The Basics

The best view of the Hollywood Sign is from down below, at the corner of Sunset Boulevard and Bronson Avenue. Other top viewing spots include the Hollywood and Highland Center, the top of Beachwood Drive, and the Griffith Observatory. Most Los Angeles and Hollywood sightseeing tours include at least a glimpse of the sign, while some Hollywood Sign tours include a helicopter ride or a hike into the Hollywood Hills to see the sign from behind and a visit to the observatory. On hiking tours, a tour guide shows travelers to the optimal vantage points for the best views over Beverly Hills. Tours depart from downtown LA, Anaheim, and as far away as Las Vegas.

Private Full Day Tour of Los Angeles, Hollywood, Beverly Hills and Beaches
Our guide Rivers was great! He arrived 5 minutes early to pick us up at our hotel, had tons of historical and pop-culture anecdotes, and took us to the BEST, amazingly close spot to see the Hollywood sign - a true highlight of our day! We had plenty of time to walk around at each stop and never felt rushed.

Los Angeles and Hollywood Day Tour from Las Vegas
It was an amazing and excellent trip. The driver is so experienced and very much amicable. I recommend every one to try this LA trip once in their lifetime. Most importantly, the driver fulfilled my wife’s dream to see Hollywood sign from a close distant. For that, we thank her from the bottom of our heart!!!

Rough trip, but worth it if physically able

Los Angeles and Hollywood Day Tour from Las Vegas
Being able to experience both Los Angeles and Las Vegas in a single trip was priceless. It did take up the WHOLE day leaving 6 AM and getting back at 11 PM. Would not recommend bringing small children who may not be able to sit that long. Also, if you have arthritic issues the prolonged sitting is not fun. Travel was in a van shoulder to shoulder to shoulder so there is no social distancing. In short, loved the experience but not the accommodations.

30-Minute PRIVATE Ferrari California Driving Tour To Hollywood Sign
This is a recommended experience and I strongly encourage the upgrade ride to get closer to the sign. John/Jean was a great driver, tour guide, and photographer.

Things to Know Before You Go

  • The sign hasn’t been lit up since New Year’s Eve of 2000, but its bright white letters often make it seem to glow in the night.

  • Guided tours allow for safe photo op stops so there’s no need to make a dangerous stop in the middle of the mountain road.

  • Dogs are permitted on hiking trails so long as they arekept on leash.

  • Hikers should bring sun protection and water.

  • Hiking to the letters themselves is strictly prohibited (you’ll be met with a chain link fence and security cameras), but the Brush Canyon Trail brings hikers to the peak right behind the sign.

How to Get There

You can reach the sign on foot by taking the 6.4-mile (10.2-kilometer) round-trip hike on the Brush Canyon Trail in Griffith Park; the trailhead is at the end of Canyon Drive. Alternatively, visitors can drive into the hills for a closer look, arrive on a horseback riding excursion, or fly in on a helicopter tour for great aerial view.

When to Get There

The sign is always there, you just have to decide when you want to see it. Try a sunrise hike for fewer crowds and some solitude, or take in sunset from the hills while enjoying great views over homes of various movie stars in downtown Los Angeles. Griffith Park and its hiking trails are open daily from sunrise to sunset. Thanks to Southern California’s warm weather, the hike can be made any time of year.

Hollywood Sign History

Once aglow with 4,000 light bulbs, the sign once had its own caretaker, who lived behind the letter L until 1939. Originally constructed to spell Hollywoodland, the sign’s last four letters were removed in the 1940s as they started to crumble. In the late 1970s, celebrities Alice Cooper and Hugh Hefner joined forces with fans and other stars to save the famous symbol.
