It is definitely worth a visit in LA, even if it is by car or you can go for a walk you can find cheap souvenirs, I always drop by when in LA and every time I see an interview, or a presentation, or some sort of celebrity spotting.

Stayed at Loewes Hotel so close to the boulevard. Enjoyed the strip but would stay in Beverley Hills! Has a Train Station centrally so is easily accessible. It's where the Oscars are so a visit should be planned,

We spent half a day here as we were traveling with a big group of dancers & this was one of our half-day excursions. It wasn't my cup of tea but it was still good to see such an iconic attraction. It's a fairly touristy area with lots of people trying to sell you tours, charge you for photos &... More

When he is walking up Hollywood Boulevard is when! You have to go here when in LA but walking the short distance to cover the stars is not as awesome as it should be. The people dressing up as stars like spidey and cat woman are a joke. One guys costume was so faded it wasn't red and blue anymore,... More

I suppose you have to do Hollywood on an Los Angeles stopover but frankly I wouldn't bother. This was probably the most underwhelming part of our entire trip, a little shabby and quite frankly we could have been anywhere. Sorry, in our opinion spend your money somewhere like San Fran, LA not worth it...

The street is filthy, worn and tired. On top of this, you are bombarded every 5 yards (no exaggeration) by someone begging you for money, whether a tour operator, an "up and coming rapper", or a homeless guy. Get your photos and leave!

Hollywood Boulevard is pretty much Times Square West. If you have been to Times Square, you will recall the many sketchy folks walking about in dingy character costumes enticing you to take photos with them in exchange for money. You will also recall the many people attempting to hawk some type of tour, DVD or CD. Well, all of that... More

Disgusting to say the least.... The Hollywood past must be rolling in their graves, Except for the old cement memories outside Groman;s, nothing to see. A real shame to see this once great place, brought down to Time Square of the 70's

Not what you expect at all. The top end of this road was crummy run down area, and near the bottom where I guess all the pictures are taken was blocked off by road works. Skip this part of the tour and go see Santa Monica instead .

Start at Hollywood and Highland and walk a square mile. Along the way you will be on the Walk of Fame, its pure fun to walk on stars that have been in the ground for 60 years. Plenty of shopping and lots of food choices. Star look a-likes, its photograph and a selfie bonanza

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.
