We were from out of town playing tourist, so we had to find our way here through Griffith Park but it was pretty easy. Lots of people and the upper lot was full so we parked on the roadside near the top and walked up a short distance. The view of the city and the mountains and the Hollywood sign are all just as great as you would hope. Inside the observatory it is all kinds of science and fun things to explore. Visit here if at all possible and then every time you see it on TV, and you will, you can say you were there.
