In a quest to find the Hollywood sign, we followed signs and ended up at the Los Angeles zoo. We got directions from an employee and continued west. It took a while but by following signs we worked through the streets up windy hills to Griffith Observatory where the access and views are. The Observatory was closed this Monday, but... More

There has to be something for everyone here! We went here to hike, which there are plenty of places for that. We ended up at the zoo. As we drove around the park- we passed birthday parties, picnics, horseback riding and just so many things. If I lived in LA- I would want to live next door to this park... More

This is not the easiest place to get into or out of, we spent some time trying to find our way to the point where you see the HOLLYWOOD sign. Eventually a cycle hire chap pointed us in the right direction which was to get to the observatory. A beautiful place with sweeping, if smoggy, views of the huge city... More

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

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

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
