'''Hollywood''' is een wijk van [[Los Angeles]] .
[[Image:hollywood.jpg|400px|thumb|The world's most famous sign]]
'''Hollywood''' is a district of [[Los Angeles]] that is best known as the self-declared entertainment capital of the world.
{{infobox|Hooray for Hollywood|The best-known song about Hollywood was introduced in the Busby Berkeley-directed 1937 film ''Hollywood Hotel''. Since then it has become one of the most well-known symbols of the movie capital of the world, and is even commonly played at the annual Academy Awards ceremonies.}}
A business and residential district in the city of [[Los Angeles]], the core of Hollywood for a tourist are its three fascinating boulevards: Sunset Boulevard, Hollywood Boulevard, and Melrose Avenue. All three are worth seeing. Hollywood Blvd. for its entertainment history; Sunset Blvd. for its clubs and nightlife; Melrose Ave. for its shopping, nightlife, and eclecticism.
Hollywood was founded as an independent city in 1903 and voted to merge with the City of Los Angeles in 1910. That same year also saw the birth of the Southern California motion picture industry when D. W. Griffith relocated his Biograph Company, sparking a westward migration of East Coast filmmakers. As movies exploded in popularity in the 1910s and '20s, the name Hollywood became synonymous with "the Industry." In the decades following World War 2, Hollywood's glamor began to fade, and by the 1980s it was considered one of the worst neighborhoods in Los Angeles. The 1990s, however, saw the beginning of community redevelopment efforts, and today Hollywood is once again one of the region's most vibrant areas.
Paramount is the only major studio is still headquartered in Hollywood, but the area nonetheless remains an important center of the entertainment industry with its myriad production and broadcast facilities, as well as other affiliated businesses. These include Sunset-Gower Studios, Hollywood Center Studios, Raleigh Studios, Jim Henson Studios (a subsidiary of Walt Disney Pictures), and KTLA Studios (the local CW affiliate, housed on the original Warner Bros. lot).
Otherwise, the major studios are located to the north in the [[Universal City]]-[[Burbank]] corridor (Universal, Warner Bros., Disney, ABC, NBC, and DreamWorks). Most of the rest are to the west - [[Century City]] (Fox, MGM), the Fairfax District (CBS), and [[Culver City]] (Sony).
If you want to see where films are shot, take a tour at one of major studios. Universal [http://www.universalstudios.com/] "bundles" a full amusement park with its tour. Several other studios offer smaller, but interesting tours. In reality, most films are shot in warehouses and sound stages in [[Burbank]] and elsewhere.
If you want to see celebrities, the experience is less convenient (for you and them). The chances of bumping into a celebrity are very low - unless you're willing to do a lot of "hanging out" at expensive restaurants in [[Beverly Hills]], on Sunset Plaza, or in [[Malibu]]. You can easily see where they live, however, by taking a tour or following a star map (remember Drew Barrymore in the Bad News Bears?). You might also try '''Book Soup''' bookstore or the '''Viper Room''' bar, both on Sunset Blvd in [[West Hollywood]], or a number of other locations in the area where the stars live their day-to-day lives.
The best place to see stars in Hollywood is of course '''Griffith Park Observatory''', which appeared in "Rebel Without a Cause" and many other movies.
==Get in==
Hollywood's location is central to most other popular attractions. The Red Line subway stations at Hollywood/Vine and Hollywood/Highland can connect you to the many city areas accessible by [[Los_Angeles#By_Rail | rail]], and the stretch of Hollywood Blvd between Highland and Vine serves as a focal node of the [[Los_Angeles#By_Bus | bus]] system. Hollywood is also near enough to the [[West Side (Los Angeles County)|Westside]] to make [[Los_Angeles#By_Car | car]] trips there relatively easy, and the center of the freeway network (Downtown) is nearby, making long distance car travel relatively simple.
Santa Monica Boulevard links Hollywood with [[Beverly Hills]] and [[Santa Monica]].
Visitors from [[Orange County]], home of Disneyland and Knott's Berry Farm, can get to Hollywood by taking Amtrak's Pacific Surfliner or Metrolink's Orange County Line to Los Angeles Union Station and then transferring to the Red Line.
By air Hollywood is served by '''Los Angeles International Airport''' ([http://www.lax-airport.net/ LAX]) or the slightly closer '''Bob Hope Airport''' ([http://burbankairport.com BUR]) in [[Burbank]].
==Get around==
The main east-west streets of central Hollywood are Hollywood Blvd and Sunset Blvd, crossed by the main north-south streets of La Brea Ave, Highland Ave, Cahuenga Blvd, Vine St, and Gower St. Any location within a few blocks of the intersections of these streets is likely to be a satisfying choice. Night-time pedestrian activity in this area is focused on Hollywood Blvd.
The main areas of Hollywood are walkable, and you ''could'' walk all the way from Hollywood Blvd to Melrose, but most people would probably drive.

===Clubs and bars===
Street life in Hollywood remains lively to a later hour than in most other areas, making the district a satisfying location to come home to. In fact, the best time to see Hollywood is in the evening, since the district serves, along with the nearby Sunset Strip, as the regional center for clubs and nightlife.

Prices are reasonable given the location and decor, with beers from $5 per pint and food starting around $8.</drink>

Hollywood offers a wide range in price and quality of accommodations. The modern Renaissance Hotel and the antique Roosevelt Hotel provide an upscale choice, though the latter has a reputation for frequently closing its pool for private parties. There is a full range of standard motel chains including Travelodge, Motel 6, and Best Western. There are also a few well-located Hostels.
