Hollywood Bowl Overlook
Time Out says
Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that venues remain open.
This overlook in the Santa Monica Mountains has fantastic views of the downtown skyline all the way to the ocean (on a clear day, you can see Catalina!) and it's right on top of the Hollywood Bowl. It's a prime place to be on a clear night or when your favorite band is playing a sold out show at the Bowl. Get there as early as possible—the parking lot is tiny and while there is street parking, the park is in a particularly curvy spot on Mulholland Drive and cars whiz by even at night.
