Hollywood Boulevard, located in the heart of Los Angeles, is a must-see for movie buffs and fans of celebrities. Take a journey down Hollywood Boulevard and look for the prominent names on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, as well as some of Los Angeles’ most iconic landmarks, such as Capitol Records, Chinese Theater, Hollywood Pantages Theater, and Egyptian Theater.
