If you are going to Hollywood, you might as well do it. This tacky iconic sign is not much, but it is what it is. Get a pic taken as you explore the area.

Hollywood is always fun and has so much history. Everywhere you go, you recognize something from TV and the movies. It's not uncommon to see a famous person jogging or shopping. I love that there are a lot of museums and so much to see. The only problem is that it's so insanely over crowded. Parking is a nightmare and even walking down the street can be difficult. Your best bet is to go on one of the Hollywood tour buses. They take you everywhere, show you the movie stars houses, all the sights, where movie stars were discovered and even where some died.They also show you where many movies and TV shows have been filmed. Sometimes if they aren't busy, the drivers will approach you and offer to take you on a cheap tour. One night my husband and I were there and a driver had an empty bus. He offered to take us for $10. It was a breezy night and the bus had no top so we were able to take clear pictures. We were also the only people on the bus so that was even better.

I can't believe I bothered making the drive to Hollywood. It was so trashy; I was unimpressed by Melrose, Hollywood sign which is blocked by houses and buildings, and the Hollywood walk of fame. Looked like an average sidewalk to me in a dirty part of town. Did not even care to get out and look at any of the stars, which is crazy cause this would normally be something I would really look forward too. Very sad and disappointing. Traffic is terrible too, definitely not worth the trip. I would've rather stayed in the OC. Was not impressed by anything in LA.

This is a shopping centre...if you like that sort of thing...however it is also the best place for parking to see Hollywood Boulevard, the Walk of Fame and Graumans Chinese Theatre etc. Ignore the sites, including the Centre’s own site, that tell you the address is 6801 Hollywood Boulevard...that is the pedestrian entrance for the shops etc, and you do not want to be driving Hollywood Boulevard looking for parking. The entrance for the car park is in Highland Avenue next to the Loews Hollywood Hotel. Also, make sure you get your parking validated by one of the participating shops...we didn't, so $2 parking became $8!!

Anyone who is star struck will just love Hollywood. The homes are amazing to see, just to travel around and see all the architecture is fascinating. Walking around and imagining all the stars who started here seeing the walk of fame, Chinese Theatre, everything that makes up Hollywood. You can see all kinds of studios, Capitol Records, Hollywood sign, and just take it in. Lots of shops to walk in a paroose around and lots of very interesting people to boot!
