Owner description: Perched atop Mount Lee, this global symbol of Hollywood glamour measures 450 feet in length with mammoth white letters, each standing 45 feet high, spelling out the name of the city. There is no access to The Hollywood Sign as it sits on restricted property however; there are several scenic view points which provide great photo opportunities . 1) Hollywood and Highland. Farther away but easy , especially if you are already in Hollywood. 2) The Griffith Observatory. Take the Metro Red Line at Hollywood and Highland to the Griffith Observatory stop. From here board the DASH Observatory shuttle operating 7 days a week ( beginning 3/21/17) to the front lawn of The Griffith Observatory for views of The Hollywood Sign. 3) The Sign is best viewed from the interior of Griffith Park. Trail signs will guide you to these sites. Please stay on the designated trails and enjoy the great views of The Hollywood Sign !

Great hikes in the area. Follow with a healthy lunch at Gratitude Cafe on Larchmont Ave. Wonderful way to spend a weekend afternoon.

“Just had to see it!”

While looking around Hollywood went to the fourth level of the Hollywood and Highland mall, which was a nice mall and got good views of the sign

You can't really take a visit to Hollywood without seeing the iconic symbol of the city! The cool thing is that you can really see it from may places, and there are several opportunities to get good photos. Probably the coolest was just driving around town and looking up and seeing it from the car window...very neat!

“A typical tourist must see”
Reviewed October 5, 2012

Our friend drove us to see the Hollywood sign before heading off to the zoo. We were able to take some good photos, but it was a shame that we could not get closer. A definite 'must see' for all tourists.
