As part of exploring the hills, made a point of stopping here. The view of the Bowl is worth it alone, but if you wander off the trail along a ridge-line you will get great views of Downtown L.A. and the freeway. Did notice that some city-tour companies stopped here, if you don't have your own car.

The concert series is not to be missed...lots of music choices...It is a great place to be in summer nights...I usually book a series of concerts...take the shuttle from Orange Court...makes the parking situation a lot easier...

You have to go see a performance at the Hollywood Bowl! The atmosphere is amazing and you will have a great time guaranteed. It is recommend to park at Hollywood/Highland as traffic gets very busy. You can also picnic at the venue before end and continue during the cooncert5.

Just saw Black Sabbath play there. Nice amphitheater. Lots of vendors selling shirts, food and drinks. Great experience at the venue. The parking on the other hand is a pain. Due to stacked parking you can't get out unless the people around you leave. That's why I can't give it a 5 star. Otherwise it's a fun venue.

Went here a few weeks ago to watch my childhood hero band ELO come and play here for the FIRST time in their history. The venue, the sound and the surrounding is mind-blowing. I am sure it was the same for the band. There is SO much history here that you must experience a gig. An evening I shall never... More

I have been to numerous concerts at hundreds of venues in my 50 years, some seriously amazing places. This was an out of body experience!!! Came just to see my all time favorite group ELO and it did not disappoint. The fact that we upgraded to box seats really made it even more fun. We enjoyed a picnic dinner with... More

Came here after some pressure from my Hollywood resident friend, to see a band that i'd class as before my time...but they (ELO) and the LA Philharmonic and the venue itself were AMAZING! You can take your own food and drink..I think its actually a tradition to do that...which is unheard of at most venues, and from where we sat... More
