It's a must see in Hollywood seriously, being a bit of a movie buff I love Hollywood and everything about it. The best place I found to view the sign and gives you an amazing view of LA isn't actually the Griffith observatory, it is in fact a small look out on Mulholland drive looking directly over the Hollywood bowl.

Walking up to the sign, a good work out. Went behind the sign & in front of the sign itself. Two different routes, great view from the road behind the sign.

We walked to the sign from our Hollywood hotel. It was around a four hour trip where we saw lovely homes and easy to walk ( laugh steep) trails. Great views.

What a great experience !!! It's a simple place but it's so worthy to be there. Just make sure if you take a Uber put the address for Lake Hollywood Park.... it's so nice to be able to see a place that you have seem since you were a child... I love it.

We were lucky to have a good tour guide who took us to the perfect spot to see the Hollywood sign . Stunning views helped by it being a glorious sunny day.

I would have given this 5 stars except for the bad parking. I'll admit it; I'd never been there before, so there may be better parking, but we had as long of a walk from our car to the base of the hill, than from the base up above the sign. That being said, once you get up there, you... More

Makes me feel like an American with my photo under the Hollywood sign. Really Cool. It was on my bucket list and it proves to everyone that we were there

While taking a tour in Hollywood, we saw the Hollywood sign and received some history behind it. This was great. Great place for "selfies".

Don't cut the walk or drive short. Go all the way till the trail ends. It's worth it. Not as big as I imagined it would be, but still pretty neat
