When in LA, you can't help but see the sign!

The Hollywood Sign is a part of the LA skyline, you really can't miss it. You can get great pictures of it in Griffith Park at the Observatory, driving up Gower, or at Hollywood... read more

Unfortunately the sign is almost impossible to get close to without a very hard hike up and mountain. Almost... More

It's a sign. On a hill. You can't get close to it. But, you can take photos from Beverly Hills with it in the background. So doesn't take much effort, but it doesn't really inspire you in any way.

The quintessential site to see in Los Angeles. You can see it from many places in the valley however I would suggest taking it in from Griffith park observatiory car park where you can also look down over downtown LA and the Walk of Fame area. One other place to get a good "frame" for your picture of the sign... More

This is just one of the things you have to do when you visit LA. Check out the Hollywood-sign. And ofcourse get a picture with it just like every tourist.

This is a must see place for everyone that got to Los Angeles. So, make it part of your trip to make a "i've been there place"

Saw the sign after driving the Mulloland Drive, It is nice but not worth going out of your way. It is only famous for media advertisings and movies. Nothing special.

We went to see the sign on Canyon drive and it was the perfect spot! So beautiful out there! We had a lil trouble finding it at first but once we found it, it was the perfect place to take pictures! You cannot go to Hollywood without taking a picture with the sign ;)

An iconic landmark that everyone needs to see one in their lifetime. Can't get too close but you can get good pictures from the shopping center on Hollywood Blvd.
