The Hollywood Walk of Fame runs 1.3 miles (2.1 km) east to west on Hollywood Boulevard. When visiting California, it was on my list of things to do while there. It is probably one of the most visited attractions. Remember though, it is a long hot walk so you will want to bring water and most of all sunscreen.
It was an amazing feeling as I followed the stars along the boulevard, recognizing the names as I walked. Now remember this is a big attraction, so there will be crowds of people. At times you will have to wait for people to go by so you can grab a nice shot.
The first set of Stars represent where Hollywood began for me as a young child. Every Sunday night we would put on The Wonderful World of Disney as it was called back then. Cartoons, family movies and special events made it all worthwhile and I still watch Disney shows today, on my own and with my daughter. Timeless classics.
Comedy/Tragedy Masks represents theatre/live performance
Television Receiver represents broadcast television
While following the stars on your walk, you may want to look up and around, there are so many other things to see, and you never know, you just might see a star.
Hollywood Blvd is your typical busy street. There are shops, restaurants, bars and tons of people, checking out the Stars, just like you. Is it clean and safe? My answer would be “is any neighborhood, really?” Keep you wallets close and expect to be constantly asked to go on a tour of some sort.
Phonograph Record represents audio recording or music
Radio Microphone represents broadcast radio
