The Hollywood sign is an icon of L.A. You have to see it once in your life! There are so many good places to see it and take pictures of it!

OK ...Guess everyone's got to see the Sign. My Son and I rode (On Harley Davidson Motorbikes) up the small twisty roads lined with expensive houses. Got as far as you could go by bike . Where you can walk the remainder up a path .Not for the faint hearted or to do it in the Sunny Heat of the... More

We were shown the sign from a distant, but it is only a sign, don't waist your time on that, better to visit more important attraction than it

You can see the sign from any number of venues including the Hollywood Walk of Fame. You get a great view at Griffith Observatory but We traversed it up to Canyon Lake Road to get closer to the sign. You really can't get much closer so it really depends upon what you like and how much time that you have.... More

The sign is most certainly a must see but while I found one walking tour that claims it get close, it seems the city and most other tour companies feel It is best to see from a distance.

It was neat to see the Hollywood sign. It is smaller than you think but there is a neat story that goes with it. If your in the area go to the Observitory and see it. Glad we did.

The best way to view the sign is to go up North Beachwood Drive, off Franklin Ave. You can't get to the actual sign as it is locked now. But the best photos will be on Beachwood. Visit the Beachwood cafe if you want to hang out in the little village just past the best viewing point. It's very Hollywood... More
