Driving along Mulholland Drive is a must for a visit to LA. Some of the views are amazing and it's also a pretty convenient (lighter traffic) route across town. It may not be the most exciting activity, but it's free and there are a number of places to pull off and snap some pictures of the amazing views.

Took the 2014 Mustang convertible for a nice drive from the 405 to the Hollywood Fwy. Fun drive and nice views of the valley and the city. Hollywood Bowl overlook is a must see, but it does get crowded and there is not much parking.

This was my third trip to LA, but my first time to visit Mulholland Drive. It will not be my last. Mulholland is a two lane road that winds across the tops of the mountains between Hollywood, Beverly Hills, and the Valley. The views are spectacular, and it is fun to see how the rich live. I drove Mulholland from the 101 freeway to the 405 in mid-morning. I would recommend this so that you can drive slowly, avoid the traffic, and enjoy the experience. People in LA drive fast so expect to get tailgated, and you will probably have to pull of the road often to let them pass.
Along the way you will pass the Laurel Canyon Dog Park, and the Coldwater Canyon Park which is managed by the Tree People and has great hiking. At one vista point you can look down into the Hollywood Bowl, and see the Capitol Records building. For me it was a pleasant escape from the freeways, and a nice way to spend a morning.

We spent an endless time in traffic and found the drive disappointing. Some nice houses but not many visible from the road. Lots of bars and security guards and a very closed in feel. We stopped in one of the vista points and were amused by the sign. No firearms or bow and arrows, perhaps they are scared that there might be a reincarnated Robin Hood lurking somewhere. Not worth the hassle of sitting in endless traffic, nicer things to do.

I enjoyed the drive, although there were often traffic queues at junctions along the way. Stopped at some of the vantage points to take photos (e.g. Hollywood sign). Would recommend it.
