Welcome to the second largest city in the U.S.! I'm giving you an overview here on a classical tour in the City of Angels. I'd been visiting the city several times, I must say, there is always something new to discover.
Every time I visit a place, I'm looking for high points, where I can enjoy a nice view. In LA the best place to observe the city and the Hollywood sign is the Griffith Observatory. It's a lovely drive and parking is cheap. The exhibition itself is really educational, it's like a trip to the space. Catch the sunset and take in the sights! To me it was really peaceful and pretty amazing.
Hollywood sign: The symbol of entertainment all over the world It's been a place for long where magic is possible. The sign was erected in 1923 and originally read "HOLLYWOODLAND." Its purpose was to advertise the name of a new segregated housing development in the hills above the Hollywood district of Los Angeles. Believe it or not, even Hungarians played an important role in the film industry, let's just think of Adolf Zukor, who established Paramount Pictures in 1916. He had Hungarian origins, being born and raised on the Hungarian countryside. Another recognized person was William Fox, who was born in Tolcsva in the Tokaj region of Hungary. He founded Fox Film Cooperation in 1915.
