“Views!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 5, 2013

I went there for the observatory, but was pleasantly surprised by the grounds. You may want to get there in the mid afternoon to avoid traffic and crowds.

“romantic sunsets”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 27, 2013

well took a daytrip get-away to LA from the OC. and stop by Griffith observatory late afternoon/early evening right before sunset - parking was an issue - LACK OF SPACES in the 'actual lot' but plenty if you follow the road around the perimeter. just watch your step ,over the tree branches and bring a flashlight for the return trip back to car in the dark - don't want to fall.trip off the skinny dirt path ,back to car.

do order the ticket for the IMAX show - worth it, and allow time to explore the inside of the observatory, about 2+hrs at least. usually have amateur star grazers with their telescopes aim at some constellation?

dress warmly it WILL get chilly/cold at night.

“Hours of attractions”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 26, 2013

This is a perfect spot for hiking, as well as driving around. I suggest packing a picnic! My favorite spot was the observatory on top.

“Lots to do.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2013

I spent the afternoon and evening here. I started at the Gene Autry Museum, walked up around the old zoo, when on the carousel and ate ice creams in the beautiful park. Drove to see the "Hollywood Sign". We went the the observatory at night and found a nice restaurant to eat on Hillhurst Ave afterwards. Great for any age.
