It's better form far away...not really worth it to drive all the way up to see it. You are much better off seeing other things.

A must see due to the nature of the place, but anywhere past the 'main' block with the chinese theatre is dirty and a bit run-down.

The sign is 14 m high and 110 m long. It was build initially for an advertisement in 1923; and they left it there. It is one of the things to see while in LA because it has become an iconic sign.

We were on a tour and this was pointed out to us, it can be hard to spot at first, but once you know its there you see it all the time. The history of the sign was told to us, which was also interesting, iconic view.

Everybody has seen the Hollywood sign on TV, but to see it for real is amazing. A must visit attraction if you're visiting California.

Had a great time in Hollywood. Its a tourist trap, bout it was fun. Seeinf the hand prints and footprints of the stars and wondering how their hands & feet were so small. All the characters dressed up for a photo opt for a buck or two. All the shops and the Hollywood sign. It was great.

Staying in Hollywood

Neighborhood Profile
Hollywood
Hollywood undoubtedly conjures up images of movie stars and high-end lifestyles, and to this day, tourists flock here from around the world to see the iconic Hollywood Walk of Fame, Chinese Theatre and to catch a glimpse of the famed Hollywood sign up close. Celebrity impersonators and crowds give these areas the feeling of an amusement park while many clubs and hotels fill up around the weekends for late-night partying - the Hollywood club scene is a haven for thumping music and table-side bottle service. But parties aren’t the only way to enjoy this area, many visitors come to the neighborhood to sit back with a picnic to watch a performance at the Hollywood Bowl and those looking to stay fit trek along nature trails in the Hollywood hills and in Griffith Park.
