Hollywood: A Star City
The Hollywood sign stirs up excitement, even from a distance. The fact that one is in a star city often graced by Halle Berry, Denzel Washington, Beyonce and Jamie Foxx, warrants shrieks and thrills. The thought of visiting the Hollywood Walk of Fame, the Hollywood Wax Museum and other dynamic landmarks can be exciting beyond belief.

A district in Los Angeles, California, Hollywood is the destination of exhilaration, due to its fame and cultural identity as the historical center of movie studios and stars. Although much of the movie industry has dispersed into surrounding areas such as Burbank and the Westside, significant ancillary industries (such as editing, effects, props, post-production, and lighting companies) still remain in Hollywood, according to www.wikipedia.org. There are also many historic Hollywood theaters that are used as venues to premiere major theatrical releases, and host the Academy Awards.

Given that Hollywood is a popular destination for nightlife and tourism, it’s no wonder so many people call this star city home. According to the census of 2000, there are 167,664 people in the Hollywood district, of which 4.48% are African American.

Without a doubt, the many sights and sounds of Hollywood draws crowds from all around. With fabulous landmarks such as the Kodak Theatre and the Hollywood Walk of Fame, your life without a visit to this star city will never be the same!
