Placed on a hill and intended to help the sale of houses in the Californian Valley, The Hollywood sign is one of the most iconic sights in the world and we managed to get right up to it. Our tour guide found a secret spot away from tourist bus traps where it was just us and above, the alluminium letters. They were amazing to see.
The view over the valley of the city and the Hollywood bowl was panoramic and breathtaking also. I have far too many snaps of it on my camera roll.
