Visited while on a Hollywood tour. Very nice amphitheatre. Here is where many orchestra performances are held in LA. Also, summer concerts and music festivals such as the pop music wango tango. We viewed from the hills. Looks like it would be a nice place to experience during a warm summer evening some musical talent while in LA or SoCal.

This place certainly proves the adage that the best things in life are free. I was in LA with my family and we took a drive to this point. What a splendid view it affords of the places around, including the famous Hollywood sign. We spent close to an hour at the place and all of us really liked it.

We liked seeing the views opposite the Griffith Observatory. Parking can be dicey, so try to get there early.

The Jerome C. Daniel Overlook above the Hollywood Bowl off Mulholland Drive is a popular stop for locals and tourists for photos of Downtown Los Angeles skyline, Griffith Park, and the iconic "HOLLYWOOD" sign. However, the on-site parking is very small and fills up very quickly (one car leaves, another takes its space immediately thereafter), leading to cars being illegally... More

Very nice overlook! If you have car you can stop there and than go via Mulholland drive to Beverly Hills. It is a very nice route.

The view from the Bowl Overlook is the best in the city. Get there early as there is little parking and it fills up fast. It closes fairly early but if you can get there for a night view its totally worth it.

If you walk a little further, right to the top, you get one of the best views of the city in all its glory and it truly is beautiful, especially on one of LA's signature sunny days.

Walk to the top and do a panoramic shot and see how many times you can capture someone. Nice outlook of the bowl where so many have performed- Hot August Night
