The world famous “Sunset Strip” is a one and a half-mile section of Sunset Boulevard located in West Hollywood, California. The roadway extends west from the border of West Hollywood and Los Angeles to Beverly Hills.
Sunset Boulevard is a twenty-two-mile-long thoroughfare that travels west from the Little Armenia neighborhood located near the Hollywood Palladium in Los Angeles. The Boulevard ends at the Pacific Coast Highway (Route 1) in Pacific Palisades which is situated northwest of Santa Monica next to the Pacific Ocean.

The second video (below) courtesy of Vintage Los Angeles dates to the early-1950s. It has been reported that some of the buildings seen in this video are built on property owned by the Montgomery family since the 1860s and some of the structures have survived.
