See the stars in Hollywood with these great tips and places to go.

NOTE: When walking the streets on Hollywood Blvd (between the Hollywood & Highland Complex and the Chinese Theatre) there are many impersonators dressed in costumes.

This is a fun place to explore with kids, but hold tight to kids when the sidewalks are crowded with people.
