Truly a one-stop shop, the Hollywood & Highland Center has everything you need, with curated retail options ranging from apparel (Guess, Louis Vuitton, Hot Topic, Forever 21, Shoe Palace) to health & beauty (Sephora, MAC) and specialty shops like Sweet! candy store and the Dodgers Clubhouse. There’s sure to be something for everyone here, and the atmosphere is festive with lights and decorations. Plus, while you’re there, you can relieve some holiday stress playing games at Dave & Busters, eating a Street Churro, or having a meal in the dining deck with a great view of Hollywood Boulevard below!
