I live in Orange County and have been to Hollywood a few times, but mostly for events. I have never seen the Walk of Fame, and would love to go tomorrow. Yes, it's a holiday weekend but I'm finally free and this is something I've wanted to do. My question is, for those who have been, what is the best option for parking on a weekend? I don't want to spend hours driving around looking for something, or pay an arm or a leg, so it'd be nice if I knew ahead of time about a good parking garage or something. I'm also open to taking the red line, as I believe it goes through there. However, I've never done that in LA--is there much parking at the stations, and if so what is a good station to take off from?

After seeing the stars, is there anything else free that would be worthwhile to check out within walking distance of there?

Thanks!

Search hollywood and highland on the net. There is a parking structure that runs $2.00 for four hours with any purchase. They have tons of stores and you can just buy a Starbucks or a soda at one of the store for validation.

Hollywood & Highland Center » Information

To add, the daily max is $10.

The Walk of Fame will be interesting for 20-25 minutes, tops. It's not worth a longish drive on a holiday weekend just for that. It's not even worth the gas. Have some other things you want to see and do as well to make it worth you're while.

That's why I asked for other ideas To me it's worth it because I've lived in CA all my life and have never seen it. Plus, I want to go out and enjoy this beautiful weather but I can go to the beach any day.

Yes, but you asked about "walking distance". That leaves out just about everything.

She wanted free or low cost so that leaves out Universal but not CityWalk. The Farmer's Market, The 3rd Street Promenade in Santa Monica and The Pier.
