HOTEL NEAR HOLLYWOOD BLVD
One of the most famous streets in the world is just a few minutes away from the Hollywood Roxy Hotel. One of the most popular attractions along Hollywood Blvd is the Hollywood Walk of Fame, a public sidewalk that stretches on both Hollywood Blvd and Vine Street. Lined with “stars,” each star honors major celebrities who made and continue to make Hollywood great. These stars celebrate every creative discipline including TV and film actors, radio personalities, directors, singers, songwriters, and other game changers in the industry.
HOLLYWOOD & HIGHLAND
Located less than two miles from the popular Hollywood & Highland entertainment center. Hollywood & Highland is home to the Academy Awards and features a bowling alley, several restaurants, bars, and shops. Next door to the Hollywood & Highland entertainment center is the world-famous TCL Chinese Theater (formerly the Grauman’s Chinese Theater). The Chinese Theater is a popular site for major film premieres and red carpets and plays current films daily. Another popular theater on Hollywood Blvd is the El Capitan Theater, which is owned by the Walt Disney Company.
There’s more to Hollywood Blvd than movie theaters. The Guinness Book of Records Museum is based on the popular book and it’s adjacent to Ripley’s Believe It or Not Museum – another popular curio museum with dozens of oddity exhibits. No visit to Hollywood Blvd would be complete without a visit to the Hollywood Wax Museum, which features over 200 wax replicas on display.
One of the best ways to tour Hollywood is by bus. There are several unique guided tours available for visitors, like Starline Tours and LA City Tours. Both offer bus tours of the city on a daily basis.
