This is a great spot to get a good view of the Hollywood sign and the city. We were staying close by and went at night and then again in the morning. Beautiful. There are only about 6 parking spots so I can see it being quite crowded at times. Definitely recommend.

The place is good place to see hollywood sign and LA silhouette. Also Hollywood bowl could be seen from there. Parking place is really small, and all shoulder sections are "no park" zones.

You can see the Hollywood sign fairly closely and see expansive views of the the city from Downtown LA to the Pacific Ocean.

Had fun at a lot of concerts over the years here. The venue really is the best part of this experience.

Acoustics and atmosphere here are incredible, surrounding by mountains, is a different experience than closed building venues.

The drive up the narrow Mullholland Dr. is well worth it: This overlook offers a close to complete view of the entire Los Angeles area, and it is spectacular.

It's a very nice, serene little spot that feels removed from the tangle of traffic below, although it's unfortunately small with extremely limited parking due to its hillside location. The Hollywood sign was completely obscured by fog when I visited, which I gather happens relatively often, though the view of the city and surrounding hills was still quite nice. Take... More

Visited while on a Hollywood tour. Very nice amphitheatre. Here is where many orchestra performances are held in LA. Also, summer concerts and music festivals such as the pop music wango tango. We viewed from the hills. Looks like it would be a nice place to experience during a warm summer evening some musical talent while in LA or SoCal.

This place certainly proves the adage that the best things in life are free. I was in LA with my family and we took a drive to this point. What a splendid view it affords of the places around, including the famous Hollywood sign. We spent close to an hour at the place and all of us really liked it.

Thank tvsinha
