    Crowds, mostly teens to those in the 20s gather here in the evening. Of course, you'll find old fart philes too flipping through all of the goodies in the aisles. As one with an artistic eye, I could not overlook the colorful murals along the exterior peripheral. (See pics)

    A large mall with a variety of shops - these range from expensive designer shops to very ordinary pizza shops - it is however quite impressive bulit on several levels and has the largest underground car park I have ever seen.
    The bridge on the 3rd and 4th levels of the Hollywood & Highland center offer visitors the city’s best view of the Hollywood Sign and a great photo opportunity.

    Amoeba: OK, this is the original Music Heaven in Hollywood

    by marinarena Written Apr 2, 2008
    Amoeba Records, Hollywood, CA

    Amoeba is a beloved staple in funky Hollywood. Thousands come in to find treasures in recorded music on CD, vinyl and tapes, and in addition, there is a wide collection of music memorablia items from which to choose. There are also a good number of films on dvd and video. All kinds of music lovers can be satisfied here. Rock of all kinds is favored but there are huge sections of jazz, classical, dance, hip hop and various world music. If you are a music junkie like me, this place will be like a second home. I've made trips here exclusively for selling CDs in order to get some fast cash.

    Tidbit info:

    The Hollywood store is the largest of the three locations.

    6400 Sunset Blvd.
    Los Angeles, CA 90018

    Hours: Mon-Sat 10:30am - 11pm
    Sun 11am-9pm

    There is a hard-to-miss liberal atmosphere and attitude here. Conservatives beware!

    There are often concerts by indie acts that occur in -store. However, in recent years, the most hyped performance here was by Paul McCartney.

    Note that there are no public restrooms in-store due to the nature of Hollywood.

    Parking garage is connected to store. rates vary but is $1-2 for an hour. If you can manage, take the Metro Red Line or bus here (MTA bus 2, 702)

    Other Amoeba locations are in northern CA.

    What to pay: bargain cds can be as low as a buck, collectable posters on the walls and other memorabilia here can be from $10-hundreds of dollars

    Diva: Reasonably Priced Unique Clothes!

    by GracesTrips Written Sep 23, 2007

    Neat shop! I bought a few things. A hooded, short sleeve top as a Christmas gift. Simple design with soft material and colored stitching. My boyfriend picked out a sweater type top. It was flowy with extra material in the front. I definitely have to wear something underneath as it was totally open in front. Very flattering for $39.00. I also bought a pair of strappy sandals for $19.

    What to buy: Clothes!

    What to pay: Not Much!

    If you're looking for an Oscar-shaped statuette that says something like "best mom" or "best teacher" you're going to find it on Hollywood Boulevard. You'll also find any other campy Hollywood related paraphernalia, like a directors chair, maps to stars homes and Super Star Hollywood style sunglasses.
