Things to Do in Hollywood: Top Dozen Sights

Hollywood Walk of Fame

The Hollywood Walk of Fame is the section of Hollywood Boulevard decked out with embedded stars that honor those who have made a name for themselves in radio, television and movies.

This is a can't-miss attraction if you go to Hollywood - you can't avoid it if you go there and walk down the sidewalk because it's right under your feet.

Pros and Cons

The appeal is almost irresistible, and it's a staunchly, anti-celebrity individual who can make it through a couple of blocks without pointing out a few recognized names. On the downside, it's hard to find favorite stars among so many strung out over so much area and some folks are disappointed, expecting something grander than a bunch of stars embedded in a sometimes-dirty sidewalk.
