If you're in LA, then you have to come here. For the stunning views, for the James Dean Statue, for the observatory, for the Hollywood sign, for the air, for the amazing feeling that you have when you're overwhelmed by everything around you.
It is both the nature made and man made attraction that is more than just worth a look.
You feel Los Angeles beneath. Its bright burning sun, its refreshing winds at the top of the hills.
You feel life looking at the city.

If you want to see some incredible views of LA and the surrounding areas head up to Griffith Park and follow the trails to the highest point in the Park. The trails are wide and easy to hike. The Park also allows you the closest access to the "Hollywood" sign.

We attended the Planetarium presentation which I enjoyed. Other than the view and a walk through the observatory, there is not much else to do, so plan to include it. The air conditioned theater is pleasant if you visit on a hot day.
For photo buffs on vacation, you are presented with spectacular views of Los Angeles, the iconic Hollywood sign, and surrounding suburbs. You can see all the way to the coast if the air quality allows for it - not a given.
Midweek visits will help to avoid some of the crowds. Parking is always an issue, and you may have to walk some distance on busy days. Still, it is worth the drive, and an easy tie-in with a trip to the Los Angeles Zoo.

We had a blast at the park over the weekend. This is one of the coolest things to do in the city and you will learn something while you are there.
