Walk of Fame
Southern California area residents and visitors, have plenty of places to see and things to do in sunny Los Angeles.
Hollywood Boulevard features the Hollywood Walk of Fame, one of the most famous attractions in the Hollywood area. E.M. Stuart, a former president of the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce, thought of the idea for the Walk of Fame in 1953.
By 1960, the first stars were laid on the sidewalk. The stars are engraved with names of a variety of honorees in five categories: motion pictures, television, music, radio and live performance. The motion pictures category has the majority of the honorees.
Grab your camera to check out the coral pink terrazzo and brass five-point stars, embedded into the Hollywood Boulevard and Vine Street sidewalks. In total, there are fifteen blocks of sidewalks on Hollywood Boulevard and three blocks on Vine street, containing over 2,400 stars.
