This is a fabulous attraction both inside and outside. The views and exhibits are wonderful and many gather there before sunset for that daily event. It is LA, however, so there is a pollution smog/haze much of the time, but it is still well worth driving up to the top of the edge of the city. The park grounds are... More

It was amazing place where u can see all the la from there. Hollywood sign is very close to you and the best place for that too. Inside is really amazing. Periodic system of elements, The largest hugest telescope in the world. It's really amazing.

This is a must if you're visiting LA. I would venture to say that even if you do not like hiking, it is worth giving a try. There are some beautiful views! I would recommend be prepared though. Common sense things. Hat, sunscreen, water, water, water. Do your best to know where exactly you are going as well. It can... More

Go at least once during the day and once during the night. The views are spectacular. If your going for the sunset I'd suggest going early. Traffic builds up big time

I can't say there is anything I don't like about Griffith Park it is such a great place. Plenty of hiking trails, Great views from the observatory and great place to view the Hollywood sign. If you decide to hike from the observatory to the Hollywood sign make sure you take plenty of water and plenty of suncream. It is... More

We came to the park in the morning of the day we departed so we couldn't wait until the observatory opens (at noon). The park itself is really nice with beautiful views to whole LA and the Hollywood sign.

Awesome views of the Hollywood sign and downtown LA, although a bit smoggy of course. We wanted to get there around dusk, just in time to see the sunset and experience the city lights at night but weren't able to do it on this trip. Had to go in the afternoon...still had great views though and will plan a night... More

If you're like me and enjoy hiking or are adventurous, then Griffith park is a place you should check out. I haven't done all the hikes as I just moved to SoCal from Canada so I'm unfamiliar. However when I went I found many different trails from small to big that all had it's own unique beauty. I'm curious to... More
