Griffith Park and the Griffith Observatory have been on my list of things to do in LA. For me the Griffith Observatory and photos are the highlights. Also, discovered this great hiking park with many trails. Winding drive through Griffith Park to the Griffith Observatory at the top was busy with many people and vehicles parked on the shoulder of... More

My second favorite spot in Los Angeles. Dodger Stadium is the first. I make it a point to get here each time I visit. The views of the city and the Hollywood sign are terrific. This place provides quite a contrast to the urban sprawl of Los Angeles. You can drive all the way to the top and park. I... More

Did this a couple of years ago and liked it. We hiked, got great shots and just explored. This time it was more just the shots. But a relaxing time in the hills with ample trails to get you some walking time in a city that relies heavily on auto transport.

Griffith Park was the host of the annual American Diabetes Assocation STEP OUT WALK this year. We had a blast at the 5k walk for a cause. The scenery during the walk made it go by very quickly and the booths and venders throughout the park made for a nice Saturday out and about the city.

If you want a pretty much traffic free park to enjoy your favorite outside activities in LA this is it. The Hollywood hills have 5-10% inclines which are challenging for the avid cyclists. The LA river bike path runs along side the park as well.

Nice park, wonderful views and maybe the best place to glimpse the Hollywood sign and get a great photo. However, be prepared for dozens of other people who also want to see a nice park, wonderful views and get a glimpse of the Hollywood sign. Parking can get really tricky on those windy roads.

You must take at least 4 hours to explore the planetarium and it's environs. Always amazing shows and exhibits. Great hiking for the average Joe. Large park like grounds.

Wonderful view on the city of Angels, a bit windy in the awful warm of concrete jungle. Either amazing Observatory.
