Stop along Mulholland Drive to see the view of the Hollywood Bowl. Get out and walk up the steps to see the Hollywood sign, downtown, and area. Entry is one way. No left turns into the overlook. Worth a 10-15 minute stop.Free.

The view from here is spectacular. The gates, however, are closed right now. The sign says it’s related to pandemic, so unsure when it will be open. There are several spots with a similar view along the road close, but none have quite the perfect view of downtown.

Many people don't know this but the Hollywood Bowl is FREE including the 2 level museum located there. They even offer FREE tours of the Hollywood Bowl for groups of 10 or more. They do close it at times according to the concerts/shows they have going on so you should check their web site of call them to ensure that's it's open during the time of your visit.

It's definitely a neat place to visit and so many entertainers have performed there including the Beatles. The views of this historic entertainment center are beautiful. It's located right off the 101 & Highland exit but I didn't notice a lot of parking available at the venue.

My visit was before the virus that essentially closed the Los Angeles area so I don't know what it may be like under current restrictions or even if it's open to the public for free touring.

If you're in the Hollywood area I definitely would recommend taking the time to checkout the historic Hollywood Bowl. There are a lot of steps so if you have problems with stairs or walking then this attraction could be more challenging even though I imagine they have elevators or ramps for wheelchairs.

Located on Mulholland Dr. the overlook gives you a chance to see the city panorama.On a sunny day whole LA is well visible, and it is a great spot to take a photo of the Hollywood sign! The only thing is that the parking lot tends to be extremely busy, so be careful while parking!

One of the joys of attending concerts here was bringing a picnic lunch or dinner complete with tablecloth, wine, candles the works. Just set it up on a nice patch of lawn and enjoy. Good way to people watch. It was years ago I was there but very fond memories of the concerts there.

The moment one comes into this arena of concerts and such one realizes the magnificent design and quality of the venue itself. The natural acoustics are remarkable and unsurpassed anywhere in the world. Excellent design of seating so that the stage is visual to any and attendees. Storied history and many phenomenal acts over many decades have played this venue.

I live in LA, and Mulholland Drive is one of my favorite rides in LA to take my visitors friends. The drive is along Santa Monica mountains ( actually hills), between what we call the City and the Valley. You can see both areas along the way. Hollywood Bowl Overlook along the way, has a beautiful view. If you travel in the summer Hollywood Bowl concert is a must!

Our Airbnb was nearby so we decided to drive up to this. It’s a fun drive up the canyon and you wonder what it’s like to live on the narrow winding road.

Be aware that the parking area is tiny! You may have to drive away, turn around, and come back to find a spot. You don’t need long here but it’s a pretty view. I’m sure it’s neat to see at night but, sadly it closes at 6 pm.
