This 3.5 mile stretch of sidewalk on Hollywood Boulevard is a wonderful way to take a stroll through entertainment history. Now bearing more than 2,000 stars honoring not just movie actors but radio, television and stage personalities as well as directors and singers, the Walk of Fame mixes up names sure to be lost on the younger members of the family (anyone heard of Gene Autry?) alongside more contemporary celebrities like Michael Jackson and Britney Spears. If you have good timing, your visit might coincide with a new star unveiling, which is a great way to see some real live stars, since those being honored are required to show up at the event.
