About Hollywood Sign, Los Angeles

Perhaps the most famous, immensely popular and the most celebrated cultural icon of the Hollywood century is the Hollywood sign. Situated upon the Mount Lee of the Hollywood Hills, it was built to promote and advertise the development and progress of real estate business. Being a bearer of national heritage of American cinema, it is safeguarded by authorities and has been used as an official appearance for establishing movie culture in the movies since decades.

The sign underwent the facing of severities of weather and damage, and therefore has been restored to render permanency of grandeur and perfectness of condition for years to come. Its usage in films requires charge for being licensed. However, the publicity of the sign remains an elite grandeur for Hollywood and a cinematic fascination for the international tourists.

Hollywood Sign, Los Angeles Reviews

  • The hike to the Hollywood sign was long (our route was approximately 5km one way) but easy walking. The scenery was nice (rolling Hollywood hills and a view of the city) and quiet. Weather was hot and dry. Was neat to see the sign up close and get some pictures.

  • In all honesty it mainly gets five stars because of its iconic status (as well as the stellar Los Angeles view). Hiking up here is a bucket list item for any native southern Californian (or at least should be) and whichever route you take is completely worth it. Plus every hike in this area is at least remotely challenging, so you can get up there and feel mad accomplished.

  • I started my hiking from the observatory parking it cost is 4 buck for hour and if you are fast enough you need at least 3 hours. And you have almost 4 miles in ahead. You can walk above or under the sign but not that much close that you can touch that. From the above you have the best view of LA. Try to find a clear day for hiking then you can enjoy the view. The only thing that bothering me during the hiking was the horse’s poo on the road.

  • It's tough to review a legend, and the Hollywood sign is probably going to be the first legend you see when you visit LA. To be quite honest, for a legend, the sign is a wee bit boring up close and personal. There's a road, Mt. Lee Dr., which leads to this cell phone/ TV antenna type complex, and just below the the road, down the hill, is the sign. I got my photo shoot because we asked this California Dept. of Transportation dude down the road to open the gate for us. He had the key, and, apparently, I had the key to get him to unlock the gate. Bit of an adventure getting down the rocky hill hill and back up again in those platform boots, but we made it. When we were there, wasn't a soul in sight. Not sure about clambering around up there, or using Mt. Lee Dr. We did it, and it looks like lots of other folks have, too. So: if you like monuments, like the Sears Tower, or Old Faithful, the Hollywood sign might be right up your alley. Otherwise, there's a great view of LA from this spot.

  • Cool place to visit. A must see for any visitor. It's worth the walk and time traveled to see the city. Be aware of bums and possible pickpockets during the evening times.just be aware of your surroundings while anywhere in LA.
