Drive up Beachwood to find a good spot or best to walk it and stop at the cafe half way up. Google the best vantage point. Since there are many signs preventing folks from driving and parking, I am very surprised that no developer - my idea is for sale here haha - has yet build a rooftop viewing deck... More

From Hollywood and Highland Center, the fourth floor is an excellent view. Also, from the left side of Vine near Capital Records just north of the Hollywood Blvd intersection. I really wish that they would legalize a simple way for everyone to get closer, but until then, the dirt trails seem to be the only way. We stuck the boulevard... More

Trip to LA couldn't be complete without pictures of and with the sign! Griffith Observatory was our choice of viewing spot. Lovely day for it with good views of both the sign and the city. Bonus free parking and free observatory!! Win win

It was like impossible to get near to the Hollywood sign so we just took pictures on the street, can't remember the name, where the sign can be seen on photo. An ipad or iphone is applicable to take a photo with the sign appearing a bit big. A normal camera can take only an enlarged photo of the sign... More

Whats there to say? It's a sign. But a famous one at that, a iconic landmark of LA. It's one of those just must see/take picture of if you are a tourist in LA.

Well worth a visit to this iconic landmark to grab a photo or two. Best place to view this is at Griffith Observatory (free parking). There are lots of people around but sure to take in the fantastic views.

Although you will only be there for 20 minutes for a photo op, still worth the drive up the hill to see this iconic landmark in LA

It is something which I believe that any tourist visiting hollywood should do. There is not much to do beside the wonderful views and the photo shooting opportunity which will last as a nice memory.

Okay, so I'm re-posting this address that I got in a previous review from here ( 3204 Canyon Lake Drive, Los Angeles, CA 90068.), I put this address in my GPS and it took me way up hill in a close location for great pics. It's a bit of a hassle to park around here, but once you do this... More
