WHY would you have a "WIFE MURDERER" like Robert Wagner in your Christmas Parade? BAD MOVE..!! RIP Natalie Wood!
I wasn't expecting anything spectacular, and that's what I got. It can be fun to walk the street and look at the stars, but if you're going to be looking for a specific one you'd better do some research, there are a lot of them. You'll be constantly harassed by street people offering you tours. The Chamber of Commerce with all the hand prints is cool, take your mandatory tourist photo with your hand in a print but don't expect for there to be a whole day's activity here.
Yes, its a tourist trap. But it's a must see for anyone visiting LA. True, it's not the cleanest place, the traffic is horrible, (best to arrive on the metro), there is always a crowd, there are homeless people, sleeping, asking for money, talking to themselves everywhere. There is also the people who dress up in costumes to make make money taking pictures, in my experience, if you say NO they respect that and back off. I've been here 3 times now, and I do love to walk the stars, take a few pics, etc. This last time I went right after Robin Williams died, and it was memorable to take a picture of the shrine at his star. I LOVE the historic theaters, and buildings. The Chinese theater is a must, I recommend seeing a movie there, or the Egyptian. The historic Pig and Whistle was quiet and relaxing way to step out of the chaos. There are a few too many souvenir shops which all carry the same cheesy items. I hate crowds so I try to get in and out quickly, but its worth the experience.
Make sure you search online to see exactly where is the star you want to visit as there are so many stars (it will save you gas (if you are driving, which most people and tourists in LA do), money and time). I guess its great for photos. My girlfriend took a picture with Johnny Deep's star and me with Don Francisco (which happened to be dirty unfortunately). But it was still a decent experience and if you happen to get offered one of those tours to see the famous people's homes, I would also recommend (as Hollywood walk of fame are full of them). I was skeptical at first but it kills some time, relieves some stress from the driving, and if you're lucky you get to see Larry King like we did, which happens to be really friendly as most people in LA). Also, we paid $15 each.
As they say in the theatre, lets cut to the chase! This is a required tour / walk / experience for anyone who comes to LA. It is a fun jolt of Hollywood history. If you are afraid to walk past a bit of seediness, then just drive through. Of the many people I have taken on tour / walk / drive - all of them are happy we went and most wanted to walk and locate a particular star - which can be quite a challenge sometimes! Enjoy with an open mind and just say no thank you to the parts you don't care for.
