No one needs to be told about the Hollywood Walk of Fame. It begins around Hollywood and Vine and continues on down to beyond Hollywood and Highland.
What most people don’t know is that not only can you see the names of celebrities and important people on the ground people walk on, you can see “real” stars and superheroes too! Faux stars and superheroes that is.
The first time I encountered them I thought they were people dressing like movie characters hoping to be discovered. Later I learned that people actually dress up as movie characters and work the Boulevard for tips.
You will find all of your superheroes: Batman, Spiderman, Superman and more. And very recognizable movie characters, such as one dressed as Johnny Depp from Pirates of the Caribbean.
It’s all in good fun.
So if you are looking to pose for a picture with a superhero, head on down to the Walk of Fame while you are in LA. You will find them anywhere on the Boulevard, but the biggest concentration is on Hollywood Boulevard and Highland Ave near the Grauman’s Chinese Theatre. This is also the part of Hollywood that attracts the most tourists, for reasons that will rapidly become obvious once you arrive.
Again, you can see them anywhere on the Walk of Fame, and most any time of the day or night.
And throw them a tip. That’s why they are there.
