The famous sign

You can see the sign from anywhere in Hollywood I think. It was cool to see for firt time California explorers but at the end of the day its just a sign.

Great hike up the Hollywood hills. Unfortunately the sign is fenced off but the views are spectacular. Parked in Griffith park and an easy hike to the top.

Windy road and still too far up. but you could see the Hollywood sign from ontop of a hill where I guess its the main stop over for sight seeing. A good experience though,i would recommend you take a local tour operator to explain the historical aspect of the sign.

If only you could get closer..... You have to drive through windy little streets to get to an oval where the sign is still a fair way away. BUT having said that, it is still the HOLLYWOOD sign and at the time, it was still something we were able to cross off our "to-do-list" on our holiday from Australia. We... More

Maybe it was down to lack of research but I didn't realise you couldn't get that close to the sign, although we had a car hired and the drive up there was amazing. Well worth seeing and glad to say I've seen.

Ok so wind through small roads to get close enough to take a picture of a billboard if that is your idea of fun. Its a landmark.....kind like the California mudslides.... but you may want to spend your time doing something more productive.

We saw it from far away and it really is only a sign on the mountains. It was a bit of a let down as it was supposed to be one of the highlights of LA

Ok so its a sign, and its a bugger to get anywhere close, we spent a whole morning driving around trying to get a good snap shot, and eventually (more by luck than planning) we did. Where we were when we took our pictures I havent a clue being honest, but it was a busy street and I had to... More

The Hollywood Sign offers many entrances, almost from every direction, if I'm feeling adventurous as always, I take the west entrance, when I'm feeling like I need a real workout, I come from the Observatory (11 miles round trip), and when I'm bringing my 9 year old and my 12 year old I take the south entrance (3 mile round...
