Took a city tour with friends. Was able to visit the site for the Grammy awards. Drove through the city. The guide was helpful and knew the information to inform visitors.Did not walk up very close to the sign but was able to get a few pictures. Maybe the walk up the trail would be worth it but I was...

We took photos from the shopping centre off Hollywood Boulevard. It is a must-do if in Hollywood. It is strange to see the aerials in our photos, as you tend to focus on the writing only when you see the sign on TV or in the cinema etc.

Very nice hike up from Griffiths. The trail was a little steep at times for our ten year old but we took our time and enjoyed the views along the trail. It was worth it to see the iconic sign from a new vantage point.

This is a must see in Los Angeles BUT... Could be difficult to access. Long dry trails to the bottom of the sign require some efforts. Get a good bottle of water!

Went sight seeing with girlfriends of mine from Georgia who had never been to Los Angeles. We enjoyed driving up the dirt road to see the Hollywood sign!

There are some fun and scenic drives that take you to photo ops. There is a regional park with parking and various places to takes photos with the sign in the background. You have to be careful because all of the access roads bring you through local neighborhoods and there are a lot of police monitoring traffic. It is fun... More

It's the hollywood sign. We drove up through a neighbourhood to get close, but you can see it from far and wide. Take a picture, get some palm trees in the picture if you can, and move on. It's a quick, free hit in LA.
