Hollywood Sign

by tracyskf Online Now Jan 28, 2009 at 12:09 AM

I read somewhere that we can have a good view of Hollywood sign on Hollywood & Highland centre? Is this true?

Please let me know where to best catch this and have a picture that is clear (without background of crowd).

Thanks!

    I thought the view of the Hollywood sign from Griffith Park up near the Griffith Observatory was quite good with no obstruction.

    This website shows the view from Hollywood & Highland

    I agree that the Griffth Observatory is the place to get an unobstucted view of the sign. I have a picture of the sign (regular distance, no zoom) on my VT Los Angeles home page. See: "THE LAND OF BROKEN DREAMS, LOS ANGELES" - Los Angeles by travelgourmet

    I read that as well so while there last week I took a photo from the Hollywood/Highland center and though you can get the Hollywood sign it is very far away. I would go with the other suggestion from Griffith Park.
