Hollywood and Highland Ave.

Some would say the center of Hollywood is at the corner of these two streets. It is the epicenter of all you can do as a tourist in this area. The shopping center is world class and you will find all of your favorite brand name stores. Outside of the shopping center is where you will find the Hollywood Walk of Fame, Tour companies, the Kodak Theater, Grauman's Chinese Theater, and a variety of Hollywood Museums.


It is over the top and a must see for ALL movie and Hollywood fans! Just remember that it is a must see for all people visiting Los Angeles, so chances are it will be busy!

You will also find LOTS of actors dressed as characters. Some of them are really good and get into the role. Please remember that this is how they are earning their living and if you want a photo with one of them, they are expecting a tip.


Grauman's Chinese Theater

An Icon. At Grauman's Chinese Theater you will find the famous hand prints and footprints of your favorite stars. When we were there we found the great like Shirley Temple and Bob Hope. We also found the Harry Potter cast, George Clooney and Hugh Jackman. This area can get really crowded and difficult to take that "perfect" photo with your favorite star's footprints.

Madame Tussaud's Museum and other Museums

Madame Tussaud's are popping up in every major tourist area in the world, and Hollywood Blvd. is no exception. If anything it fits right in here. Located right next to the Grauman's Chinese Theater, if you enjoy the was museum experience (which the kids will!) then include it on your trip to Hollywood. Look for promotions and vouchers to help with the cost as it can be quite pricey.


You will also find the Hollywood Museum on Highland Ave. You will love this place if you are a true movie and classic cinema fan. You will find some amazing props and other memorabilia from your favorite films. Just make sure you plan your visit as it is only open from Wednesday to Sunday and closes by 5 pm.
