we took the tour bus from Hollywood Blvd and went to the top to see the Hollywood sign - what a great experience! Have your picture taken appearing to hold the Hollywood sign. The views from the top are spectacular, a must see when in the Los Angeles area.

If you're in LA, you can't afford to miss the iconic yet easy Hollywood sign hike with great views of Hollywood, Downtown Los Angeles and more. Check out the full step-by-step directions and download a map on my website (theoutsidelife.com).

You can't go to LA without having your photo took infront of this sign!! Apart from that there is a brilliant view over all of LA so that is well worth the drive

Outside of that and having seen it in almost anything involving Hollywood, that is all it is. If you really must go up or around it, it is amazing how large it really is. I agree with the others and suggest getting a good photo op from the shopping center on the walk of fame.

If you are looking for the closest view place to see the HOLLYWOOD sign get in a car with a GPS and drive to 3387 Deronda Drive, 90068.

As people say, they are just letters. However, taking a picture is a must. I took a few from the santa monica hills. Driving up to the sign itself is not worth it.

took public transportation and walked. Yes we are crazy but it was really a fun time. Did the cliché pictures pretending to hold the sign up and having it look like the words were coming out of our mouths. Found out that some public transportation is cheep in LA. Created a great memory with my son. Finally something touristy but... More

We only had a short stop in LA so didn't have time to take the drive out to see the sign close up. Instead using a recommendation from TA we went to the shopping centre behind Graumans Chinese Theatre. Access is currently blocked to the top floor but if you go to the back of the shopping area and take... More

From memory I think we walked the Brush Canyon Trail, literally a dirt path that appears at the end of a street lined with houses. All I know is, we walked forever but the view was worth it. We were more side on to the sign rather than directly in front of it but just the fact we were close... More

This sign is great to see as it is so famous and you just have to see it to say you have. Take some photo's to prove it but nothing much else.
