Tips and reviews

Here's what Trippy members say about Hollywood:

"LA is very spread out; the Beverly Hills area is between Hollywood & Santa Monica."  See More

"We could walk to restaurants and to places like Runyon Canyon Park The Grove LACMA Hollywood and Beverly Hills were all a short drive away."  See More

"We stayed in an apartment on Sunset and Hayworth which was fab and very convenient for Hollywood Beverly Hills Santa Monica and Venice Beach and Boardwalk There was a 24 hour concierge and we always felt safe walking in the area even late at night."  See More

"There IS a train from downtown Long Beach to Downtown Los Angeles and eventually up to Hollywood (blue line to the red line) but it goes through really sketchy parts of town."  See More

"If you live or are staying in an area and don't have far to walk it's not too bad – the Beach Cities and Santa Monica, Downtown Los Angeles even Hollywood are fine – but this is a place of the car culture."  See More

"You can walk Santa Monica, Venice Beach, Hollywood, Downtown Los Angeles, Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Abbot Kinney all separately but will need a car to get around from place to place."  See More

"and Hollywood, you can take the train (red line) back and forth for a $5 day pass."  See More

"It's very cliche, but Hollywood is probably your best bet."  See More

"If this is your first visit, I'd check out Venice Beach/Santa Monica or Hollywood/West Hollywood since I feel that's what Los Angeles is really known for."  See More

"But if you visit Santa Monica, you can walk everywhere there, then do the same in Venice Beach, Hollywood, Beverly Hills etc."  See More

"Hollywood is sooo touristy (if thats a word)."  See More

"But, if you are dead set on Hollywood, plan on at least an hour each way."  See More

"Then you can take the Metro Red Line right up to Hollywood/Highland Ave."  See More

"Agree with Tonco, maybe too far for Hollywood."  See More

"Hollywood is quite far from the Los Angeles International Airport, It's better to go to Venice Beach and Boardwalk or Santa Monica instead"  See More

"On surface streets, drive From Pacific Palisades through Brentwood through Westwood, through Beverly Hills, Hollywood (especially Sunset Blvd) all the way to Greater Wilshire / Hancock Park."  See More

"Hollywood - this is obviously right by all the touristy things (walk of fame, hollywood sign"  See More

"Instead of Hollywood, consider West LA - Malibu Beach, Santa Monica, etc."  See More

"Hi Shehana, Is it ever really winter in LA? There's really no such thing as things shutting down for winter. We have been experiencing ugly weather recently, but for people from California that usually just means overcast skies. I know... we're spoiled haha. That was my long way of saying don't worry, amusement parks are definitely open, there are broadway plays, shows are filming (you can check out this trippy question for info on how to get free tickets:"  See More

"For Universal Studios (which borders Burbank), I would stay in Hollywood."  See More

"I live in Los Angeles and I'd recommend you stay in West Hollywood which is a great central area in between both Beverly Hills and Hollywood."  See More

"West Hollywood - this area is about mid-point between Hollywood and Beverly Hills."  See More

"Hollywood obviously is central to the Walk of Fame, but there's also West Hollywood, Sunset Strip, Century City, CA, Beverly Hills and Fairfax that are all within 10 minutes of the places you want to go."  See More

"Hollywood is mostly good for people watching, or if you want to catch a show."  See More

"Another day could be The Grove, Beverly Hills, and Hollywood."  See More

"Hollywood: the touristy areas only cover a small portion and are located around Hollywood & Highland."  See More

"I hate to type bad news, but a taxi from Santa Monica, which is the closest beach to Hollywood is going to cost you $40 or $50 or more one-way and it would take 30 minutes (if there is no traffic, which is seldom the case) to an hour+."  See More

"I would highly go against staying in Hollywood, especially in the summer."  See More

"Why don't you stay in Venice - Hollywood Hollywood is a PIT - DIRTY and SO HOT and kinda gross in the summer"  See More

"I would stick to Hollywood, Los Feliz, West Hollywood, Century City, CA or West Los Angeles."  See More

"You're better off finding a hotel closer to Hollywood."  See More

"So from DTLA, you have the convenience of the metro which is great for going to Culver City (great restaurants and bars) and Hollywood."  See More

"Hollywood Hike the Hollywood Sign."  See More

"There is always Hollywood and Disneyland Park."  See More

"I've seen some in Hollywood restaurants, walking down the street, Beverly Hills in restaurants."  See More

"Second, I've noticed that West Hollywood and Hollywood have been mentioned but not the The Eastside or Downtown Los Angeles!"  See More

"As oppose to Hollywood its a bit less expensive and more condense with bars within walking distance of each other."  See More

"Since I'm a musician, I'll spend a lot of time in Hollywood checking out the guitar shops (a visit to Carvin Guitars and Pro Audio is a must for me, but most people won't care!"  See More

"Santa Monica to Hollywood take the same bus back to the train station."  See More

"That afternoon we did the touristy crap like Hollywood, Mann's Chinese Theater, Hollywood Wax Museum, and the Hollywood Walk of Fame."  See More

"to see: Melrose (mostly grungy shopping options and local LA places) Hollywood because you can't make it to LA and not see the sign."  See More

"Otherwise I would definitely stick with the beach cities as others have suggested (I'd go with Santa Monica if you are looking for a bit more of a quintessential LA destination compared with Hermosa and Manhattan Beach) and avoid Hollywood if you can help it (it really is rather trashy and un-interesting like Times Square)."  See More

"It'll be almost the same just to get to Hollywood."  See More

"Take the red line to Hollywood, go to some clubs and stay out til 2:00."  See More

"Rocco's Tavern is a speak easy type bar down in Culver City. It's really fun and has a cool atmosphere. ."  See More

"Here are few additions LA metropolitan area - Universal Studios Hollywood, Six Flags Magic Mountain and Hollywood - about 4 days (could be much more) Las Vegas and Grand Canyon National Park (3 days) couple of days in San Francisco city (2 days) Ripley's Believe It or Not!"  See More
