Living in California, Washington, and Utah only being 22, I would have never imagined my life would require me to move so much (especially during my teens-early twenties). That being said, the majority of my friends are out of state which means they like to book weekend get-a-ways to visit me in California. There are always a few “Must go” destinations I like to try to conquer in the short time I have with them, the famous Hollywood Sign is one of them. Just FYI- the best time to get to the Hollywood sign on a weekend is EARLY! lol, LA traffic is no joke people, and driving there is not a picnic! Have Waze downloaded, pick some good tunes, grab yourself a starbucks, and get your tourist face on!
My favorite walk to the Hollywood sign is off of Beachwood in a residency. It’s a three mile hike that takes about an hour and a half! There are many ways to get to the Hollywood sign, but whenever I am limited on time Beachwood is my go-to! Its short, sweet , and to the point (which is the Instagram picture obviously). Parking on the weekend gets pretty crazy, so the most ideal situation would be to park wherever you see an open space and then Uber up to Beachwood! If you are feeling pretty energetic and you are down for a longer walk, you can skip the Uber & walk from wherever you found parking. Weekdays you can usually find parking near the hike entrance, but be aware the residence living there aren’t too fond of the continuous amount of people parking in their hood 24/7. I suppose I can’t blame them though, so watch for those sneaky parking signs! After our hike we hit Urth cafe & some cute boutiques off of Melrose. Yes, including Dash. To be honest , I am not a huge Kardashian fan, but my guest was dying to check it out… I suppose I have to be a good host 😉 haha. I hope you’re all having a great week!
