Without a doubt, Hollywood Boulevard’s star attraction is just that, it’s stars! Since 1958 more than 2,400 celebrities have joined the pink marble constellation that scatters its way across the boulevard’s iconic Hollywood Walk of Fame. For most visitors, snapping selfies with their favourite “stars” is a thrill in itself.
While the stars steal the spotlight, they’re not the only attraction on offer. Hollywood Boulevard also serves up a kaleidoscope of attractions and experiences, including the legendary Grauman’s Chinese Theatre. Madame Tussaud’s provides a unique opportunity to get up close and personal with Hollywood’s hottest celebrities, while the Dolby Theatre is home to the annual Academy Awards.
Given to LA’s car culture, the easiest way to reach Hollywood Boulevard is on four wheels. Some visitors choose to rent a car, while others prefer to ride one of the many sightseeing buses that cruise their way around LA’s iconic sights. Public transport is also available, with the Hollywood/Highland metro station the closest stop.
While the Hollywood Walk of Fame is the most famous stretch, the street runs all the way from Sunset Boulevard to the east, and Sunset Plaza Drive to the west. Along the way it passes through other off-the-beaten-track neighbourhoods, like Little Armenia and Thai Town.
