Quite possibly one of the most stunning spots in LA. From the winding road though Griffith Park, up to the perfectly manicured grounds of the Observatory to the incredibly fabulous views. We just loved soaking up the beauty of Griffith Park. Make this a stop on your trip for definite.

I wish I had time to explore the many trails in this hilly picturesque part of town. We found parking fairly close to the observatory and walked up for the views. Even on a sunny day there can be quite a bit of haze to disrupt the view.

Absolutely best views of entire LA area. From here you can see how big and vast this city is. On the other side great view of the Hollywood sign. Free parking on the top, in front of the observatory, but limited space.

Definitely worth a visit the views are superb and the exhibitions on site are worth seeing. A place for all the family..Go later in the day as you can " use telescopes set up for youngsters"

When visiting Los Angeles a must stop is Griffith Park. The park includes the observatory, The Greek Theatre, a golf course, a zoo, Travel Town, and 52 miles of hiking trails. And don't forget to do some horseback riding at Sunset Ranch. Have a great time!!!

If you go to the top by the observatory the views towards the Hollywood hills and LA are amazing. Lots of walks within the park

After you have seen them all- the Studios, the Chinese Theater, Holliwood Blvd, homes of movie stars, etc, -you deserve a break. Do yourself a favor and get going to Griffith Park - the largest, most "natural" urban park. This is Nature at it's best. Preserved forests, brooks, tracks (you actually can visualize Indian chiefs floating by...) yet, from the... More

We hiked to the top and saw the amazing view. Incredible! The path was wide enough to accommodate a lot of people. The parking can be difficult however.

Visited Griffith Park and Observatory this past weekend and couldn't begin to take it all in. The exhibits are fascinating starting with the perpetual clock at the entrance. Plan for an opportunity to go into one of the planetariums. Entertainment for adults and children as well.
