I love the views of the city from this spot although it takes a minute to get up there, it's well worth it.

Too crowded when we visited and parking was difficult. Many people take the trails add those going to Griffith observatory.

This is one of my favorite places in LA. I live right down the street and like to walk up there. The view is pretty amazing. Also, they have a Tesla coil.

My girls looooooooooooove to go to Griffith Park for horseback riding! I try to take them at least once a month, and they ride approximately 4 times each (twice the first time, and then twice again after we grab a bite to eat). Tickets are only $3.00 per ride, and the kids get such a kick out of the ride.... More

The scenery of LA and Hollywood are amazing. It's free! The Hollywood sign is right there, the picturesque views are stunning of the valley. The staff inside the observeratory are knowledgeable. Go if you have an hour to kill...you will not be sad you went.

Using our guidebook, we knew that there were several children friendly activities within the Park: the Zoo, the caves, the miniature railway etc. However, we were unable to find these areas of the Park. Perhaps we missed the road signs or it was because we are unfamiliar with the scale of everything in LA that we were not successful in... More
