Hollywood Travel Guide
Welcome to Hollywood, CA!
Welcome to Hollywood, land of dreams. Hollywood became part of the Greater Los Angeles area in 1910, and just one year later the first motion picture studio was established. Today, Hollywood is synonymous with the film industry, portraying visions of glamor and nostalgia to a degree unmatched anywhere else. Visitors to the area will be unable to miss the infamous 50-foot Hollywood Sign set atop the Hollywood Hills. Hollywood Boulevard is also a destination most tourists won't want to miss. The Hollywood Walk of Fame encompasses 18 blocks of large metal stars embedded in the sidewalk that honor Hollywood's finest stars of the past and the present. Grauman's Chinese Theatre is another must-see attraction along Hollywood Boulevard. The theatre itself opened in 1927, the same year movie idols began leaving their hand and footprints outside the building. Today over 200 prints exist for tourists to admire.
The world's most famous sidewalk stretches for two and a half miles, honoring movie stars, radio, TV, and stage performers, directors, singers, song-writers, and other well-known show biz personalities.
