I went to the Haunted Hayride event that happens every October in Griffith Park. We got the $42 all attractions pass. We got there early and did not have an issue with parking. They take cash only. We did the Haunted Hayride first, it was great, and luckily we did not have to wait long in the line for it.... More

This is a great place for hiking, with many well-maintained trails. Be sure not to get stuck there after sundown, because the gates at some entrances close when the sun sets! Access to the observatory is also limited at night, so be sure to plan your trip for when you can actually get there in the evening if you are... More

Make sure you go in a night that is clear. They set up telescopes so that visitors can look at planets, stars, and other heavenly bodies, and on cloudy nights there is much less you are able to see. Also, make sure you check out the downstairs exhibit! You can see what your weight would be on other planets.

This location really is like you see online, the views are breathtaking. Stay through sundown for the best views. Some great learning too for budding astronomers.

When you are in Griffith Park you can forget you are in Los Angeles. There are many Fossetts to Griffith Park. There are hiking trails you can take if you want a strenuous exercise. There are plenty of picnic grounds for family members to relax and have a nice day or party. They have a train museum for enthusiast. In... More

If you like the outdoors, moderate hiking, lots of hills, great views and Earth Science, this is a must see. It was crowded, but the park is huge so after you get past the overwhelming amount of cars looking for parking, it is a very quiet park. Best place to see Hollywood sign. Horse back riding available at Sunset Ranch,... More
