The Hollywood Sign - Los Angeles

The most iconic sight in Los Angeles, the Hollywood Sign sits high up on Mount Lee and towers above the cityscape.

It's so much more than just nine white letters: the Hollywood Sign is now one of the world's most famous sights, with the best views of the sign itself caught from the likes of the Griffith Observatory and the Highland Centre.

To get up close to the sign, head out on an aerial helicopter tour for a birds eye view; or, embark on one of the many Griffith Park hiking trails on Mt. Hollywood. You can even sign up to a Sunset Ranch tour to visit the sign by horseback. No matter how you get there, or how you spot it, be sure to have your camera at the ready.
