We did enjoy this and the view is stunning, but it is so busy and quite hard to get to in an Uber depending on when you go. Worth the visit, but take your patience with you. We took an Uber there and the bus...More

This is a must visit in Los Angeles because it is so definitively iconic. It's perched on the edge of a Hollywood Hills promontory so the views are spectacular! I've been in 40+ countries and still recommend this. And spend some time inside. If you...More
Beautiful views from Los Angeles and the Hollywood sign.
My friend and I were surprised that the entrance was free!

If you choose to walk on the south side of the hollywood hills you should only plan on doing so from December to March. They are hot and dry the rest of the year. I have walked thousands of miles in California, but would never contemplate walking to the Hollywood sign, if you must go, ok, but do not start at Griffith Observatory.
