Good acoustics and an open air setting make the Hollywood Bowl a fun attraction. There are several concerts a year that are geared for varying tastes in music with some that include a fireworks show finale. Treat yourself to the tables in the front with dinner and wine for the LA DE DA experience.

This was part of the 2 hour tour and wow the views over Los Angeles were amazing. There is a small carpark then you can walk up about 70 steps to a small platform type are where you could see right over the Hollywood bowl and a great view of the Hollywood sign too! Worth a visit

Friday night at The Hollywood Bowl is s must if your visiting L.A. Garden Boxes are the way to enjoy a wonderful meal before the show starts. The doors open at 6. So you have plenty of time to have dinner right in your Garden Boxes. Then music starts at about 7:30. Under the start at The Hollywood Bowl never... More

I drive past here with visitors in the car - if there is parking, I pull over and we climb to the top and enjoy the views = stunning - it has become more and more popular over the years with tour vans/tourists and parking can be impossible - go early - avoid sunset unless you're being dropped off and...

A spectacular view of Los Angeles all the way to Long Beach, Catalina Island (on a clear day) the west side and more! I love coming here and taking in the view off of Mulholland Drive.

What a great free thing to do. And you get to experience the winding drive along the famous Mulholland en route. I believe it's open sunrise to sunset. There are only a few parking spots. I think I've ready that you can park on the street, Mulholland, but I didn't feel good about leaving a rental on the shoulder of... More

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.
