Interesting drive

I drove from the Getty Centre to Hollywood along Sunset Blvd. It was an interesting drive, but I would have liked to stop more often than I could. There was limited parking so I... read more

Well I was unimpressed and stayed for only 5 minutes.....yes there are stars with peoples names all over and the Chinese theater has hand/foot prints from some famous people......but , only if you have to say you have been there. That's why I went but left after 10 minutes.

I live a hop (not even a hop, skip and a jump off Sunset) and have been up and down this street, restaurants, shops and a few nightclubs over the last few years and have to say it is worth a gander. Walk it, stroll it or you will miss most of it. There are bakeries, shops on the backside... More

I drove from the Getty Centre to Hollywood along Sunset Blvd. It was an interesting drive, but I would have liked to stop more often than I could. There was limited parking so I could only stop where there was off street parking. Next time, I will park and walk some more to be able to see everything properly.

We rode down Sunset Strip a couple of times. We saw the Viper Room, Rainbow room, and whiskey GoGo bar. I guess you need to go at night when they are open.

We loved staying just off the sunset strip @ the sunset marquis. We were a short walk to coffee/breakfast, dining at night, cocktails, shopping, etc

In summer time, this place is feels deserted. Due to the heat and the great distances, people just take their cars to the places they wanna go, so no people walking in the streets (apart from to and from the parking lots). Also: huge distances between places. Not really an opportunity to be spontaneous. My tip is to do as... More

Nice lively street with a multitude of shops and restaurants. One could walk it but it can be done by car as well. Huge colorful billboards are the signature of this street.

Sunset Strip doesn't pretend to be anything other than what it is. Some good bars and restaurants, a few places we recognised.

Staying in West Hollywood

Neighbourhood Profile
West Hollywood
For years, West Hollywood has been known as a hub for the LGBT communities in Los Angeles. Today it still maintains the title, but has also become the “it” neighborhood for the entertainment industry’s up-and-comers. Producers, directors, writers and aspiring actors call this area home. Known for great boutique shopping, vintage clothing stores, home décor shops and fitness studios, West Hollywood is a grid of wide boulevards and narrow residential streets. The neighborhood also has a concentration of the most avant-garde restaurants in Los Angeles (rivaled only by the burgeoning restaurant scene Downtown). A trip to the iconic Sunset Strip, with its many clubs, music venues, hotels and flashing lights won’t be forgotten.
