Expected to just see an old familiar sign. But, what a treat. Drove up north beechwood drive and got my first glimpse of the sign. I got so excited I pulled over and started taking pictures!!!! Ledgewood drive to Mulholland highway is another close up view. Mulholland highway to canyon lake drive has an area to park and take great... More

This sign is such an icon that everyone wants to see it at least once. We tried to drive to the closest lookout point near Mt Hollywood Drive but there is limited parking and they close the road when parking gets too full. Best place we found to see it was off of Mulholland Drive at the very first lookout... More

Rode to top of drive. Not much parking. Didn't want to take the long hike up to the actual sign. Loved the curvy road and terrific, but small houses along the hillside. Very scenic drive.

The sign is iconic! We saw it from the road, the town, and finally from the Griffith Observatory. Took 20 photos at least....

The only thing special about seeing the sign, is the fact that you are seeing the sign. It is well worth it, and lets face it, if you have been to LA, everyone will ask if you saw the Hollywood sign. It's a cool thing to do, so just do it and enjoy yourself

Iconic so had to check it out. Read on here about an address on Deronda Drive but we somehow took a wrong turn and ended up at Scenic Overlook and was pleased with that view. If in LA just need a quick stop to take some great pictures and move on. We weren't interested in climbing the trails.

I took the tour hollywood star tour, whereby it was about 1 hour touring around the houses of the holly wood stars. You get to see posh houses in the hollywood itself, crossing over to brevely hills too! If i remember, it cost about US$ 47/ pax. That includes the Madame Tussade tour ( wax museum). Go for the roofless... More

If you're hiking up to see the sign like we did, have a look on Google earth before you go. There are a couple of forks with no signs (on the trail we took), and you don't really want to get lost up there. We took the brush canyon trail which took around 1.5 hours to walk up and about... More

As the title suggests: what's a visit to LA without a trip to the sign? Unfortunately you can't actually get to the sign at the moment unless you take a bus from Griffith Observatory so the next best thing is to take a trip into the Hollywood Hills to get the best view possible. We went up Beachwood Drive and... More

Meh !! Just a lot of hype !... Got sucked in, did a tour to see Hollywood sign, still from quite a difference...barren, scrazzy area..so disappointed. Got another view of it...which was a much nicer experience.... From Hollywood Boulevard. Opposite Il Cappitan Theatre. So forget the expensive tour.... Check it out from Hollywood Boulevard
