Lights! Camera! Is that Catwoman fighting Chewbacca?
A recent tourist attraction survey conducted by Stasher used a variety of data points, including TripAdvisor reviews, to determine that the iconic Hollywood Walk of Fame is actually the worst.
Attracting an estimated ten million people every year, according to the site’s Chamber of Commerce, it’s no doubt that tourists and locals alike dub this free, 15-block long walk of fame as “overcrowded” and “unsafe.”
One TripAdvisor commentor wrote: “… It might have been an elegant spot long time ago, now it’s only a dirty street with some iconic spots.”
KCAL9’s Hermela Aregawai took to the streets to ask visitors on their thoughts of the Walk of Fame. Many of the visitors Aregawai interviewed had positive reviews about the attraction, one visitor from the Philippines said it “reminds you of all the great movies you saw.”
However, another person made the astute observation that is the reality of the Walk of Fame:
“Everybody out here trapping, trying to get some money. You got the CD guys throwing CDs in people’s face. That’s probably part of the thing that’s aggravating to people,” said Khassa Selassie.
What do you think is the worst tourist attraction?
