    LA in 2 days

    by b_c_k Written May 5, 2008

    I was there over a 4-day weekend, which included the time needed to drive from San Jose to LA. So i have abt two and half day in LA. if you are into theme parks, Universal Studios was a really, really good experience for me, and definitely need a day to do that. Another day, you could probably check out the beaches and Hollywood Blvd and try to look out for the Hollywood sign. If you're into shopping, there are a few outlet areas.

    Have fun.

    Just stroll around on the famous Hollywood Boulevard and the Walk of Fame.
    Many tourists but also very nice and so much fun.

    We stopped to see some street dancers doing their act, which was great fun to see. And it became even more fun when they picked our son to join them. He did not understand a word they were asking or saying but he just danced with them. Yo ushould have seen me standing there, ...so proudly...
    That is called ' a moment never to forget '

    We spent the weekend in LA and one of the touristy things on our list was to see the Hollywood walk of fame.
    Now I have watched on TV many times when Actors and Actresses get their "Star" on Hollywood Blvd and

    The city must do some major "cleaning up" before they film anything on this street. It is full of homeless people, bums and not some great tourist spot by any means. Nonetheless I did jump out and take pictures of a few of the well known stars.

    Mann's Chinese Theatre

    It is a very touristy area with touristy shops all over Hollywood Blvd. However, this may be the best spot for people watching. L.A. has some strange folks - many of them make an appearance here. It's cool though. Stroll the walk looking for your favorite actor's or singer's 'star.' Stop at Mann's Chinese theatre. We were given free tickets to the taping of a television show outside the theatre.

    I think it was fascinating to see the foot- and handprints of all those celebrities: Paul Newman, Joanne Woodward, Marilyn, Jane Russell, Humphrey Bogart, John Wayne and Bette Davis; just to mention a few.

    These sidewalk "stars" honor not only movie actors, but radio, TV, & stage performers, directors, singers, songwriters, and other well-known show-biz personalities.

    Beginning of the Walk of Fame

    The Silver Four Ladies of Hollywood Gazebo
    1 more image

    The best is to start at La Brea, the very beginning of the Walk of Fame, and also the spot where you can find the The Silver Four Ladies of Hollywood Gazebo.

    At the feet of the Ladies lies the star showing all the categories of artists represented on each star all along the Walk of Fame (theatre, movie, music,…).

    From there, a loooooooooong walk awaits you : this whole story of placing stars along Hollywood Boulevard began with 2500 blank stars. A total of 1558 stars were awarded during the first sixteen months. Since then, about two stars have been added per month. The first star was placed on February 9, 1960 for Joanne Woodward.

    One of Los Angeles’s most famous landmarks, the Walk of Fame is a tribute to over 2000 artists who have made significant contributions to film, radio, television, theatre and the recording industries.

    A must do for anyone who likes the world of movies… Strolling along a Boulevard paved with the most famous names, its like walking in a dream :-) As there are really many many stars on both side of Hollywood Boulevard and some of the perpendicular streets, you might want to know the location of your favourite idols in advance. There is a list with all the names and their location on http://www.hollywoodusa.co.uk/walkoffame.htm

    Hollywood Behind-the-Scenes - Red Line Tours

    by tomruth78 Written Nov 28, 2006

    Steps to the Kodak Theatre

    On the Hollywood Behind-the-Scenes Tour you will see many of Hollywood's most famous landmarks including Grauman's Chinese Theatre, the Walk of Fame and the Hollywood Sign. You will also see many great but lesser known landmarks such as the El Capitan Theatre (Disney's premiere theatre), Grauman's Egyptian Theatre (where the movie premiere was born), and the only fully intact "speakeasy" in Los Angeles.

    Their unique “live-audio" system allows customers to hear the tour guide even over the most extreme city noise. Customers wear an audio headset receiver while the tour guide wears a headset microphone transmitter. The tour guide is audible from a distance of 300+ feet and over car and bus traffic, construction noise and other distractions. The system is also helpful for our hard of hearing guests who can adjust sound levels to their comfort. This is not a pre-recorded tour.

