The Hollywood Walk of Fame is not only internationally famous, it’s free. Well, unless you want to buy your own star on it... Each year a committee studies thousands of applications and based on merit, these stars are awarded in one of five categories: television, radio, film, live theatre/performance, and recording/music. Gene Autry is the only celebrity to have a star in each of the five. Harrison Ford has two.
Receiving 10,000,000 visitors a year, the Hollywood Walk of Fame contains more than 2,600 brass-and-terrazzo stars embedded in its sidewalks, stretching along 15 blocks on Hollywood Boulevard.
You’ll unfortunately find quite a few homeless people along this path because there are countless opportunities to tap people for pocket change. But they’re not a threat. If you are opposed donating money, then buy them something to eat at one of the many vendors that line the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
