The renowned Sunset Strip. Drive north on Highland to Sunset and take a left to start your journey along the famed strip. One of the oldest and original streets in Los Angeles, it will take you all the way to the beach. Along the way, capture lots of iconic places like Tower Records, Sunset Plaza, the beautiful mansions of Beverly Hills, or stop and eat at one of many restaurants along the way. Maybe you'll bump into someone famous!

No other place says as loudly, colorfully, spectacularly Hollywood as the Sunset Strip. Take the half-mile walk (about 10 minutes) up La Brea, turn left and start your journey of discovery. Start with small shops and eateries (now and then run into a famous one, e.g. the landmark Moun of Tunis or the new Aroma Cafe), the Guitar Shop that harkens to the birth of Rock and Roll, then the famous (infamous?) Chateau Marmont, then cross over to shops and eateries featured in the gossip columns thanks to celebrity sightings.

An iconic place to visit but the evening is best by far, otherwise there is too much traffic to be able to relax. A great range of shops and places to eat and wide pavements for strolling - take a look at all of the guitars on the street to see who they are there to remember

When our friends come into town they all want to go down Sunset Strip. They soon realize it like cruising any main street in America. Nothing really to see, but the people watching is fun.
The bars and restaurants are over priced to get the tourist crowns and not generally worth it.

The Sunset Strip has a storied history, and so visitors are often disappointed to find there is not much to see here as a visitor. A number of the historic clubs are still here, including the Whiskey a Go Go (made famous by the Doors in the 60s, who were the house band) or the Viper Room, so you can come take in a show or grab a few cocktails. But don't come expecting to bump into a rock legend. The center of the music scene has shifted more to Silverlake and Hollywood.Recommended for:

The 1.7 mile stretch of Sunset Boulevard between Crescent Heights and Doheny Drive is the Sunset Strip. On one side are the Hollywood Hills; on the other side is a panorama of part of the Los Angeles Basin. It is a mix of nightclubs, hotels, restaurants, boutiques and outsized billboards.
The Strip became famous during Prohibition. Isolated from Los Angeles and Hollywood by distance and surrounded by orchards, no one paid serious attention to it. The Los Angeles police lacked jurisdiction and the county sheriffs weren't particularly interested. Speakeasies and brothels therefore sprang up and flourished in the Strip's taverns and private homes. They have evolved into today's Sunset Strip.

If you're in Hollywood, you're probably on Sunset Boulevard. The street runs twenty miles long, linking gritty Hollywood to luxurious Beverly Hills. And Sunset Strip is the most famous portion of that boulevard: clubs, bars, traffic 24 hours a day, and the colorful characters that make your stay in LA memorable. It's the Times Square of Los Angeles, filled with the exciting life of the rich, famous, and young. But even if you aren't prepared to jump into the madness, do yourself a favor and at least cruise down the length of the Boulevard. It's a lot of fun to watch the changes and progression in surroundings and culture from one end to the other.
