Where is the Hollywood Sign?
The Hollywood Sign, more than just nine white letters!
Where is the Hollywood Sign, this impressive warning sign?
The address is; Griffith Park, Los Angeles, CA 90068, USA
These are the nine letters of the world-famous Hollywood lettering on Mount Lee in the Hollywood Hills, on which the letters are attached. Each letter is about 14 meters high and the lettering together 137 meters long. The sign is the symbol of the US film industry and the location of many American films. It is a place that almost every tourist in Los Angels would like to visit for a souvenir photo. Unfortunately, this place is widely closed off.
On our first visit to Los Angeles, this Hollywood Hills landmark was at the top of my list. The question was, where does the Hollywood Sign actually stand and how do we get there?
My son, who lives there knows it naturally and then drove us to this known vantage point.
It is not easy to find the right location!
We tried again on our own, drove through many narrow and winding streets, saw quiet residential areas with great properties and had a great view of the skyline of Los Angeles. Unfortunately, this was in the fog, which was safe for the season. It was February and the weather was not really nice that day.
The closest we came to the landmark was over North Beachwood Drive. We drove just before the intersection Glen Oak St, then the Ledgewood Drive along to the end. At the end of the road, you have a great view of the landmark.
What I liked less and I find very disturbing are the many power cables you will find everywhere.
The Hollywood Sign can be seen from many places!
From various points in the Hollywood Hills as from Deronda Drive and also from Hollywood Boulevard, there are some places where a clear view of the Hollywood Sing is possible.
From the outside of the Hollywood Highland Center you have in good weather from the upper floor an excellent view of the Hollywood logo.
Also from the Griffith Observatory you have a good, but a bit far away view.
Another way to see the Hollywood Sign is from Lake Hollywood Park.
Or you can drive along Runyon Canyon Road, park on the road and enjoy the view of the sign. The same applies to Mulholland Drive.
Seeing the Hollywood Sign in real and not out of the movie was something special for me. We had to drive quite far and the roads were sometimes very narrow, but it was worth it for our souvenir photos.
You have a fantastic view of Los Angeles from up there!
