About: Hollywood and the Hollywood Hills

Hollywood is most notable for being the home of the film industry, including several of its historic studios. Its name has come to be a metonym for the motion picture industry of the United States. Hollywood is also a highly ethnically diverse, densely populated, economically diverse neighborhood and retail business district.

Hollywood was a small community in 1870 and was incorporated as a municipality in 1903.  It officially merged with the city of Los Angeles in 1910, and soon thereafter a prominent film industry began to emerge, eventually becoming the most iconic and recognizable in the world.

Today for millions of visitors, Hollywood is an essential part of the Los Angeles experience. Things to do in Hollywood include must-see shows and attractions, celebrity-frequented restaurants, and world class hotels. Experience Tinseltown glamour at TCL Chinese Theatre or the Hollywood Walk of Fame, which has honored celebrities for over 50 years. The state-of-the-art Dolby Theatre is home to the Academy Awards and Universal Studios Hollywood is known as a world famous theme park.  Hollywood has it all.

Adjacent to Hollywood are the Hollywood Hills.  Due to its proximity to and excellent views of Los Angeles, the Hills feature many expensive homes and celebrity inhabitants. It also has several recreational areas and a rich history as the home of many members of the motion picture industry.  

The neighborhood of Hollywood Hills is a high-income, low-density, well-educated, youthful urban residential district. It includes the Hollywood Bowl and Forest Lawn Memorial Park, as well as two private and three public schools.
