Frank Lloyd Wright stunner

One can imagine the Doors or Beatles playing here to thronging crowds. This style of amphitheater is not built any more!

This satiated the kids need to have a pic with the hollywood sign. They were happy! And the drive on Mulholland affords nice views all the way toward Santa Monica.

Wasn't to the overlook to get a great view of the Hollywood sign. There are only about 10 parking bays and during the day the parking gets full of sightseeing minibuses. There is one disabled bay available. There are 20+ steps up to the main viewing area but the view is great. The drive along Mullholland Drive is spectacular too.... More

The Hollywood Bowl is such an iconic place. It's great to attend a concert there, but it requires a lot of planning - e.g. special buses, pack lunch at (Whole Foods) and be able to wander around. Driving by on Mulholland Drive can also provide a view of the iconic landmark.

We were wandering around exploring and came across this spot on the internet when I said I wanted to go to mulholland drive and decided to go here. You will not be disappointed! The view was amazing.

Beautiful view, not only of the Hollywood bowl but also LA, and the Hollywood sign. Very peaceful. We were there really early in the morning only a couple of other cars there. We pulled into the lookout from the right and then turned left when we left - no issue with traffic that early. Perfect view - especially since we... More

Having never been here before, I was taken aback by the sheer size of the place. I've been to many venues of all different sizes, but this place is special. It is an amazing place to see a concert. We were there to see The Nightmare Before Christmas performance and had seats in section K1. The sound is amazing! Sometimes... More

Want a perfect place to see LA? Mulholland Drive is the place to go! The view is spectacular!! You can see the Hollywood sign and the million dollars homes that surround it!
