Hollywood Walk of Fame
You're in the heart of the city when you stroll along famous Hollywood Boulevard. The Walk of Fame consists of 2,000-plus, five-pointed terrazzo and brass stars bearing celebrity names. The stars adorn both sides of the pavement along Hollywood Boulevard, beginning at La Brea Avenue and continuing 15 blocks down on Vine Street. The stars continue for three more blocks on Vine Street--two blocks south and one block north of Hollywood Boulevard.
To follow the Walk of Fame from start to finish, turn right on foot from the Hollywood & Highland complex to reach La Brea Avenue. At La Brea (or earlier if you choose) cross the street to the other side of Hollywood Boulevard to see more stars' names.
The Walk of Fame was created in 1958 as a tribute to actors, musicians, producers and others in the entertainment industry. Director Stanley Kramer's star was the first to be installed. On average, two new stars are added monthly.
