In our time, it is difficult to meet a person who does not know about Hollywood – the most powerful forge of cinema in the whole world. However, the Hollywood area itself is not the center of cinema, despite the fact that film studios are located in neighboring Los Angeles areas.
The entire Hollywood area can be considered a tourist attraction, because almost at every step there are houses and villas of the most famous actors, producers and directors, as well as other famous cinema figures. Walking through the spacious streets lined with palm trees, you can easily see one of the celebrities.
In the 19th century, the territory of Hollywood was occupied by agricultural land, and only in the 80s did it get its current name. Soon the area began to be intensively built up with luxurious houses, streets and boulevards began to appear. Today Hollywood is part of America’s cultural heritage. A large number of old houses and buildings have been preserved here, vividly reflecting the nature of the architecture of the 19th century. The most famous of its boulevards is undoubtedly the Aley of Stars.
Hollywood Walk of Fame
It is here that all tourists and guests are drawn in the first place. A walk along the famous alley will be unforgettable for you, because it contains about 2500 stars, as well as footprints and handprints of various famous people. Do not forget to drop by the Guinness Museum, where guests can get acquainted with various exhibits and amazing facts of the world.
Also visit the Wax Museum, which contains copies of the most famous Hollywood stars. The entrance will cost you about $ 13, but if you decide to visit all three museums in Hollywood, then buy a special ticket that will cost you about $ 30. All museums are located in the heart of Hollywood Boulevard and are open from 12.00 to 24.00. Los Angeles is home to many art museums, one of which is the Huntington Art Gallery.
