Exploring the Griffith Observatory!

Los Angeles, CA, United States
0 Kudos
My friends and I headed to the Griffith Observatory after having an awesome foodie day in Downtown LA. Plan early since traffic can be bad it may take you longer than usual to reach this popular tourist destination. The admission is free and from here you'll see amazing views of Downtown Los Angeles and the famous Hollywood sign from a distance. Here you'll find an array of displays of space and science related topics. Guest can also peek through telescopes and etc. Overall we really liked the observatory and the views of the city were a definitely a plus! There are designated areas of uber and lyft which we liked since it was more convenient than driving thru the heavy traffic up and down the hill.
