The Golden-Age glamor image of Hollywood may not be as evident as it once was, however, its very name is synonymous with the entire movie industry. For this is the shrine to the movie industry: stars in the sidewalks, the sign, glorious old theaters, the places where the movie industry grew up.

Most of the sights line up neatly along a 1-mile (1.6 km) stretch of Hollywood Boulevard between La Brea Avenue and Vine Street. Find your favorite stars along Hollywood Walk of Fame, the celestial sidewalk gallery on Hollywood Boulevard.

At the grand entryway to Grauman's Chinese Theater, you can actually match your handprints and footprints of stars who've have had theirs embedded in cement. Other famous theaters include the Eyptian and El Capitan, all flamboyant icons from Hollywood's glitzy past.

One of the must-see museums along this strip, Hollywood Museum is somewhat of a temple to the stars, crammed with kitsch, posters, costumes, and rotating props from classic films. Other museums worth a look include Ripley's Believe Or Not!, Guinness World Of Records Museum, and the Hollywood Wax Museum. At Hollywood & Wine you can see the Capital Records Tower, and the Hollywood sign stands proudly over it all.

Practical Info

If you're relying on public transportation, central Hollywood is a convenient base. The Metro Red Line whisks you to Loz Feliz, Downtown, and Universal Studios in minutes, and buses provide easy links east along Hollywood Boulevard. If you're coming by car, you'll find parking at Hollywood & Vine.
