I've been trying to visit this place for awhile and every time I visit LA CA. I always forget, but not this time. I was so thrilled to be here. To see the Hollywood Sign and be educated at the same time about the work, earth, etc... Lots of information. This is a beautiful place for everyone. They have shuttles to drive you up if you don't want to pay to park

Outside of this place, they have a bust of James Dean and a plaque commemorating him and the movie Rebel Without a Cause for using the Griffith Observatory as a setting for the classic American movie. It explains how this was the first movie that included an observatory in a movie, and how well it promoted this observatory. It was also in La La Land and Sandy Wexler. The Griffith Observatory is an American icon with many cool things to experience, including the planetarium. It also has an amazing view of the city of Los Angeles. This is something you have to do if you are ever in this city.

In the movie LA LA Land they had this place to themselves. Well imagine the exact opposite of that and you might get a sense of what your visit will be like.

We hiked to the observatory from Hollywood/Western Metro station. Amazing views! I recommend to take the West Trail, it's a little bit longer mut totally worth it!
