Thursday December 20th(Hollywood) 

11 am-2 pm Hollywood Sign Canyon Lake Drive

  •   This is the best place to see the Hollywood Sign.

“The exact street address of the location is 3000 Canyon Lake Drive, Hollywood.

  • The easiest way to get there is to take US 101 and then exit at Barham Blvd. Drive a couple of blocks, and then turn right to Lake Hollywood Drive. It gets a little confusing here because there are a lot of small roads everywhere (so it’d be helpful to have a map handy) but try to stay on Lake Hollywood Drive, and follow it around the reservoir to Tahoe Drive. Turn left at Tahoe Drive, and then turn right at Canyon Lake Dr. You’ll soon see a dog park on your left.This is where you want to park your car (by the dog park) because there’s “no stopping at anytime” up on the hill where the best viewing spot is located at. So, park your car here and then walk up to the hill. There’s always street parking available by the park.”
  • If you miss this spot, then you’ll need to keep driving as Canyon Lake Dr becomes Mulholland Hwy and you hit Durand Dr. The roads are very narrow on Mulholland Hwy and Durand Dr and you’ll have hard time finding parking there.
  • Once up on the hill, there’s a spot where you can take very nice pictures of the Hollywood Sign. And not only that, you’ll be able to see a view of the Hollywood Reservoir and Los Angeles as well (if it’s just not too smoggy).

4 pm-8pm –Grauman’s Chinese Theatre/Walk Of Fame

  • 6925 Hollywood Boulevard
  • Hollywood, CA
  • 323-463-9576
  • Grauman’s Chinese Theatre is at the northeast corner of Hollywood Boulevard and Orange Drive. From US 101, take the Highland Avenue exit and go south. The Hollywood and Highland parking lot is most convenient. The entrance is on the right about half a mile down the hill.
