Well worth the experience

The views - allow time as its slow driving plus you want to see the city from up here. We also took in the observatory on the same trip out.

Just like on TV this is a must drive road when in LA. Safe, slow and not too crowded despite its location. Note designed for SUV's - drive it in a car with no more than 2-3 in the car. Good house-viewing and spectacular vistas.

It is a curvy drive up the hill and we stop at the first viewing are. Even though the day was hazy, we had a nice view of LA, Hollywood Drive, the Hollywood sign, the Hollywood Bowl, The Capitol Records building, etc. It was very nice.

From here, it is an easy walk along some great trails to not only see the hollywood sign but to see what the sign can see, a fantastic panorama of LA

Take the drive if you have the time. The Hollywood Hills are beautiful and it is amazing to see the size of the mansions up there! There are many spots to pull over and look at the amazing views. Just do it!

I drive Mulholland Drive several days per week between the 405 Freeway and Coldwater Canyon north of Beverly Hills. The road is very curvy with great views of both the San Fernando Valley and downtown Los Angeles. Along some curves are sweeping views of West Los Angeles and the coastline. On extremely clear days, like the day after a storm,... More

If you grew up listening to the Beach Boys or Jan and Dean, or really anything to do with Hollywood, you will have heard of Mulholland Drive. This a twisty turny road that weaves through to hills with great views everywhere you look. See the Hollywood sign from the Hollywood Bowl overlook. Yes, the Hollywood Bowl, where the Beatles played!... More

Rent a convertible and drive Mulholland Drive on a nice day. Lots of celeb homes along the way but you can't really see much of that because most are behind gates, bushes and private driveways. Also can be a lot of traffic pushing you along so hard to drive slow and look unless you pull into the turn-outs to see... More

But I didn't know that the lookout point closed at 10pm! Managed to take some photos from the other open areas along the road, but they were not the best locations for photos.

The views were Gorgeous! We drove here after driving up the canyon from Hollywood and wow, the views! I would say that you must do this in Beverly Hills. Having a car in LA is also essential. Pretty homes along the way!
