I see that the city is trying to keep this famous tourist street going by putting in large malls, movie theaters, and parking (at the mall), but for the most part, both sides of the streets are dirty, crowded with local people trying to sell you tours, invite you to their adult bars, or get you to take a photo...

People, lots of people. Stars on the street, hand prints in concrete. View to the sign. Everything is here. Be aware of pickpockets and scam artits with costumes and free CD's.

I wasn't disappointed with Hollywood Boulevard as it was how it was told it would be, but the hype with all the TV coverage and the Oscars makes it out to be something that its not. We went the day after the Oscars for 3 days of sight seeing, and god it was bad. Dirty, plagued with people hassling you... More

We were totally disappointed with Hollywood Blvd. It was gross and weird. Only part that is worth it is the block with the Chinese theatre. And how much can you really do? Just drive by and call it a successful trip!

It was ok. Nothing really stood out or was that special. The Walk of Fame is alright, as is seeing all the handprints at Mang's Chinese Theatre. However, be aware that people will give you a 'complimentary' copy of their CD, however, they would appreciate if you gave them a tip

This is ok. It is a bit run down. Some parts are really good eg. The star walk of fame, but some parts are dodgy and I wouldnt go out there at night. Good to see just to tick off your list, but I wouldnt stay too long

This is my second visit to this area. Although we did not do much, walking around just seem to be enough. There are lots of people around all the time which is interesting to observe.

I was so looking forward to walking the area but I mostly kept my head down or focused on the distance. There are so many homeless people, graffiti, drugs, etc. that it was uncomfortable that I was just pushing through quickly so I could be done. I wasn't even enjoying the scenery.

Staying in Hollywood

Neighbourhood Profile
Hollywood
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.
