  • The iconic Hollywood Bowl is a should see. Take note you can walk in and look around for free, just be respectful and take the walk up the steep hill. Enjoy  more »
  • The view is absolutely stunning. Nowadays, there are police posted here on nights when the Bowl is happening but I used to love to stop and listen to the music wafting up to the overlook. The view, in...  more »
  • Very limited parking! I can’t stress enough how small the parking lot is and how the tour vans park right in the middle blocking the few parking spots they have. It is not friendly for the handicapped...  more »

  • Good views to see h Hollywood sign and skyline of LA. Additional climb of very small number of steps is required to reach top of the hill which provides much better view but this place gets crowded. Parking is very limited and can hardly accommodate 10-12 cars which are often occupied by tour buses. There are a few roadside parking options available but most of the road is no-stopping zone. Additional space can be found roadside after driving 1/4 mile on Mulholland drive.
  • The view is amazing from here. It gets pretty crowded because there are so many others trying to capture the view. I also saw many photographers trying to catch a picture. We went right before they closed and the police came and told us to leave. They are very serious about the closing time, FYI.
  • The Bowl Overlook is another of LA's great viewpoints. Aside from its great top-down view of the Hollywood Bowl, this place affords great vistas of the Hollywood Sign, Griffith Observatory, and the LA Skyline. Pro-Tips: Things can get a little crowded here, so you might want to "go over the wall" and wander slightly downhill from the actual view point itself. There's also limited parking, and the entrance/ & exit are abysmal. I've found it easier to park off the road about a hundred yards up from the actual parking lot, and then stroll down to the site.
  • Pretty scenic overlook... Parking can be a challenge... Gives a nice view of Hollywood sign!
  • A have to go place for a nice bird view of la, it is tiny with space to park 10 cars so prepare to circle around , do not block traffic on a one lane down hill road.

Where to stay in Los Angeles

Los Angeles may be synonymous with luxury, but its accommodations include not only some of the most opulent and expensive hotels in the world, but also budget-priced hostels and inexpensive inns. In Los Angeles, a car opens up a world of lodging options, allowing you to stay outside the city proper and still have easy access to most major tourist attractions. If you don't mind splurging, consider Hollywood or Beverly Hills. To save money, stay near the airport or in the eastern suburbs of the city.
