“Finally we saw the real thing”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 21, 2013 via mobile

Me and my family travelled 14 hours fligt to Los Angeles, we wanted to see as much as possible. Especially we are Hollywood movies fans! Actually it's not interesting drove up as the road was narrow and single, some areas you can't see opposite car, drive slowly and carefully. Not much to see as the mountain just a residential area. Some reviews said old famous stars lived here, which we don't know so not special to us. But when we got close the sign we were happy coz we finally did it and thing uses to see on tv, was got so close in front of us!

“STUPID to drive up to THE HOLLYWOOD SIGN.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 20, 2013

The Hollywood sign is in a residencial neighborhood on a hillside. Nothing to see close-up!!!! You have to view the sign from below, miles away to see it. Some people are to DUMB, they drive up a steep mountain road, to see nothing.

“A nice hike and view”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 18, 2013

It's fun to take the hike up to the sign from griffith park, bring a buddy though. Those trails are kinda scary, especially at night.

“Must do when visiting LA”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 12, 2013

Definitely have to have your photo taken with the Hollywood sign. Plenty of places or advantage points in which to do it. Plenty of tours in Hollywood offer this as part of their tour. If you don't have a car or do a tour, you can go to the Hollywood and Highland Centre, and you can actually see the sign from there to take some photos.

“Must See”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 8, 2013

You've seen it in movies so why not experience the real thing. We drove up Mulholland Drive and stopped along the way and took a great photo. We hear you cannot get very close as you could in the past. Can't be missed. You can see the sign from many areas in LA, like Dodger Stadium. We took our photo right near Ron Howards home. Was really cool.
