Major tourist attraction

We hiked up the hill to the Griffith Observatory to see this famous landmark. Really great to see such a famous landmark. Too bad the cell tower has to be right there ........

There's just something about this very famous sign. We went to a Griffin park to get a great shot of the sign and see a very popular spot to shoot movies. You can't go home if you don't take the picture so do it from the best vantage point you can.

This is an eponymous symbol of Hollywood, get up close and personal with the sign. Park down below and take a photo with it in the background, or hold it up with your hand and you will look huge. When I saw it last it was white-washed and it looked clean.

As I'm an East Coast girl, my dream like most preteens and teens was to one day see the Hollywood sign. Cross another item off my bucket list! I must admit that it did not look as tall as I had expected, but still it was magical to see it and to be able to photograph it. What some may... More

I've seen it so many times in movies and on TV so it was nice to see it live from Griffith Observatory and the Hollywood & Highland complex. I only wish that I could have seen it from a closer viewpoint.

I have always wanted to see the Hollywood sign and finally got the chance to today. It was good to see to knock it off my bucket list but nothing more.

Cops and Park Rangers patrol the immediate sign area 24/7, so be careful about getting too close! It is illegal! The terrain is no picnic either! Here are a few legal places I have found work after spending three years living on Argyle Street while in Grad School at UCLA. The view from Griffith Park observatory is adequate, but off... More

I can now say I have seen the sign in person! We didn't get to hike up to it, the trails were closed the day we went but there was some pull off places you can get out and take pictures.

I work in Hollywood and drive up Gower every night and there it is at the top if the street! It's so iconic,makes me a little nostalgic for old Hollywood. Super cool to see, but you cant get to it, so dont even try! The neighbors on Beachwood don't like tourists, so stay on Gower for some good pics.

This is the Hollywood sign. If you're not from LA it's a tourist must see/photo op. Whilst you can see it from the Hollywood Walk of Fame, it is really too far away for your camera to pick it up. We got our best shots from the Griffith Observatory, which has great views from the right side of the sign.
