I'm all for cool, free things to do in LA and this is one of the best! The Observatory is an amazing piece of LA architecture with an even better view. It also has a cool history as it became the iconic film location for Rebel Without A Cause's climactic scene. The exhibit inside the Observatory is also pretty interesting. And did I mention it's free?

An excellent observatory perched up in the hills with brilliant views over Los Angeles. At any time of day you will not be disappointed, but around sunset as the city lights up the view is particularly stunning. The planetarium show is great and there are several interesting exhibits - make sure to go around them all and listen to the interesting talks by the staff. Get here early or you'll have a bit of a walk from the nearest parking space!

I thought I'd seen some pretty amazing views of Los Angeles after all the hikes I'd been on, but the Griffith Observatory is now at the top of my list. You get a 360 degree view of the city next to an absolutely beautiful (make sure to bring your camera) building. The exhibits inside are informative and, best of all, free (except the planetarium shows), and you get to interact by touching pieces of meteorites, seeing how much you'd weigh on each planet, and more. Parking can be a bit of a feat, but there are people constantly coming and going, so if you drive to the top and circle around a few times you'll eventually get a spot.

This is a great place to take a date in the evening since the view is absolutely BREATH-TAKING from up there if the skies are clear. It's FREE to go in and check out the observatory and learn a little bit of history about the telescopes and the universe. This is also a fantastic place to "get-away" from all the hustle and bustle down in the city. I recommend going up there during non-peak hours, since it can get crowded on weekends and weekday afternoons because of school field trips...and that's no fun if you want to enjoy some peace from up there!

This place is awesome! I wouldn't say I'm particularly interested in space, but I still enjoy myself whenever I pay Griffith Observatory a visit.
Even if you aren't interested in the museum, coming here is worth it simply for the views! You can get a decent glimpse of the Hollywood sign from the front of the building, but if you walk around you'll see views from all directions! There is a fun hiking trail adjacent to the observatory, too.
