I got a nice picture from Griffith Observatory. If you are in LA get a picture just because you never know.

Yes, and you can't move directly to these letters because this place surrounded by a fence for security. So this is better to take a place on nearest hill and this is better to view letters but not climbing on them. Together you receive a full view of LA! Straight from beginning to... no, you've never can see the end... More

Best place to view it from is 3387 Deronda Dr, Los Angeles, CA 90068, which I learned from other Trip Advisor members. It's worth the drive to say you've done it but you can get pictures from various other places if you google best places to view! Griffith Observatory or the Griffith Dog Park were also good recommendations.

We saw the sign from several viewpoints but found it difficult to find a great place to get close for a picture of this famous landmark. To be honest it's just a sign but it's what it stands for..... we were in HOLLYWOOD baby! Kids thought I was crazy spending so much time trying to locate a good view. Oh... More

Multiple attempts to hike up to the Hollywood sign and we finally made it to the top. The trail we did started from where the Bronson caves are at and it's probably <10 miles and almost 4 hours of hiking. It has a well defined dusty and dirt terrain trails. I would think it's moderate level of a hike. The... More

Not at all what I expected... We had to search to find it, always thought it was imposing and would get that WOW factor but sadly not!

Expect narrow winding roads to get a photo of the sign, roads are high up in the hills with very tight corners and steep hills. If you're not very confident in your rental car don't bother! It's a free attraction obviously but don't expect to get up close to it. Worth doing

It has a great view. The road to get to the sign is beautiful. Nice place to take pictures. There is just the sign to see it so don't wait more than that.

Just got back to London from our first visit to LA and had a wonderful four night stay at the Loews Hollywood hotel where we had a superb view of the iconic Hollywood sign from our suite on the 17th floor. It's such a shame it does not get lit up anymore, apparently it used to but LA wanted to... More
