After you have seen them all- the Studios, the Chinese Theater, Holliwood Blvd, homes of movie stars, etc, -you deserve a break. Do yourself a favor and get going to Griffith Park - the largest, most "natural" urban park. This is Nature at it's best. Preserved forests, brooks, tracks (you actually can visualize Indian chiefs floating by...) yet, from the... More

We hiked to the top and saw the amazing view. Incredible! The path was wide enough to accommodate a lot of people. The parking can be difficult however.

Visited Griffith Park and Observatory this past weekend and couldn't begin to take it all in. The exhibits are fascinating starting with the perpetual clock at the entrance. Plan for an opportunity to go into one of the planetariums. Entertainment for adults and children as well.

First of all, we originally tried to come to Griffith's Park/Observatory on a Sunday, but after seeing the super long line of cars trying to get in, we turned back and returned a few days later during the week. This was a great decision as although there were people there, their weren't many. So we took about an hour and... More

I go to Griffith Park at least once a week as one of it's entrance gates is close to my house. I love the tranquility of it's trails, the wonderful views, the birds, the flowers and especially the fact that I can bring my dog Mostaza with me --She always has the best time! The park has on-leash signs all... More

Griffith Park is many things...its a cycling mecca, has soccer fields galore, baseball fields in abundance, golfing, hiking, horseback riding, and an old beautiful 90 year old merry go round that are just a few of the many awesome things that await you in the park. Griffith Park is also home to the L.A. Zoo, Griffith Park Observatory, The Autry... More

Griffith Park and the Observatory offer some of the most stunning views of L.A., On a clear day you can see from downtown to the ocean and south all the way to Long Beach. If you visit at sunset and stay until dark you will be rewarded with lights that seem to go on forever. The observatory is beautiful and... More

Go here and take your time to do a few hikes. On the way you vet a good view of the Hollywood sign and of Los Angeles.
