Keep reading this post, if you are still in doubt what to include in your Hollywood sightseeing tour in Los Angeles.
The Hollywood Sign:
Arguably the most legendary sign in the earth, The Hollywood Sign tops the list of sightseeing in Hollywood. Originally built to read “Hollywoodland,” it was constructed by a team of developers in 1923 to endorse the land to sell for shelter. Nearly 100 years afterward, it shaped into something totally different. With trails to hike to the sign, and also ample spaces all through Hollywood to take pictures, it is must see landmark. Enjoy great views of the sign from Lake Hollywood Park, or hike up Mount Lee Drive which will take visitors above the sign.
One of the most favorite hiking regions for both visitors and locals Runyon Canyon is nearly 3 miles from start to finish. Pets are allowed on the trek, and you may see a few celebrities on your hike. You will certainly not be disappointed as you’ll have a great look at the Hollywood Hills & the greater LA Basin.
Hollywood Forever Cemetery:
With countless events being held on its grounds throughout the years, The Hollywood Forever Cemetery has only grown in popularity. It’s where some of the most acknowledged stars of Hollywood are buried. The cemetery is the resting place for innumerable Hollywood stars like Charlie Chaplin, Judy Garland, Mickey Rooney, Nelson Eddy, Janet Gaynor and Clifton Webb among others. Also, the cemetery is rumored to be haunted & is a famous venue for Halloween.
Being one of LA’s most recognized milestones, The Griffith Observatory is no doubt a must see destination during your Hollywood sightseeing tour. Sitting comfortably on the south slope of Mt. Hollywood, the building & its adjacent grounds provide great views of LA. The Observatory has also played host to movies like “The Terminator” and James Dean’s “Rebel Without a Cause.
