We loved driving around L.A. and seeing glimpses of the sign. We drove around and took lots of pictures. We loved the adventure of choosing which way to go next. The sign is a must see when you are in L.A. We drove up to the park and even saw a cougar roaming the park.

Climbing all the way to Mulholland just to get a view of the iconic Hollywood sign was simply breathtaking. Who would've thought that the Hollywood sign started off as a real estate gimmick to attract potential buyers. Now it is the symbol of the city of angels. Recommended for those who would want to know the history of the city.

Once in LA, there is one thing you must absolutely do, see the Hollywood sign! It's worth it and you'll also enjoy a great view of the city. If you go see the sign at Griffith Observatory, I'll recommend to also spend some time at the observatory. It very nice and the shows are great.

We went to Griffin Park to get a view of the Hollywood sign, where there was easy street parking. It's still a fair way in the distance but the view is clear and it's not crowded. The advantage of going here is that you can then visit the Observatory which is well worth a visit and is free - see... More

The sign is an icon of LA and you should definitely make sure to capture a picture. Most tours cover the sign and take you up to the sign in the Hollywood Hills...

This is my second visit to the sign and I feel it's more about the journey then the destination. You can take Mulholland Drive or another route, and see the neighborhoods while navigating the winding road. I stood there over 20 years ago and took a picture - it looks like my hand is holding the sign. And now many... More

It maybe just a sign but it is something you have to see when you visit LA. You can't get very close to it but there are plenty places you can get a good view of it.

The sign is an iconic piece of LA history, and can be seen from many different LA neighborhoods, but it's important to note that you can't actually drive up to it and that it's gated off. The hikes that lead "to the Hollywood Sign" actually take you BEHIND the sign. It's interesting and the pictures can be great, but the... More
