Hollywood Walk Of Fame - Review
Hollywood Walk of Fame is basically a walk of a lifetime, specially for a film enthusiast. With more than 10 bollywood blocks integrated in one, this walk of fame has glamour oozing out at every step, literally! There are about 2,50,000 brass stars and terrazzo stars representing the who’s who of the industry. The names are not only of famous actors but also vary from musicians, directors, producers, theatre artists and the best of all- your favorite fictional characters. Even though Los Angeles saw a lot of residents move to the suburbs in the late 60s, the walk continued to gain fame and has more than a million visitors every year.

Hollywood Walk Of Fame, Los Angeles Reviews
It would be nice if you got rid of Racist Trump's very undeserved star
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.
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.
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.
Let's see..... The panhandlers are nice. Um, the guy wearing a silver thong thing singing Madonna songs was cool..... One guy just asked me straight up for a $20 bill. Yeah, it's lots of fun! All the people dressed up in costumes wanting to get paid for a picture with your child. Can't wait to go back-NOT!
