|In past years, I can't help but think that, Hollywood has been a major disappointment to visitors. But on-going urban renewal projects have improved the area and tourists now get at least some of what they came here for. The Walk of Fame along Vine st. and Hollywood blvd. is indicated on the map (with stars of course). This section of Hollywood blvd. might arguably be called the lingerie capital of the world with numerous shops dedicated to feminine undergarmets (Fredrick's of Hollywood being the most famous) as well as wigs and shoes. If you have plus size feet (girls you know who you are) be prepared for shoe shopping paradise. For the rest of us, its fun to look at. There are a lot of cheesy souvenier shops as well. The new shopping and entertainment complex at Hollywood and Highland has upscale shops and dining. |
