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!

The trail to the sign was closed due to danger on the trail so you could only get far away shots or take the tour from the observatory which cost money. Honestly it's just a sign but a cool one. See it and take a photo and move one.

It is a good landmark but since you see it from so far away, this might not be really worth it. There's nothing really special about it.

The Hollywood Sign is the most iconic symbols of Southern California; this trek has been on my bucket list for many years, and in June of 2014, we achieved this adventure. The Hollywood Sign is accessible and it can and should be a go to destination at least once during your time in California. The hike is easy enough that... More

We searched for a vista point to get good photos of the Hollywood sign on our GAS and it took us to the Griffith Park. The clichéd photography session was done there. But the place does have an aura of awe in it. Felt great to be able to see this landmark in person.

If you want to drive up to see the Hollywood sign, there is a way to get there. My iPhone Maps App led me there, but here it is anyway: Get off the 101 Fwy at Barham Blvd. Go east and turn right on Lake Hollywood Dr. There's a sign that says, "NO HOLLYWOOD SIGN ACCESS" but there's access to...

It could have been great attraction, only if you can get closer to it. Apparently the best you can do is to hike for an hour from Griffith observatory only for slighly better view while sign itself is still too far away.

Just one of those things you have to say that you've seen when you visit LA/Hollywood...really nothing special. We drove through the narrow, windy back roads of the developments in the area to get a good vantage point to see the sign and take a picture. (The city prohibits you from getting too close so you can only see it... More

We had been seeing it from everywhere we went but we just had TO get up there and see it up close and personal. We took the drive up and made it there just by asking people we saw on the way - "Where's the Hollywood sign?" We knew we had found the perfect picture spot when we saw plethora... More

I lived on Deronda drive while studying acting in LA. this is without a doubt the closest and best place to view the sign. Go right to the top and it's very clear. On weekends the roads are closed and only residents are allowed, so give them a break on those days please! There are 5 fabulous other days you... More
