  • Space! Science! Astronomy! The discoveries made here past to present are astounding. The tour is really worthwhile. Hike here or drive here, it's a must-see for all!
  • Really beautiful spot up in the mountains with panoramic views of the city and mountain range. Some nice peaceful trails away from the road. The observatory itself is fascinating (if you're astronomically inclined) and it's great to see cutting-edge scientific instruments mixed with still active historic telescopes. Would love to come up at night and see the place in action.
  • Amazing view over Pasadena. If you arrive early in the morning you can spent the time mostly alone or with just a few others.
  • Beautiful views, nice hiking trails through a pine forest, an opportunity to see giant telescopes and a working astronomic observatory, interesting exhibits.
  • Take Angeles Crest Highway and follow the signs! Beautiful drive up to the observatory, take a tour, go hiking, and check out some exceptional views!
