"Seeing the Hollywood Sign" Hollywood Sign Tip by RekaD

Hollywood Sign, Los Angeles: 34 reviews and 37 photos

The infamous Hollywood sign, nestled up in the hills, is visible from spots all over Hollywood. If you're just driving through, and look to the north, you're bound to see it. But if you want a really good look at the Sign, here are two of the best vantage points:

1) The Lake Hollywood Reservoir: Park your car on Lake Hollywood Drive and put on you running sneakers. The path around the man-made lake is 3.2 miles, and it's a favorite running path for Hollywood locals. And located directly below the Hollywood Sign, the lake offers some of the closest views you can find of the Sign.

2) Mulholland Drive Hollywood Bowl Overlook: On Mulhulland Drive (about a mile from the 101's Barham Blvd. exit) sits the Mulholland Drive Hollywood Bowl Overlook. On a clear day, you can see the ocean from here. But almost everyday, you can at least see the Sign. This spot is ideal if you want to photo of the Sign with yourself in the foreground.
