The Griffith Observatory

Out-of-towners from the Midwest came to visit for ten days, so in the spirit of wanting to share the wonderful weather and attractions of Los Angeles, my hubby and I decided to take our visitors to the Griffith Observatory in Mount Hollywood’s Griffith Park. One of Los Angeles’ awesome tourist attractions, the Observatory showcases an expansive view of Downtown Los Angeles, Hollywood and the Pacific Ocean. The grounds also offer an excellent view of the Hollywood sign and the surrounding hiking trails of the main Griffith Park.

Since the Griffith Observatory opened in 1935, admission to the exhibit halls, which include an extensive array of space- and science-related displays, have been free to the general public. A small entrance fee will give you timed access to the planetarium and the observatory.

The weather was nice compared to that of the Midwest’s icy winter. However, our plans to showcase the view of this beautiful city were thwarted with an overcast afternoon. It is not always 72 and “sunny” in Southern California.

Regardless, it was all smiles for this California girl.
