I found it very dirty, disappointing and full of weird, paranoid people. You'd expect the stars on the sidewalk to be glamorous...but it's not. The best part was seeing the Beatles and Elvis partnered together. As a place, not great.

I thought it would be mostly glitz & glamour, but was surprised at how much rubbish was around on the streets. Hollywood boulevard is pretty clean, but literally walk off the street & it's a whole different story. Despite the high number of homeless (& the stigma), they were quite passive & don't seem to bother anyone. It was amazing to see how many locals would buy food for them or take them inside for a coffee (faith in humanity restored). Easy to get around on foot or there's always the Metro (train), which is not only pretty cheap but there are attendants to help you get your tickets & Tap Card. Food is pretty ordinary & cost of everyday items too. Toilets are only accessible to paying 'guests' of a business, so no public toilets, seating & limited rubbish bins, so go prepared!

To get there the traffic is so bad pretty much all the time it is awful.There is crime everywhere, police undercover roping in Johns looking for sex, dirty everything, horrible service at most places and it is just not a good place to visit.

We were staying in Hollywood for the 2nd part of our trip to Los Angeles. This was an amazing trip and we had a blast. Hollywood itself is fun and neat but it is a bit seedy. There are a lot of questionable people around. So just be careful.

The Hollywood walk of fame is really neat. The handprints inside of the Chinese Theater were my favorites. Make sure you check them out!

I love walking through The hollywood walk of fame and the wax museum. This time I went in September it was a bittersweet trip. As I was strolling through the walk of fame I wanted to stop by and pay tribute and respect to my favorite singer/composer Juan Gabriel. Gone to soon. But was blessed to have gone to see his star in Hollywood.
