Historic Site in Glendale
Why I go Because of its hilltop site, you see the observatory from everywhere, so it’s a real icon. We love hiking up there even when it's not a typically sunny LA day. The Observatory has one of the best planetariums in the world, and I don’t think people realize that!
Insider tip Movie buffs will remember James Dean roaming around the Observatory in Rebel Without a Cause.
