I stayed on Hollywood Bvd. It was awesome. I loved going down to they walk of fame and it is central to everything with several metros.
I don't think a trip to LA would be complete without checking out the walk of fame, the Chinese Theatre etc:. easy to bump into people when your head is down walking and reading the names. Be careful of the people dressed up that invite you to take a photo with them then expect money in exchange. Some nice shops... More
I have family living here I visit every now and then and showed me the infamous foot printing of former famous actors. One of my favorite places I experienced!
It's iconic and it's what many think of when they think LA...you've got to tour Hollywood at least once, and see the Walk of Fame, the Hollywood sign, the Stars, and the Grauman theatre. Along with all the people who dress up and try to convince you take a picture with them :-) But it is worth walking at least... More
Probably one of the most famous signs in the world.Big,bold and brash like such a lot of Los Angeles.This makes LA one of my favourite cities.I'm biased because my daughter lives there.LA and its environs always excite me from Hollywood Boulevard to the beautiful beaches.Wish I could afford to go again.
Looking at the Stars on the sidewalks was interesting. Overall its kind of run down with a freak show of locals. Not really my idea of a good time. However, its a famous place, and famous for good reason. Some of the shops, bars and restaurants in that area were cool........as they are in most other big cities. Been there,... More
I went to Hollywood expecting glitz and glam but was disappointed. This is a very run down area with lots of homeless in the centre. Seeing the hand and footprints of your favourite stars gives you a bit of a buzz. I would give this area a miss and keep the illusion of what you think it is in your... More
Yes a bit tacky, not unlike walking the strip in Vegas. Watch out for the characters in costume. They are not there for free. They want to take pix with you for tips. But overall, we enjoyed something different that you don't see everyday.
Dirty, crowded and full of beggars dressed as "stars" trying to charge you for photos. People trying to put things in your hand and forcing you to buy their cd's, Chinese theatre with handprints is run down and filthy. Stars on footpath might be ok but you'll never get a photo as if you stop you will be approached by... More
