We have been here before, but enjoyed just as much the second time. A great spot to overlook the city!

The view from the Griffith Observatory is definitely better. It is $4 for parking, but well worth it.

It's a quick stop to the right when driving along Mulholland Drive toward Universal City. There are a couple places within a short walk walk to get a better view. Very easy access.

The iconic Hollywood Bowl is a should see. Take note you can walk in and look around for free, just be respectful and take the walk up the steep hill. Enjoy

The view is absolutely stunning. Nowadays, there are police posted here on nights when the Bowl is happening but I used to love to stop and listen to the music wafting up to the overlook. The view, in winter, is stunning. All of the lights...More

We were on a bud tour and had a chance to stop and view the Bowl from a cliff along with the Hollywood Sign. Neat stop but it looks like a Bowl..

Well it is not a "must go" if you ask me. Just a spot along the route to see the Hollywood sign. There are of course tour buses that you can pick, but it is really an easy drive with a GPS, so, if it is busy, just come back... More
