Walking down Rodeo Drive and Hollywood Boulevard in the Hollywood section of the park, you'll see famous Hollywood sights such as the Brown Derby (a hat store here, NOT a restaurant), Schwab's Drug Store and Mel's Drive-In.  Other famous sights include part of the Walk of Fame, the Radio Broadcast Center, and a facade of the famous Beverly Wilshire Hotel.  Further down Hollywood Boulevard at Sunset Boulevard is a recreation of the famous Garden of Allah Villas.
