Griffith Observatory

The Griffith Observatory was our favorite place we visited while in Los Angeles. My husband is fascinated with anything astronomy/space related (he has a life long dream of becoming an astronaut) and we both found the Observatory to be really interesting. It’s also been featured in movies such as Rebel Without a Cause and La La Land, which is kind of cool. Aside from the building itself, the views of LA are stellar. There are great views of both the city and the Hollywood sign.

The best part? It’s free! You only have to pay for parking, which I feel is more than worth it for the view alone. We went on a weekday during non-tourist season and it was still somewhat busy, so I would advise against going on a weekend if possible.

What’s your favorite Hollywood landmark?
