Hollywood/Highland Station is a heavy-rail subway station in the Los Angeles County Metro Rail system. It is located at the intersection of Hollywood Boulevard and Highland Avenue in the Hollywood District of Los Angeles. This station is served by the Red Line.[1]

The station is the northernmost station on the Red Line in Hollywood. The next stop to the north is the Universal City station in the San Fernando Valley.

With its entrance on Hollywood Boulevard, the Hollywood/Highland Station is located in the center of the tourist area of Hollywood, near such tourist attractions as Ripley's Believe It or Not! and the Hollywood History Museum. As in New York's Times Square, costumed characters on the sidewalk outside offer themselves for photos with tourists.

Hollywood/Highland is a two-story station; the top level is a mezzanine with ticket machines while the bottom is the platform level. The station uses a simple island platform setup with two tracks. Architecturally, Hollywood/Highland station shares similarities with other Metro subway stations and the design of the entrance to the station may have been inspired by the entrances of New York City's Times Square – 42nd Street / Port Authority Bus Terminal station.
