Nice sign, stands out from other city signs

This sign has more pizazz to it then Las Vegas's sign or any others. I've never seen graffit on it and is an iconic piece known worldwide.

The best point to take the picture of this sign is Griffith observatory. It's a must-to-see attraction for everyone who first comes to LA. By the sign location itself, there is no permission for tourists to accede near. So this view point is the best point to take picture with Hollywood sign.

How can you go to LA and not see the Hollywood sign? There are many ways to go about it. My favorite is the Hollywood Bowl Overlook. (google it) Take Mulholland Dr. up to the overlook for a good view of the sign and the bowl. Not to mention the great houses on stilts you also get to see.

It was exciting to find the Hollywood Sign. Fist of all I drove to Hollywood Hills for a wrong place, by my mistake. So my colleague found on web instructions about the correct path and finally we could arrive on right place! Its not easy to park, pay attention! The unique problem is that don't have parking there and its... More

Nice easy hike to the sign and lot of opportunities for pictures. End of the hike was directly in front of the sign and also the end of Mulholland Drive!

A movie star jumped to her death after climbing the 'H'. For us, it was enough to look at the sign from a distance. It is still in great shape!

It's a must if you are near it in California! I love getting a picture with the Hollywood sign behind me.

Yes, it's iconic but that's it. It is just a big sign, you can see it from anywhere from sunset boulevard and also from universal studios. Other than that, up close and personal it is just another big sign just like a Coca Cola billboard. I still don't understand the hype.

Couldn't get as close to the sign as I would have liked, but it's definitely a must-see when you travel to Los Angeles.

It is just a god damn sign but it is iconic. I was not satisfied when I viewed it first from Griffith so we went hiking Mount lee and the view from there is fascinating.
