Trip Report Where The Stars Hang Out - Griffith Observatory in Los Angeles

Jump to last reply

A little over a week ago, Tracy and I decided to drive the short distance over to the Griffith Observatory on a Sunday morning. For one thing, you can't beat the price...it's free, my favorite price. There's a seven dollar charge for the Planetarium movie, which we thought was worth it. If you are visiting or if you're a local who has kind of forgotten about this gem in our backyard, it is worth the time for a visit. Unless you are really into astronomy, the visit (including a half hour film) should not take much more than a couple of hours out of your day. If you hit a clear day or evening (much better chance now than when I visited there as a kid), the views are pretty spectacular, too.

Here's the link to my little report with photos of our morning at Griffith Observatory.
