On The Boulevard: Hollywood Walk of Fame

This is one of a series of posts called "On the Boulevard" about attractions on Hollywood Boulevard.

Part of the fun of visiting Hollywood is seeing stars on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. Though appearing endless, the line of stars stretch 2.4 miles on Hollywood Boulevard and Vine Street. Celebrating the achievements of the entertainment industry with over 2,400 stars since 1958, don't be surprised finding yourself saying 'who' often with the importance of many icons fading into the past.

The stretch of Hollywood Boulevard fronting Grauman's Chinese Theatre and the Hollywood & Highland has become prime real estate for the Walk of Fame. Stare are presented in double rows instead of a single line with some high profile stars moved here from their original placement.

Visit the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce website to find the stars of your favorite celebrity. The site also explains the requirements for receiving a star. Among recent honorees with stars include actress Reece Witherspoon and singer Christina Aguilera. Upcoming ceremonies will present stars to Colin Firth and Alec Baldwin.
