For me, this is the best spot to see the Hollywood sign. It's easy to park in front of the park, and take pictures and if you go up around it, towards the sign, there are spots where you can take really good pictures that if you angle your camera, it appears you are right in front of the Hollywood...

Add on to your tour of the Hollywood Hills with that private cab tour!!! Must do & be sure to order a picnic lunch box for the whole day's journey :-). If you're on a quick trip, the pre-packed lunch saves so much time; eat in the car or take outside for the views. Don't waste time going to a... More

If what you want is a GREAT picture of you and the Hollywood sign this place is your best bet. I searched all over for a place where the letters would be clear to read in the photo, this was by far the best place I found! Its only a 20 minute car ride from Hollywood Blvd.

It's a PITA to get too with a lot of winding roads but once you get there and find a parking spot it's worth the trip. Get awesome pictures and bragging rights that you saw the famous hollywood sign. It's only a sign but a landmark. Go there. Get there. Take pictures and say you saw it

I could not care less about the sign really. But it is amazing how you get caught in the moment of wanting to get the best photo of the sign. The best photo of the sign is here. The place has no other known attraction! Park carefully. There is lots of enforcement.

This is probably one of the best spot to see the Hollywood sign. However the walk around the lake/reservoir (1hour20) isn't that nice given that you walk all the way around fence (left and right); thus you cannot fully enjoy the nature as you feel in prison.

In order to get to lake Hollywood park you have to drive up a very narrow and winding road. We went on a Friday morning around 11 am and there were only a handful of people. You will need to park your car on a steep hill. This park allows dogs so be careful of dog poop. If you keep... More

Avoid this location because the neighborhood is unfriendly and there is no parking. There are always Police and Rangers present, and traffic officers issue tickets for anything. Go to Mount Hollywood Drive, or Runyon Park for a good experience.

If you like that sort of thing, this is the park for you. Not a place for kids. The off-leash rules, parking are completely unenforced and it's overflowing with smoking tourists. Already had a fire and kid's bitten there. Residents avoid it.
