I drove along the length of Mulholland Drive and on to Hollywood Reservoir for a walk (separate review). This stop was busy, but a great look out. Recommended.

Go there by night. It's absolutely incredible how beautiful something can be. All city is sparkling and if you're lucky you can hear a sound coming from Hollywood Bowl, romantic or a great place to fix your thoughts.

Great views on three sides of: the Hollywood sign, downtown LA and the Hollywood Bowl. All the tours stop here so the little parking lot can get pretty congested (most people park on the side of the street) but worth the visit.

In this little park you can get one of the best views of downtown Los Angeles. Also, you get a decent view of Hollywood sign. I drove to this park. It was crowded, so almost no parking space, but you can park on the side of the road for a few minutes. Bring a good camera, so you can get... More

Had family in town and of course we had to make a stop here :) Wish the view would've been a bit better. Such a great view anyway.

This is a great spot to see Los Angeles in its ultimate splendor. A must drive just to take part of the day to do something relaxing. Take many photos and just take it in. My young girls found it fun taking selfies and only costs gas

It was incredible to see this structure from the Lookout. It would be fantastic to visit by night when there is a concert on.

After a disappointing visit to the walk of fame this made everything better. Not much parking but amazing views of LA that you will have seen in the movies including the Hollywood sign.

It's one of those great viewing areas. When you visit LA you should plan which views you want because it requires driving time. Co-ordinate this and where you're going to view the sign
