The Uniqueness of Los Angeles’ Sunset Boulevard

Mar 3, 2014

There is always something about walking or driving around Los Angeles’ beloved Sunset Boulevard that will make you think about old school Hollywood. Sunset Boulevard straddles the western part of downtown Los Angeles and stretches along from Figueroa Street towards the Pacific Coast Highway and Pacific Palisades. Sunset Boulevard runs along for more than 22 miles from downtown Los Angeles.

Locations that Sunset Boulevard passes includes sites that you can make short stopovers at:-

  • Echo Park
  • Los Feliz
  • Hollywood
  • Silver Lake
  • Beverly Hills
  • Holmby Hills
  • Bel-Air

What is unique about this historical Los Angeles tourist attraction, Sunset Boulevard?

In short, Sunset Boulevard represents much of what Los Angeles is all about. A Los Angeles charter bus can be used for the drive so that you can spend as much time looking at the window, observing people, cars, unusual sights and also check out stops you can make along the way. Some of our charter bus rental customers have said that it makes them think of the 22 miles as a long stretch of paradise, especially when catching the sunrise or sunset and that it is perhaps how it got its name.

Right next to Beverly Hotel is Will Rogers Memorial Park which was constructed back in 1912, and in 1915, the park became Beverly Hills’ first public park. The park was originally called Sunset Park but in honor of Will Rogers who served as the first mayor of Beverly Hills, the park was renamed.

Pacific Palisades is a charming neighborhood which largely consists of residential areas that has more than 27,000 residents thus far. It has a mixture of large private homes, condominiums, apartments and modest homes. Take a drive through the neighborhood just to experience the diversity that signifies Los Angeles.
