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

You don't have to go up the hill to see the sign, unless you want a great view of Los Angeles. The sign can be viewed from many locations along Hollywood Boulevard, but a great spot is the shopping centre at the corner of Hollywood Boulevard & Highland Avenue. The centre has been designed so you can see it from... More

In all honesty, I wasn't very excited about seeing this in the Hollywood hills as I saw it as nothing more than a sign. I really enjoyed the drive towards the sign and I got some of the best photos of my holiday with my partner at the sign. Some great photo opportunities all over LA with the sign and... More

We followed the directions from apple maps: 3204 Canyon Lake Dr. Los Angeles, CA 90068. And viewed the sign from the closest spot possible. Full sign view - the drive there was simple and enjoyable. Lots of good spots to take pictures. Teens were just excited of taking pictures - to them, this completed their visit to Hollywood! :)

It's unfortunate that the only way to really get up close is to hike. For something that was a real estate sign which turned into something iconic they need to make it accessible for all.

I wasn't impressed. All the hype about seeing the sign, It's just a sign and driving up there with the amount of people that were there, I could just take a picture from afar. I've seen better.
