hollywood sign

One day we decided to play tourist and look at a local place from a different perspective, so… we took a tour of the Hollywood sign. The tour we went on takes you as close as you can legally get to the sign, which is still quite a ways away, but it was a nice day and the tour was half price. What more could we ask for?

The ride up there was on a very narrow and winding road… and then we had to go back down the other side. Mr. Toad’s Wild Ride doesn’t even come close to our ride in the tour bus. On the way back down to Hollywood we passed this very cool garage door:

We also zipped by the Capitol Records building, a Hollywood icon, and somehow managed to get a decent photo of it:

We had fun playing tourist and will definitely do it again sometime.

  1. Went to Hollywood a couple years ago with my grandaughter… we tried and tried to find that darn sign but couldnt! Then we went into a mall to shop and by golly there it was behind us in the distance. Never could figure out how to drive to it.

      It’s a horrendous (but beautiful) drive up a narrow, winding road with crazies all along the way driving like mad men. Our tour guide was one of them! But it was worth it in the end because of the views.
