Hollywood Walk of Fame

Lonely Planet review

Big Bird, Bob Hope, Marilyn Monroe and Sting are among the stars being sought out, worshipped, photographed and stepped on day after day along the Hollywood Walk of Fame. Since 1960 more than 2400 performers – from legends to long-forgotten, bit-part players – have been honored with a pink-marble sidewalk star. Follow the Hollywood Blvd galaxy between La Brea Ave and Gower St, and along Vine St between Yucca St and Sunset Blvd. Check the website for upcoming ceremonies, usually held once or twice monthly.
