Look, it's LA, this is a must do attraction, but only because of where it is and all that. Unless you have a high zoom camera you are not going to get a good shot. Lots of roads are closed and getting close unless you have some local knowledge is out of the question. Tour buses won't take you up... More

My husband and I were on our Honeymoon in November 2014. We got a great few of the sign from the Griffith observatory. You could do two things at once. It's a great few from up there.

Yes, it is must see sign and take picture, but the neibourgs do not agree. Too many aods are closed. The buses and vans cant go anywhere close. You need good zoom in to you camera.

It's history, and it's likely the most well known sign in history. You can see it right from the Hollywood Walk of Fame or you can drive up Mulholland Drive to the Hollywood Bowl Overlook to get a great view of it.

Parked our car in one of the lots at Bronson Canyon. Easy access to the trails from there. Super close view of the Hollywood sign. Awesome 6+ mile hike with great views of LA. Take plenty of water!

Agree with others, if you drive towards the sign you can find a street and snap a quick picture. Was there in Jan 2015 and access is "closed" but if you wind around the streets you can get pretty close.

Just below the sign is a residential neighbourhood where most people end up after a bit of driving around.It is funny to see folks, including myself and my wife, running into the middle of the road, camera or I-phone/Pad in hand to get "The Shot " Remember, this is Hollywood. Not as bad as it sounds as this is a... More
