What people are saying:

The white letters are the most powerful symbol of Hollywood culture, so you can still see long lines of tourists coming to punch in, and below is a park and some streets to stroll around.

Introduction

The Hollywood sign is an iconic landmark in Los Angeles’ Griffith Park. Built in 1923 by a housing developer, the sign originally read “Hollywoodland” and served as an advertisement for a new development in the Hollywood Hills. It was meant to be a short-term installation, but quickly gained international recognition as the film industry took off. The sign’s uneven layout and stark white lettering have spawned imitations the world over, from Serbia to New Zealand to Indonesia. The city of Los Angeles proved its dedication to the sign in 2010 when a successful city-wide campaign was launched to save the sign and surrounding land from an ambitious developer.
