There really isn't anything particularly wonderful about this sign. It's famous is about what its got going for it.

We drove around bel ait and Beverly Hills fantasising about which mansion we'd own before seeking out the best view of the sign! We think it has to be from the Griffith observatory ! But the pic below shows it from our hotel room

We had fun looking at The Hollywood Sign from many different areas of Los Angeles. We saw it from Culver City and the Griffith Observatory and closer views from the Hollywood Hills. I wish they would change it back to Hollywoodland. It is just an okay symbol for one of the largest cities in the world.

You get a really clear view of this by going to Hollywood Highland on the Metro, then taking a right and a left to take your photos from the vantage point.

Great views and really nice walk into the Hollywood Hills. Make sure you notice the exact route you took to come up because you could get lost like we did on the way back and end up in a neighborhood where you can't find your car again.

My view of the Hollywood Sign was included in a tour of Hollywood homes. We stopped at the sign and were able to view the sign as close as you can get (a fenced guards the sign against vandals. From our vantage point you could see the sign and down the mountain was the Hollywood Bowl! What a view.

Traveled to California to be on television game show, "The Price Is Right!" Visited Hollywood and got a pic of the Hollywood sign and a few stars on the Hollywood Walk of Fame! Great trip!

This is a good hike even if you are not in good shape. None of us work out. My friend's 70 year old mom did the hike. We took a simple lunch to eat at the sign site and take in the views.

It was fascinating to see the Hollywood sign from so many places we visited during our stay in LA, such an Iconic sign, and its pretty big. When I was living in LA in the 70's you use to be able to go up and take pictures with but I do not think that is the case now.
