Beautiful to see!

Perfect pull-over spot to see the whole area. Beautiful with added bonus of Hollywood sign in the opposite view.

This is a great place for views similar to those you see from Griffith Park (Where La La Land was filmed), especially at night. Griffith Park can get frustratingly congested on summer evenings, but the view from here is equal. A few miles further west on Mulholland Dr is another view of the San Fernando Valley, which is another quintessential... More

There are several excellent overlooks along Mulholland drive, but this one gives you a unique view over the Hollywood Bowl and farther east towards the downtown skyline. Worth a stop if you're driving along Mulholland.

From Hollywood Bowl Overlook you can have beautiful vista over Los Angeles. You can have a shot of LA Downtown in the horizon.

This venue is a much overlooked (seasonal) Hollywood destination where you can enjoy a picnic as you listen to great music. Cost range is OUCH! (for a box if you can get one through a broker) to wow! only a few bucks for the cheap seats! Classical, pop and jazz music depending on the night. When they speak of "The... More

I know it's a classic & old venue in LA, but oh my goodness its the WORST. Basically parking is a disaster with cars piled on tops of each other for $20 each, second it's a nightmare to leave/enter due to traffic on show days. Third, if you're not front row you basically cant see anything and the acoustics are... More

This is a great spot to get a good view of the Hollywood sign and the city. We were staying close by and went at night and then again in the morning. Beautiful. There are only about 6 parking spots so I can see it being quite crowded at times. Definitely recommend.

The place is good place to see hollywood sign and LA silhouette. Also Hollywood bowl could be seen from there. Parking place is really small, and all shoulder sections are "no park" zones.

You can see the Hollywood sign fairly closely and see expansive views of the the city from Downtown LA to the Pacific Ocean.
