Took the drive through Mulholland Drive late at night, and the views of the lights of LA were nothing short of spectacular. Very interesting seeing the backdrop that has been in so many movies over the years. Filled with twists and turns, you definitely have to keep your eyes open, but it is absolutely worth it.

If you want a quick trip to the higher elevations over Los Angeles where you get a pair of great views, then this is very worthwhile. If you are looking to see movie stars' homes, then this is also somewhat for you, as long as you know who lives where (or have a guide) and don't mind seeing only the... More

It is good for one visit : ) Took my family (accompanying young kids below 8). Took some pictures and saw some near wild birds (i.e. woodpecker).

It takes about an hour to drive down the road. It is less busy and less well-known than Sunset Boulevard, but the scenery is equally pretty, with a very nice area, many pretty houses as well as a great view of Las Angeles in certain areas.

We took a driving tour around Mullholland drive and sunset boulevard. It was a little surreal, driving down those curving roads that I've seen in so many movies. Each street sign seemed somehow familiar, each cliff looked like a set. Our driver was entertaining but too obsessed with house valuations in the area, which we didn't really care about. Even...

Driving on Mulholland is something you should do once and then do it again and again. Make sure you go slow and make sure your driver is paying attention to the tricky road and not all the cool sites. Once you have had a pass switch drivers so the other person can look. Also make sure you take it from... More

Grown daughter wanted to drive this road on our recent visit to LA. No guidebook for "where the stars live" - but if nothing else the views were pretty good. Saw a few tour vans.

Perhaps it's me, I love feeling 16 years old ( I am not). There is something about the curves in the road that evokes that I just got my driver's license feeling. I love drives on both Italian coasts, looking out on the sea. Mulholland, although it looks out on land, provides the same reaction of gazing into majestic space.... More

It is an amazing way to see LA- we went both Day time and night time and I would thoroughly recommend seeing it at both times of the day. Day Time is great for looking at the homes and night time is amazing for seeing the view.

Spent approx 45 minutes driving along Mulholland Drive from 101 to 405. Great way to see different views of the city and valley, spectacular homes, overlook stops and enjoy the curves of this famed LA road.

Staying in West Hollywood

Neighborhood Profile
West Hollywood
For years, West Hollywood has been known as a hub for the LGBT communities in Los Angeles. Today it still maintains the title, but has also become the “it” neighborhood for the entertainment industry’s up-and-comers. Producers, directors, writers and aspiring actors call this area home. Known for great boutique shopping, vintage clothing stores, home décor shops and fitness studios, West Hollywood is a grid of wide boulevards and narrow residential streets. The neighborhood also has a concentration of the most avant-garde restaurants in Los Angeles (rivaled only by the burgeoning restaurant scene Downtown). A trip to the iconic Sunset Strip, with its many clubs, music venues, hotels and flashing lights won’t be forgotten.
