Seeing Hollywood’s Walk of Fame, Baby!

Oscars Hollywood

And the Oscar goes to……

When we go to Disneyland, we try not to just go to Disneyland (even though that’s pretty hard!)….there are lots of other things to do and see in LA.

Like strolling down the Walk of Fame on Hollywood Blvd.

You start on the corner of Hollywood Blvd. and Vine Street in Hollywood and start walking west. [Trivia:  We live on Vine Street!]

There are over 2,600 stars embedded in the sidewalk in the 15 blocks of the Walk of Fame.  There’s a lot to see.

We were interested in seeing all the Disney ones and there are A LOT of those!

(Note:  The area just 1 block off Hollywood Blvd. is a very rough neighborhood!  Only do this walk during the day!)
