CA native and have never been here. We arrived at night and it was crowded. Very beautiful views. Would like to come again in the daytime. Parking was a bit difficult.
We tried to visit Griffith Observatory but the traffic on the weekend was horrific. Absolutely impossible to get near the place. People were parking on the access road and walking up the hill. The road was narrow and winding and not suitable or safe for pedestrian traffic.
