Visit the Griffith Observatory

Los Angeles, California


Added by Trevor Cox

This easy access and incredible beautiful observatory is a must see. Free entrance, scenic views, and intriguing displays make this an excellent Los Angeles must-see.

A Griffith Observatory trip is very straightforward. Use the tagged location to find the parking lot. I advise heading up a couple hours before sunset to secure a spot, as we had to walk quite a way up the road from our car, when parking alongside the road. 

Head to the observatory, and adventure freely!

If you time it correctly, you can plan an awesome date. Sunset at Griffith, then a concert at The Greek Theatre.
