No need to go up close. You can see this sign virtually anywhere on a hill in Hollywood. Good views from Griffith observatory and Mullholland Drive.

An Iconic sign my husband and i had been seeing in movies. We always wanted to see the sign. Upon our visit to LA, we took a tour which took us to where the sign was. Couldnt get too close to it. But a great place to take photos. Nothing very fancy about it. Can say that we have been... More

This is an iconic sign and great to get a pic. We took a tour to see the sign from mulholland drive- it was miles away and minuscule in our pics! The best view is from the balcony of the Hollywood Highland centre (Loews hotel) right on hollywood boulevard. It's the shopping centre with the stairs leading up- all the... More

Me and my wife had always wanted to see this sign since it is the quintessential LA landmark. However it was a little disappointing since you are way too far from it from the closest possible vantage point. Still worth it for us.

You really don't know until you get to Hollywood just how far away the sign is from all the best viewpoints. People use a trick with cameras where the photographer stands about 10-20 feet away and zooms up on you with the Hollywood sign in the background. This gives the illusion that you're close to the Hollywood sign. The best... More

I really couldn't believe when I got so close to this very famous sign. For a humble brazilian girl that means so much, it was a dream coming true. I could say that there is nothing excepcional, but yeah it's Hollywood baby, Hollywood sign.

The sign is awesome! There is parking underneath the sign but alas I could that close as the area was closed off for private event, but the sign was visible from where I was. The other place to see the sign clearly from is Hollywood & Highland Center or Griffith observatory. The worst thing about the sign was, its owned... More

We booked a tour to go there, but never made it. We did Rodeo Drive, it was okay, nothing special. The street was dirty and very hard to take photos as people just kept walking in front of you. So you patiently wait, but they just kept on coming. Our driver, Theresa, was fabulous, so full of information it was... More
