It need to be part of your pictures, a classic if you are in LA. Best place to take pictures is by Mt Lee Dr.

If you want a great picture you need to drive through Hollywood Hills to get there. The drive is over some twisting roads through a residential area that can be very tricky so go slow. The view once at the top is breathtaking not only of the Hollywood sign but of the city below and the mountains in the distance.... More

You need to be adventurous finding this. Theres a park in the area by it, just keep going up the winding roads. We walked up a small hill after parking and looked to the right and there was the D. Awesome, it was also so wonderful because we were also looking over LA at sunset. Best part of my trip,... More

The road to it is closed due to construction of a new residential neighborhood (boo) so you're sent from there to Griffith Observatory for your picture taking. I'm sure there has to be another way to get to it, we just weren't that adventurous. Take the time to figure it out.

This is one of the most iconic and recognizable signs in the world. There is definitely some magic about it. It's really hard to grasp what exactly makes so strong impression, but once you see it, you'll definitely remember it. There is so much complexity when you see those 9 letters. It's a busy crowded city below, a desert rock... More

Drove up there, getting a parking spot is really hard. Walking up to the holliwood sign is great, you got yourself a long walks before getting up there. Could be a good view of L.A but It was foggy!

It was the first thing we looked out for when we were driving from LAX and there it was, in the distance, just amazing to see. Such an iconic landmark and yes it is clearly visible from many, many vantage points around LA they are really lucky to have something so simple yet well known as a landmark.

The Take the trail to the Hollywood sign. It's worth making the trail that runs through the hills of the notice. Nature and the view of the place are amazing. It doesn't take too long.

What it started as a real estate sign for advertising the area it turned into a "must do" within Los Angeles attractions. Such an iconic landmark it has to be seen if you love this kind of things. You can access via a full hike or in a shorter and faster way. The full hike starts on Canyon Dr. and... More
