  • I got some pics of the Hollywood Sign from the Griffith Observatory, but I got closer shots of the sign from Lake Hollywood Park. Sammy, my tour guide from the Hollywood City Bus Tours, said that...

  • After having lunch and the Beachwood Cafe (highly recommended!!!) we went for a great walk up to the Hollywood sign. It was a warm day however was well worth the truck up. You can’t get up in front of the sign but you can get up right behind the sign. There are ample opportunities for you to take photos on the way up where the sign is very clear. If you could do it I would say go all the way to the top, the view is absolutely rewarding and it is 360° We passed several people however the walk up is not crowded. Make sure you bring lots of water on a hot day!
  • What’s amazing about the Hollywood sign is the fact that it’s right in people’s backyard. You drive through neighborhoods to get there then wonder how it would be having so many tourists driving through your neighborhood. It was just plain old fun being there.
