The park for dreamers~

Walt Disney would go here to dream up new stories of mice and men. He did a great job following through on those imaginations. I go to Griffith Park to dream and write just like... read more

Walt Disney would go here to dream up new stories of mice and men. He did a great job following through on those imaginations. I go to Griffith Park to dream and write just like Walt and you can feel that magic vibe he was able to tune into. It's a Hollywood thing. This place is a vortex- This place... More

This is a great place to visit once, don't expect to see too much inside although the views from here are amazing and a lot of people really enjoy a good walk around here.

The Old Los Angeles Zoo in the Griffith Park is definitely worth a visit. It's an old and abandoned zoo with most of the structures still in place. It has been in use last time in 1965. It can be a bit creepy but offers great photo ops.

My brother lives near it and he loves going from time to time so I wanted to see it myself. It's incredible and definitely a must see.

We had to park and walk up about 1/2 mile to the observatory. It is nice view from up there of the city below and the planetarium is probably worth a visit on a clear night although we did not go into the planetarium--just visited the grounds.

Great little escape from the urban jungle. Hikes aren't too taxing, views are superb and there is a little of everything to see.

A great place to hike up to the observatory with the same name. Unforgivingly uphill all the way but its a safe hike up to the summit on a well-groomed trail. You'll meet friendly healthy fellow outdoors lovers all the way up and down.

This is a spot that is great day or night. Come during the day to check out the museum or come at night to see a beautiful skyline. Really, you must see this place if you visit LA. Be forewarned that parking can be difficult and there is not a lot in the way of restaurants or amenities if the... More

It's fun to blow 1/2 a day at the Griffith Observatory and Griffith Park. Everything is free (except for the movie in the planetarium...but it's cheap, and well worth it!). The views are outstanding on a clear day. Parking sucks, as the lots are pretty small, so when we went there were cars lining the road for about 1/2 a... More

Great place for hiking, views of the mountains, ocean and L.A. But also a free observatory and astronomy museum/science center - the narrated shows are a bargain! Try to take public transportation or get their early - parking is a problem. Be prepared to hike up the hill from where you end up parking, unless you're very lucky. You'll see... More
