The Hollywood sign is technically not in Hollywood. Mount Lee is part of the Santa Monica Mountains. It is located in Griffith Park in Los Angeles. Next time someone asks you where the Hollywood Sign is located, you will know that it is Los Angeles, California. It is not in Hollywood, but it is visible from Hollywood.

If you are not up for a hike to see the Hollywood sign up close, some great tourist locations to see it are from the Griffith Park Observatory as well as the fourth-floor viewing platform at Hollywood & Highland shopping mall.

However, if you want to avoid all the traffic and do not want to bothered by tourists, we recommend going to the intersection of Franklin Avenue and Beechwood Drive and drive north on Beechwood Drive. You will get the perfect view of the Hollywood sign!
