The TYL Guide to Hollywood Blvd.
My parents recently came for a visit during Oscar weekend. When they expressed interest in going to Hollywood Blvd. to see where the awards would take place, I thought…you have got to be kidding. We Angelenos find Hollywoood Blvd. completely insufferable on a normal day—never mind when it’s blocked off, more impossible to park, and even more full of tourists trying to get a glimpse of the red carpet. That said, there are times when you’ll find yourself there, whether you have friends in town, or you are the friend in town that wants to see the stars! For those times, here is my guide to the hidden gems and secret tricks in and around Hollywood Blvd. that will make the experience way more enjoyable.
