The heart of Hollywood is bordered roughly on the north and east by Cahuenga Boulevard, on the west by Highland Avenue and on the south by Franklin Avenue. But it's Sunset Strip and Hollywood Boulevard (who hasn't heard of Hollywood & Vine?) that get top billing.
See street performers dressed as action heroes and browse through shops stuffed with trinkets, posters and T-shirts on Hollywood Boulevard.
When you look beyond the street traffic, crowded sidewalks and neon signs, you'll discover Hollywood's glittering history. Learn more about this famous town and get insider's tips about where to shop, dine and play with guided walking and theater tours on Hollywood Boulevard.
It wasn't until 1920 that this sleepy neighborhood evolved into a world-famous film industry, although many studios have since relocated to adjacent L.A. suburbs.
In the last 10 years, Hollywood has undergone major gentrification to help polish Tinseltown's aging facade. The facelift has worked wonders to attract more visitors. And that's a wrap!
Tips: 1. Park at the Hollywood & Highland structure. You'll be in the hub of the action. Shop or dine at the complex and get your parking ticket validated.
2. Wear good walking shoes to explore Hollywood on foot.
3. There are numerous places to eat but if you're traveling with kids-or you're craving a Hollywood top dog-drive to Pink's Hot Dogs on La Brea (watch for celebs) or Carney's restaurant housed in a train car on Sunset Strip.
4. If you plan to visit many attractions in the Hollywood and L.A. areas, consider buying a Go Los Angeles card, which gives you free or discounted entry to museums, theme parks and attractions.
