Absolutely gorgeous location. Really breathtaking views all around. Very friendly and helpful people working here. Saw the film with a live narrator who was excellent.The most gorgeous sunset.Parking is limited, but lots of bus service and very clear signage for ride share pickup.And my first senior discount ?
An absolute must see! The view is amazing. Interesting and beautiful architecture. Free!Go early to ensure you get parking or you will have to park and walk. With young kids you will definitely need a stroller.The view of Hollywood sign is perfect! Many photo ops.
One of the best hikes in LA. You get some awesome views of all of LA and the Hollywood sign and you can check out the observatory which is really interesting. Generally just a cool place to hangout
