One of the best known streets of Los Angeles, which is made famous by some of the Hollywood films, is Sunset Boulevard. You absolutely must go see part of it, perhaps not all because it is so long (over 22 miles or 35 Km). From Santa Monica, through Bel Air and Hollywood, do not miss your chance to drive one... More

Sunset Boulevard, which was mostly orchards, now one of the most famous parcels of land. Sunset, especially the portion known in the 1970s for prostitution, now better know for its beautiful boutique hotels, sassy styling shopping and crazy nightlife. Used to be large mansions, think Billy Wilder's film noir Sunset Boulevard and Andrew Lloyd Webber's musical now a row of... More

This is an iconic LA street stretching for miles, but expect nothing outstanding. Along the way you'll recognize some parts from many movies. I chose to drive it and stopped on few places I found interesting. I drove it twice, and I advise to drive it out of rush hours, because once I was caught in the afternoon rush hour... More

Suset Boulevard is an interesting drive, if you have the time and traffic is not killer, which it sometimes can be specially on the westside. But you can start your drive at Sunset Junction and go all the way to the coast. In doing so you pass through many diverse neighbourhoods of Greater Los Angeles, ending up at the Pacific... More

Yeah, I know it's Sunset Boulevard, but I just thought it was ok. I didn't even want to get out of the car. It was crowded and extremely touristy. The drive was pretty cool. There were definitely some interesting sights along the way.

After going to Rodeo drive, head over to Sunset Boulevard for lunch and some shopping. Some nice stores. Many restaurants. Luxury car rentals for the day if you desire. Don't usually spend too much time here since it's kinda expensive in most shops. Restaurants are reasonably priced.

Staying in West Hollywood

Neighbourhood Profile
West Hollywood
For years, West Hollywood has been known as a hub for the LGBT communities in Los Angeles. Today it still maintains the title, but has also become the “it” neighborhood for the entertainment industry’s up-and-comers. Producers, directors, writers and aspiring actors call this area home. Known for great boutique shopping, vintage clothing stores, home décor shops and fitness studios, West Hollywood is a grid of wide boulevards and narrow residential streets. The neighborhood also has a concentration of the most avant-garde restaurants in Los Angeles (rivaled only by the burgeoning restaurant scene Downtown). A trip to the iconic Sunset Strip, with its many clubs, music venues, hotels and flashing lights won’t be forgotten.
