A portion of the city of Los Angeles bordered on the west by the city of West Hollywood, on the north by the Hollywood Hills and San Fernando Valley, and south and east by various other sections of Los Angeles. It is a word falsely used to describe "plastic, selfish, and stuck up" people, as well as the entertainment industry, although the portion of Los Angeles called Hollywood is actually a mainly residential area, with many cultures and backgrounds. It's also not exactly the safest area of the city in many parts, regardless of its perception.

There are tourist attractions but it's no different than any other area known to outsiders.
