Views to see Hollywood sign from here are amazing! It was really busy when we went as it was a clear day but well worth a visit

Parking was really terrible when we visited, but the place has a great view of LA. There are limited options for lunch. Our kids really enjoyed their exhibits and planetarium show.

We drive up there on a late afternoon, don't be fooled though it can get busy. The planetarium was amazing. You can get some stunning photos overlooking LA, a beautiful sight.

It just has to be done. The drive up to it is beautiful too. As you near the top, you go through the tunnels (used in back to the future if you weren't aware) then arrive at the observatory. It's just a stunning building and worth a look.

for the space afficionados, this is a mandatory visit. Is a cool place to take picture of the Hollywood sign and of the city landscape.
