a few buds, black "rap artists" handing you... More

This was a fleeting visit so that we could stroll along the 'Walk of Fame' and take pictures of the various stars embedded in the sidewalk. Beware of the touts who try and force CDs on to you, which you then are made to pay for, a firm but polite 'no thanks' and keep walking worked.

I was expecting something better. It is just a street with bars, nightclubs, restaurants and some shopping stores. Good for walking but be careful specially in the night from thieves and homeless.

I have mixed feelings about this place. It was amazing because we were actually there to look at the Hollywood walk of fame. But apart from that. The area seemed dull. There was a lot of homeless people. The people who were dressed up as characters were great but they wanted a tip when you took a photo with them.... More

Walked the length of the strip from Selma to Highland. All but the area around the Chinese Theatre is what you could refer to as unsavoury. Full of cheap eat restaurants, tour touts and homeless. Walked back along Sunset Boulevard and if anything this was worse

Walking along Hollywood Blvd is definitely a must do but it is not really very attractive, a little grotty and of course full of tourists. The best and most interesting part is outside the Chinese Theatre. People offering tours, tacky shops and overpriced restaurants are plentiful but having said that, I did enjoy the couple of hours we spent there... More

Walking on Hollywood Boulevard is something you must do once in you life. Of course the stars on the floor are very well know but Hollywood Boulevard is more than that, this is also the home of the Dolby Theater, of the Chinese Theater or the Roosevelt Hotel. Walk up and down, take your time and let the special atmosphere... More

Staying in Hollywood

Neighbourhood Profile
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.
