Hollywood, home of the US movie industry, is all about the glitz
and glamour of the Los Angeles dream, with expensive houses spread
across an area that is home to the rich and famous.
A visit to Hollywood during your USA rail tour gives
you chance to stroll in the footsteps of the stars on the Walk of
Fame, where gold stars honour Hollywood's famous (and many
forgotten) names on Hollywood Boulevard, one of America's most
famous streets. Celebrity houses and a number of movie studios line
the route that leads to the ocean.
Sunset Strip, part of the longer Sunset Boulevard, runs through
West Hollywood and is packed with upmarket boutiques, bars,
restaurants and clubs. Rodeo Drive, meanwhile, is home to some of
the most exclusive shopping boutiques around and is one of the
places you are most likely to see celebrities. The street is
permanently lined with some of the world's most expensive cars, and
brands like Tiffany's, Chanel and Versace are all located on Rodeo