    We really enjoyed this tour as we learnt a lot about Hollywood and its history, we felt we got a lot from it which you wouldn't get if you walked around Hollywood Blvd yourself. It is not a long walk so is suitable for people all ages.

    We paid $20 each a felt it was worth doing.

    Seeing Stars - Hollywood Blvd.

    Meeting the Stars!

    Take a stroll down Hollywood Blvd. - there's lots to see. First and foremost the STARS! The "Walk of Fame" goes along Hollywood Blvd. from La Brea all the way down to Gower, as well as along Vine Street down to Sunset. But don't forget to look up as well as you walk amongst the Stars - there are many sights to see: Galaxy Theater Complex, Chinese Theater, Kodak Theater shopping complex, the Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel, the El Capitan Theater, Max Factor museum (on Highland), Hollywood Wax Museum, Ridgley's Believe it or not, Guiness World of Records, Frederick's of Hollywood, the Pig-n-Whistle restaurant, the Egyptian Theater, mixed in between numerous little souvenier-shops, as well as tatoo-parlors, and punk-rock stores. Of course there are also many little eateries and bars, and a variety of street-performers. Plenty of stuff to fill an entire afternoon and evening.

    Factoid: besides tourists, Hollywood Blvd. has also a tendency to attract riff-raff and low-lives. So hold on to your purses. We'd recommend you stay in the LaBrea/Highland area (around the Chinese theater) at evening and night time. Oh yeah - also be aware: you might get offered a "free stress test" - this is a service from the people of Scientology! (A religion founded by science-fiction writer L. Ron Hubbard.)

    Check out the shoe size of your favorite Hollywood actors and actresses.

    Just be careful, when you are going on the floor to pose for the camera that no eager silly tourist step on your hand or fall over you.

    It is kinda of fun to seek and search and find Hollywood's Who's Who.

    Stars at my Feet

    The Hollywood Walk of Fame is lots of fun.

    I had heard stories that it was really scruffy, but it's not. Apparently Hollywood is going through a renaissance and getting a big cleanup.

    It's gret walking up and down and reading the names on the stars, trying to get a pic beside your favourites.

    All along the street by Grauman's Chinese Theatre, the Kodak building etc, are actors dressed up as movie and tv characters. For a small tip they'll pose for a pic.

    There's a gift shop/souvenir shop on that side of the street where you can buy tiny shot glasses with your name in a star (if you can find your name) and cute Hollywood star fridge magnets. Tacky, probably, but "must have" souvenirs.

    Mickey Mouse's Star!

    The Walk of Fame stretches along Hollywood Blvd. starting at the corner of Hollywood & Vine. The tradition was started in 1960 by the local chamber of commerce with the aim of boosting tourism and trying to restore some of the boulevard's original glamour. Stars chosen to be included in the walk have to part with thousands of dollars for the privilage, and names to be found include Elvis Presley, Marlon Brando, The Rolling Stones and many more.

    Where the stars are immortalized...

    by USCgirlie Written Mar 28, 2006

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The Hollywood Walk of Fame is probably one of the most famous sites in LA. People of the movie and television industries, radio performers, and people in the music indsutry are immortalized here on the Walk of Fame. People who made significant contributions to the showbiz industry, whether it's from the silent era or from a few years ago, are given a star on the Walk of Fame. More than 2.300 stars have been given. Wear good walking shoes as the Walk of Fame, amazingly enough, stretches for 18 blocks!

    FROM DIRTY STARS TO A SCIENTOLOGIST NEIGHBORHOOD

    by trotador Updated Jan 15, 2006

    What a frustration!!
    I was waiting for something else!!
    The Hollywood Stars are not very good kept. ( I wrote it in 2001)

    On my last trip to LA ,I visit Hollywood again as my sister told me good changes were made over there... It was true, now is very good kept (it was easy as before was almost nasty)

    The Scientologists are runnig this neighborhood now, they are trying to get people to their "religion", they have a bus going around the area where they talk about their science.
