  • It's a quick stop to the right when driving along Mulholland Drive toward Universal City. There are a couple places within a short walk walk to get a better view. Very easy access.  more »
  • 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 »

  • 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.
