The best views in L.A.
The Observatory has been a local icon since 1935, and is one of the few places in L.A. where visitors can actually get past the smog and see the (real) stars. The newly renovated planetarium boasts state-of-the-art star projections onto one of the world's largest planetarium domes.

      See the Hollywood sign up close!
      Atop the hills that boast the famous Hollywood sign sits the beautiful Griffith Observatory. The view from the walkway around the Griffith, of the valley lit at night, is breath taking. If astronomy makes your heart beat faster then bring your defibulator because the new "show of the stars" is sure to speed up your beat. You can now schedule an appointment to view the nighttime sky through the observatory telescope. It is well worth making an appointment. Don't forget your camera whether you come at night or during the day because the view is one you'll want to record for posterity.

      Great location
      This is a really wonderful Observatory, we have gone here on many occasions, enjoyed when the weather permits a spectacular view of our great city below.

      Great tourist place to visit!
      We go to a lot of Observatories around the country and this is one of the best and also has great views of the city. A very scenic drive up to the top. Go early in the morning so there won't be very many people or just before they close.
