If you dream of long sunset strolls admiring the stars on the pavement (and maybe actually bumping into a real one) while living the L.A. life, we advise you to book accommodation for your trip to Los Angeles in this area. Easily accessible by car, it won’t take you long to arrive if you use Uber, a private shuttle service or a regular taxi cab, with average journeys lasting 30 minutes. Low-cost transportation options include commuting from LAX airport to Union Station by public bus, then transferring to the red/purple metro line towards Highland. Once there, you are ready to enjoy everything that Hollywood Boulevard has to offer, from theatres to cool shops, not forgetting the much sought-after picture next to the embedded star of your idol.
