Hollywood Walk of Fame


There plenty of tacky kitsch things to do in Hollywood and one of the most popular and free is stroll down Hollywood Blvd and check out the Walk of Fame, you will never know who’s name you will come across. The walk dates back to 1960 and is home to the who’s who of the entertainment industry. There’s over 2000 names on the stars many famous ones and quiet a few well not quiet as famous as they would like. The personality actually pays $15,000+ to have their name immortalized on the pavement but not just anyone can put their name on a star, there is a nomination and selection process plus a heap of other conditions. The Walk was originally thought up by an artist Oliver Weismuller who was hired by the City to help give the sleazy and run down Hollywood a bit of a facelift.

    hwof.comThere is a great website that helps to guide you through the Walk of Fame called HWOF. Not only does it work on PC’s, but it works on your mobile phone. With the HWOF site, you can see the star, get the exact location, get directions, see the photo of the name on the star, including the bio. It even has pointers and links to Wikipedia and IMDb.
