Sunset Boulevard

Sunset Boulevard is the most well known street in Los Angeles and Los Angeles County, California. The street runs from Figueroa Street to downtown Los Angeles to Pacific Coast Highway. It ends at the Pacific Ocean in the Pacific Palisades. Sunset Boulevard is an "iconic" street for celebrity culture and is always associated with glamour among the Tinseltown set.

Sunset Boulevard is roughly 24 miles in length passing over several important Los Angeles locations. These include Echo Park, Los Feliz, Silver Lake, Hollywood, West Hollywood, Holmby Hills, Beverly Hills, Bel-Air, Brentwood, and the Pacific Palisades. Sunset Boulevard is also the northern boundary for UCLA Westwood Campus. It works as a postal code divider for north and south west Beverly Hills.

The most notable section of Sunset Boulevard is known as the Sunset Strip. Landmarks along the way include Amoeba Records, Blessed Sacrament Church, Book Soup, Beverly Hills Hotel, CBS Columbia Square, Cinerama Dome, Chateau Marmont, Comedy Store, Designer Donuts, and Crossroads of the World.

Disney's Hollywood Studios provides a recreation backdrop for Sunset Boulevard with its Twilight Zone Tower of Terror and Rock 'n' Roller Coaster. Billy Wilder's movie and 77 Sunset Strip TV series helped commemorate the boulevard in popular culture.
