The “heart” of Hollywood is at the intersection of Hollywood Blvd and Highland Avenue. It beats with tastelessness and vulgarity of the entertainment world. This spot is unpleasantly swarmed with tourists from all over the world fighting to get a glimpse of anything that has something to do with their favourite movie star.  You could never get a good picture of anything in here as there will always be some other tourist in the way. The Boulevard is also peppered with street entertainments busking for money.

The most of the most famous Hollywood tourist attractions such as the Walk of Fame, celebrity hand and footprints in the cement squares at the front of the Chinese Theatre,  the Kodak Theatre (where the Academy Awards were mostly hosted),  Hollywood and Highland Entertainment Complex and  Madame Tussaud’s Wax Museum (there’s really not much difference how the Wax Model and the real-life celebrity look these days) are all in this area.  And if you still have some energy left trying to survive from the agressive pushing and shoving of the more ill-mannered tourists, stroll a bit further to discover the shops upon shops and sidewalk vendors upon vendors selling tacky souvenirs.

TIP: Just enjoy and be a tourist yourself whilst chanting “Ohm! Ohm!” in your head.
