You know you have hit the jackpot when it’s busy, like really busy so bear that in mind. The other major negative is parking- seriously the rates they charge are an absolute scam hence my review reduced to three stars. The views are beautiful, panoramic...More

We went up to Griffith Park for the views only, you need to go early to Avoid parking fees, before midday week days and before 10am weekends. The view from the top is great and worth a ride up to the top. Toilet facilities are...More

We took an Uber there from Hollywood and Highland shopping centre. The views are really good and this was the closest we got to the sign. On the way back my daughter saw a coyote in the woods.

Parking might be tricky also because it is prepaid 10 dollar per hour. After that you will get a view on LA and the Hollywood sign. The museum is also interesting, with video shows, meteorites, explanation about the universe and time on earth.

A simple stroll or a multi-hour hike are a perfect complement to visiting the observatory. I visited the park multiple time, and always liked it. Next: see the views at night.
