One of my favorite places in Los Angeles is the Griffith Observatory. It’s iconic. It’s nerdy. It’s free. (Yes, can you believe it there is something to do for free in Los Angeles).
Built in 1935 in the Hollywood Hills, the building is an important place for astronomers to further their research.
Today this icon is a hot-spot in Los Angeles, popular with both locals and tourists. The Griffith Observatory is one of the best spots for hiking in the city, with trails beginning here that lead all over the Hollywood Hills.
The mission of the Griffith Observatory is to “inspire everyone to observe, ponder, and understand the sky.”
With this mission in mind, I’ll keep this post short and let you ponder some of my favorite shots taken from the Observatory’s grounds. Take in the beautiful Griffith Observatory views and let them inspire you!
