Unless they are heading to a movie premiere, most Angelinos steer clear of the tourist trap that is Hollywood Boulevard. Still, there is a lot of great cinematic history, architecture and fun to be had as well. Come join us on a discerning walk along the boulevard with a focus on significant gems of Old Hollywood and the renaissance of the modern day entertainment district.

About Your Guide
I am the head of product at a VR company, but in my free time, you can find me hiking to the Hollywood sign, ordering craft cocktails downtown, biking on the boardwalk in Santa Monica, and sampling bulgogi in Koreatown.
