Perched atop Mount Lee, this global symbol of Hollywood glamour measures 450 feet in length with mammoth white letters, each standing 45 feet high, spelling out the name of the city. There is no access to The Hollywood Sign as it sits on restricted property however; there are several scenic view points which provide great photo opportunities . 1) Hollywood and Highland. Farther away but easy , especially if you are already in Hollywood. 2) The Griffith Observatory. Take the Metro Red Line at Hollywood and Highland to the Griffith Observatory stop. From here board the DASH Observatory shuttle operating 7 days a week ( beginning 3/21/17) to the front lawn of The Griffith Observatory for views of The Hollywood Sign. 3) The Sign is best viewed from the interior of Griffith Park. Trail signs will guide you to these sites. Please stay on the designated trails and enjoy the great views of The Hollywood Sign !

Cool view from Walk of Fame. Never got any closer. We were told we couldn't walk up to sign so we were content to just take a picture. Not sure what other options there were for closer views. Still, it's an iconic tourist destination.

Couldn't leave the LA area without seeing the Hollywood sign. Saw it. Never have to see it again. 🙃

It can be hard to see the Hollywood sign close up but the best place we found it to be seen was at Canyon Lake Drive. Yes it's just huge metal letters but it's got to be seen while visiting Los Angeles.

It's just a sign that's it, nothing else, but knowing that you still have to have a look and take a picture it's one of those sights you have to tick off and say I have seen it.

It's a sign. We took our pics along Hollywood Boulevard so it was an easy vacation picture. No need to pay for this

Nice long drive into the hills to this hilltop site where the view is unique. Can get very close to the sign for photos/selfies. Bring tourist standards: water, camera/video, good walking shoes.

You got to see it to feel it! Can be viewed from most parts or can book a tour way up close to the sign. Either way it is a wow factor. Dream come true! :)

Need long distance lense. Perhaps it could with a coat of paint. Beware if costume folk dragging you in to have a photo it could cost you.

We drove up Mulholland Highway in Hollywood Hills. As far as we were allowed, then parked and walked less than 5 minutes to reach the sign. At Mulholland & Ledgewood Drive, continue north of Mulholland until you need to... More

Best thing to do would be rent a car being things are very spread out.
