We did not particularly remember anything we see on Sunset Boulevard. However, I can tell you that it is a major traffic jam area.

I guess it is the name and I agree, if you are in LA, you have to go and see it. However, it is not special at all. It is just like any other boulevard (not to say simple street) wher you have various shops,...More

History of your a TV/Film Buff. Hollywood has gotten a lot better over the years. But too many weird people, pot smoke and cheesy souvenir and tattoo shops. Spend you CA vacation in Manhattan Beach.

Questions & Answers
Hi We were planning to drive the full length of Sunset Boulevard from its start right down to the ocean, believing it will give us a glimpse of lots of parts of LA including The Strip, the wealthy suburbs, UCLA , Pacific Pallisades etc. We have been deterred a bit though because we have read that many parts of the Boulevard are treacherous with hair pin bends and blind crests. Not being left-hand drive drivers to start with, this sounds a bit scary. Would really love some feedback from locals - is this an exaggeration or an understatement? How much of the road is like this and - especially - if so, where are these sections? Is there usually heavy traffic along the length of the road outside of Hollywood? If advice is to avoid Sunset, which road is best to get to Santa Monica? Thanks heaps in advance.
