On The Boulevard: Overview of Hollywood between Highland and North Orange Drive

Crews lay the red carpet and prepare for "The Fighter" premiere.
This is one of a series of posts called "On the Boulevard" about attractions on Hollywood Boulevard.

The block of Hollywood Boulevard between Highland Avenue and North Orange Drive has been revived since 2001 in the similar vein that 42nd Street in New York City has changed. This strip of the famous street has been, for lack of a better term, "disneyfied" to make it safe, attractive and family friendly for the visitors to Hollywood.

With that said, this block of the boulevard offers several attractions. The previous posts have described at great length the attraction of the Hollywood & Highland Center that dominates the block. In addition, visitors may want to consider:
  • Kodak Theatre
  • El Capitan Theatre
  • Jimmy Kimmel Live
  • Roosevelt Hotel
  • Hollywood Walk of Fame
  • Grauman's Chinese Theatre & Forecourt
  • Madame Tussauds
Posts will be published later this week about these other attractions. In the meantime, enjoy these shots of the Boulevard. Visit the fourth level of the Hollywood & Highland Center for wide views of Hollywood Boulevard.

In addition further posts about the tour of the Los Angeles Music Center (Disney Hall, Dorothy Chandler Pavilion, Mark Taper Forum, Ahmanson Theatre) and visiting Universal Studios Hollywood City Walk will be forthcoming.
