We wonder how many would-be movie stars or struggling actors live along Beachwood Drive, where the street seems to lead right to “Hollywood.” On this road, you’ll see the Hollywood sign staring straight at you in its unimpeded glory. The best view from the street is on Beachwood Drive just north of Cheremoya Avenue. Find a parking spot, watch out for traffic, and vogue away.
Turn north onto Beachwood Drive from Franklin Avenue in Hollywood. Beachwood is between N. Gower Street and N. Bronson Avenue. Map it HERE.
While you’re there: Search for the “Giving Tree” inspired by Shel Silverstein’s children’s book about unconditional given to a boy by a tree. An easy hike to the “Giving Tree” from the Griffith Park entrance off of Canyon Drive also provides nice views of the Hollywood sign. Hidden Los Angeles provides detailed directions to this tree where you can reflect, appreciate, then make a wish! Check out the details and directions HERE.
