Griffith Observatory



There are a lot of things to love about the Griffith Observatory. Some days, it’s the opportunity to grab an iced tea at the Trails Cafe on Fern Dell and find a much needed free bathroom and grassy patch to sit on at the top of your hike for a breather. Others, its the chance to take a sunset picnic at the top of the hill, watching the sun melt over the Hollywood sign while munching on brie and Trader Joe’s hummos. After a trip to Milk, it’s a chance to remember that weight is just a number and weigh yourself on different planets. Sometimes it’s an absolutely magical date night, complete with giant telescopes, a free look into the astros inside the marvelous architecture of the Griffith Observatory, and a visual vacation in time in the Planetarium show. In any case, it’s always, no matter the time of day, one of the most awesome views in Los Angeles.
