    A wise man once said, “To gaze into a star is to gaze into one’s own soul.” A wiser man then said, “This man’s temperature is 105 degrees. He’s delirious.” I like to believe they were both right.

    Voted Best Of LA numerous times, the Observatory is the site of the famous James Dean knife fight scene in "Rebel Without A Cause". Aside from the heavenly view, the planetarium gift shop is awesome!

    Grab your hiking boots and make your way from the Los Angeles Zoo to the Griffith Observatory, made famous by “Rebel Without a Cause.” Stop at Trails Café for lunch.

    A must-see Los Angeles mountain-top location with amazing views where stars, moons, and galaxies mix with James Dean Hollywood lore. Sunsets at the Observatory are not to be missed.

    It's crowded, touristy, and often filled with screaming children, but it's a lovely structure with fantastic views. I suggest parking on the street below and taking the slightly strenuous walk up.
