As part of the Ultimate Hollywood Tour, we stopped at the Hollywood Sign and Hollywood Bowl overlook for photo opportunities. It was a great viewing point of the valley.

This is a small parking area overlooking the Hollywood Bowl, downtown LA, and has steps up to a vantage point to see the Hollywood Sign. Tight spots to park - lot of tour vans stop here and can be busy. Park closes at sunset.

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
