|About these ratings|
One of the most iconic landmarks in the United States, Sunset Boulevard continues to live up to its legends. In the old days, it represented the classic and glamorous Hollywood lifestyle and became the setting of several famous films, including the obvious classic Sunset Boulevard. Today, the boulevard (which connects Downtown L.A. to Beverly Hills) retains its cinematic appeal, and the "Sunset Strip" portion has become a popular nightlife spot. The strip is also home to many classic music venues, including the Rainbow Bar & Grill, The Roxy Theatre and The Standard.
The high-class clubs, bars, and restaurants maintain varied hours, but the boulevard is never closed for a scenic drive. Consider visiting when it's not rush hour as L.A. traffic can ruin the mood.
